THE VALUE OF REAL GRASS – as erosion control!

Posted by:

Natural grasses slow the flow of water which minimizes soil loss and captures silt from the water.

Run off of water and pollutants are greatly reduced by a highly maintained lawn.

Dense turf grass cleans/filters the water helping to maintain a high quality environment.

A healthy lawn prevents run-off, absorbing rainfall 6 times more effectively than a wheat field and 4 times better than a hay field.

Each acre of grass produces enough oxygen for 64 people a day.

THE VALUE OF REAL GRASS – during a HEAT WAVE!

Posted by:

Natural grass surfaces reduce temperature extremes by absorbing the sun’s heat during the day and releasing it slowly in the evening, thus moderating temperature!

Natural grasses cool temperatures appreciably, thus working as exterior ‘air conditioners’!

Turf cools itself and it’s surroundings by the evapo-transpiration process.  Each grass blade acts as an evaporative cooler.

Consider the fact that on a block of 8 average homes, the lawns have the cooling effect of 70 tons of air ...
