8 Simple Reasons for Maintaining a Healthy Lawn

By September 16, 2015Blog

A well-maintained lawn can help to provide a healthier, more pleasant environment for you, your family and your community. Here are some interesting facts about lawns that you may not be aware of:

• A 50′ x 50′ lawn produces enough daily oxygen for a family of four.

• Grass acts as a natural air conditioner by absorbing the sun’s heat.

• Grass helps to clean the air, absorbing pollutants and returning pure oxygen in exchange.

• A thick, healthy lawn naturally deters allergy-causing weed pollen.

• Biting and stinging insects are found less often in lawns that are free of blooming weeds.

• Noise is reduced in areas where lawns are present (soft-surfaced landscapes absorb sound, while hard surfaces reflect it).

• Thick turf filters surface water before it returns to ground water supplies.

• Grass works as a natural barrier to soil erosion caused by wind and water.

By keeping your lawn in top shape, you’ll be rewarded with a wealth of benefits in return.
