Oxygen production – One person can get all of their daily oxygen from just 625 square feet of grass. This means that an average-sized lawn of 7,500 square feet provides enough oxygen for 12 people!

Allergy control – Grass filters dust and pollen that can cause health problems for some people.

Temperature control – Eight average-sized lawns can have the same cooling effect as 70 tons of air conditioning. A healthy lawn can help to cut down on cooling costs during the warmer months.

Pollutant control – Healthy lawns absorb pollutants such as carbon dioxide and sulfur dioxide, then convert them into oxygen.
