29 Apr Benefits of a Healthy Lawn Turf
If kept healthy and maintained, your instant turf makes your property look beautiful while also adding value to it. In addition to enhancing your lifestyle, a healthy lawn turf also offers plenty of social and environmental benefits.
Here’s why having a healthy lawn turf is beneficial.
Improving air quality
A healthy lawn can effectively absorb carbon dioxide and release oxygen, decreasing greenhouse gases in the environment. A 200sqm patch of lawn grass can supply enough oxygen for a family of four. The lawn can also act as a natural air filter that captures pollutants in urban and suburban areas.
Runoff and the subsequent soil erosion contribute to contamination in water supplies. But with the root systems reducing the force of the water flow, the water instead seeps into the soil. The lawn’s root system is effective in binding soil and keeping it from getting carried off by rain and wind. It also slows down rainwater runoff and plays a role in restoring soil to healthy conditions.
A well-maintained lawn turf can act as a natural fire barrier, capable of keeping fire from spreading out of control. Similarly, it is an effective deterrent for pests and insects that may roam the area.
Regulating noise and temperature
Turf grasses absorb sounds better than gravel, pavement or the bare ground. You can enjoy a quieter time as any noise that penetrates the lawn turf grows softer and less irritating. Additionally, a healthy lawn can keep your home cooler, protecting you from intense heat.
