THE VALUE OF REAL GRASS – during a HEAT WAVE!
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 conditioning!
