Your lawn gives you a great place to relax and spend time with your family.  But there is a lot more to lawns than meets the eye!  According to the National Association of Landscape Professionals, lawns can also:

  • Create oxygen: The International Society of Aborculture found that one acre of grass creates more oxygen than an acre of rainforest.  Furthermore, a study by the University of Maryland found that the grass and trees along the U.S. interstate system produces enough oxygen for 22 million people (1996 Maryland Turfgrass Study).
  • Reduce run off: A study by the Colorado State University Cooperative Extension found that the typical golf course absorbs four million gallons of water during a 1-inch rainstorm.
  • Help keep you cool in the summer: Lawns can be 30% cooler than a blacktop driveway on a hot summer day.
  • Keep things quieter: Research by the University of Nebraska found that utilizing grass turf on road embankments reduces traffic noise by 200% when compared to concrete embankments.
