Most people don’t give much thought to grass, but if they did, they’d know:
Grass is green in more ways than one. For instance, a 50×50-foot area of grass produces enough oxygen to meet the breathing needs of a family of four. At the same time, it’s also absorbing the enemies of good air like ozone, hydrogen fluoride, carbondioxide, and perosyacetyle nitrate (you can say that again).
Lawns are cool. An average healthy lawn has the same cooling power as an 8.5-ton capacity air conditioner (most home units have a 3-4 ton capacity.) Helping your lawn breathe is yet another reason to keep your lawn regularly aerated, fertilized, mowed and maintained
Lawns are dust busters, acting as natural filters removing pollutants, dust, and other particulates not only from the air, but from the water to the tune of 12 million tons annually.
Lawns keep you grounded. With as much as 90% of its weight in its roots, grass is about as efficient of an erosion control as there is. Dethatching, overseeding, aerration, and fertilizer applicaton programs are some of the services that can help keep grass’ roots strong.
Lawns add value. According to buyer surveys, landscaping and lawns that are well maintained add up to 15 percent to the value of a home. And according to a Gallup Survey, homeowners see lawn and landscaping improvements as adding value to their homes more than than any other. And that’s year another reason many people consider professional lawn care and landscape maintenance services.
Lawns are a good investment, with a recovery rate from 100% to 200% for lawn and landscaping improvements, compared to decks and patios with a 40% to 70% recovery rate.
Lawns help create memories and happiness. Of course, healthy lawns add so much more to our quality of life that can’t be measured, although studies have shown that hospital patients with a view of lawns and the sky healed more quickly than those without. And, there’s probably few among us who don’t remember running barefoot and rolling around on our lawns, whether it was yesterday or 30 years ago.
At Meadows Lawn Care, we’re always ready to give you more time to enjoy running barefoot through the grass while we keep that grass as healthy and as green as green can be.
