A healthy lawn is important all year round, not just for our well-being, but also for nature. There are a number of environmental benefits to turf, here are some of them:
Grass absorbs carbon dioxide and other pollutants from the air.
Grass is the third most important source of oxygen. A 50 foot x 50 foot lawn produces enough oxygen for a family of four every day!
The grass roots in your lawn help hold and stabilise soil. A well-maintained lawn keeps the soil alive and helps to improve the nutrient levels in the soil.
Turf is a natural water recycling system. It helps to reduce water runoff and prevent localised flooding in the event of heavy rain. It helps to purify rainwater and helps recharge groundwater.
Turf provides a natural environment for living things from insects to microorganisms.
