7 Benefits to a healthy lawn
Our Lichfield grass cutting service would like to share hints and tips to a healthy lawn and why its important to have your lawn care for by Lord of the Lawns Lichfield.
Did you know keeping your lawn managed provides a host of benefits?
Filters & Captures Runoff Grass slows down and absorbs runoff. Rainwater filtered through a healthy lawn can be 10 times less acidic than water running off a hard surface
Reduces Heat Grass dissipates the heat island effect caused from asphalt. Lawns can be 30 degrees cooler than asphalt and 20 degrees cooler than bare soil!
Improves Air Quality Grass play a vital role in capturing dust, smoke particles and other pollutants. Without grass, these pollutants will remain in the air we breathe.
Absorbs Carbon Dioxide Lawns are the largest carbon sink in the U.S., which sucks up and stores greenhouse gas carbon dioxide from the atmosphere.
Generates Oxygen 2,500 sq. ft. of grass releases enough oxygen for a family of four to breathe!
Supports Biodiversity Grass, trees, shrubs and other plants provide food and habitat for birds and small mammals.
Controls Soil Erosion Grass controls erosion through its natural, dense, and fibrous root system. Without grass, soil erodes into streams and lakes limiting how sunlight penetrates the water.
