Environmental Benefits of Lawn Care
Maintaining a healthy lawn filled with great green grass does more than boost your home’s curb appeal. It might surprise Nashville homeowners to know that lawn care can benefit the environment!
Some lawn care companies use chemicals and improper techniques that can do more harm to your lawn than good. However, the lawn care experts at Pure Green want to stress that taking proper care of your lawn can be great for Mother Nature.
Here are a few of the environmental benefits lawn care provides:
Improves Soil Structure
Compacted soil can be detrimental to your lawn as it doesn’t allow nutrients, sunlight, water, and oxygen to sink through to the roots. Aerating your lawn through either liquid or core aeration can break up that compaction and give your turf a chance to breathe. It’s the single most valuable action you can take to improve the soil quality, encourage a deeper root system, and build a healthier seedbed for grass.
Creates a Cooling Effect
Have you ever taken a trip to downtown Nashville in the summer? It can feel unbearable due to hard surfaces—think concrete and asphalt—that trap heat. Greenery, on the other hand, plays a role in reducing heat. Lawns, trees, and shrubs help keep us cool by providing shade and evapotranspiration, the process of water evaporating off plants.
Cleans the Air
Too much CO2 in the air can lead to high temperatures and other dangers to the environment. Encouraging healthy tree and shrub growth can help reduce our carbon footprint, as they remove carbon dioxide from the air and release it as oxygen.
Additionally, grass can trap dust, which is not only better for our lungs but also keeps our homes and cars clean from any unwanted filth.
