The sights and smells that come from green grass, vibrant flowers, and fragrant shrubs is second to none.
It’s easy to appreciate a well maintained lawn or landscape, but did you know the real value comes from so much more. Many people don’t realize that grass is a natural coolant. it is much cooler in temperature than asphalt or cement. Lawns are 31 degrees cooler than asphalt and 20 degrees cooler than bare soil. When you have trees and other plants the natural air conditioner benefits continue. Tree shading homes can reduce attic temperatures by 40 degrees.
Healthy lawns not only cool the air but they clear the air. Grasses can absorb carbon dioxide and break it down to oxygen and carbon. A 50′ by 50′ lawn has the ability to produce enough clean oxygen for a family of four.
