Everyone agrees that a lush green lawn provides a fantastic place to have fun in the warmer months, but did you know that a responsibly maintained lawn is a great choice for the environment? Lawns oxygenate the air, filter groundwater and absorb nutrients. They contain soil erosion and absorb more carbon dioxide than trees. Well-fed lawns even make your home a more enjoyable place; lawns reduce heat in your home by cooling the air and reduce traffic noise by dampening sound.
A responsibly cared-for lawn can improve not just the curb appeal of your home, but the quality of your life.
