Everyone loves a lush, green yard but did you know that your lawn is packed with a bunch of benefits that go way beyond looks? At Simply Green Lawn, we want to keep you in the loop. Check out some of these cool perks of having a natural grass lawn.
Clean Air to Spare
Each blade of grass in your yard pulls in used, polluted air and pushes out fresh, pure oxygen. Now think about the millions of blades of grass in your lawn working together. The result is pretty amazing! 2,500 square feet of natural grass can clean up to 300 pounds of carbon out of the air every year, producing cleaner air for you and your family to breathe.
Don’t Run Away From Runoff
A natural turf lawn reduces pollutants from slipping through the soil into groundwater. It can also help to absorb and redirect excess rainwater. This means you’re helping to keep flooding and harmful runoff under control just by having a nice yard!
Beat the Heat
Have you ever stood in the middle of a parking lot on a hot Atlanta summer day and thought your shoes might melt to the pavement? Now think about if you’ve ever had that feeling while you’re standing on a soccer field. Grass absorbs heat, keeping the surrounding area 14 degrees cooler than bare soil and a whopping 30 degrees cooler than asphalt. So, the next time you want to cool off, try heading to the park and finding some grass under a shade tree!
