Environmental Benefits Of Turf

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.
