4 Ways Having a Healthy Lawn is Good for the Environment
Everyone knows about the aesthetic qualities of having a healthy lawn: your home becomes more attractive and you increase curb appeal. It’s easy to understand the attractiveness of a beautiful and healthy yard, however, most people don’t know that there are also environmental benefits of having a healthy lawn.
Here are a few of the ways in which your lawn at home in Melbourne can help the environment.
Everyone’s been on asphalt or concrete on a hot Melbourne day, and we all know how scorching these surfaces can get. Unlike asphalt and concrete, though, lawn grasses cool themselves when heated by the sun, this makes the surrounding areas cooler as well. Having a healthy lawn can actually help you to save on your energy bill during the summer.
No one likes to deal with having poor soil, and erosion can do a lot of damage to it. Lawns provide control against soil erosion from wind and water, and the root production can be beneficial for the soil structure.
Improved Air Quality
Air quality in Melbourne can really suffer from air pollutants especially during the warmer months. Dust, pollen, and other substances in the air can do a lot of damage. Fortunately, a healthy lawn can help to capture a number of these air pollutants, making the air quality better. Grass also captures carbon dioxide, making the air easier to breathe around the grass.
The grass can make the air easier to breathe because it doesn’t just capture carbon dioxide, it produces oxygen as well. Studies show that a 25m2 lawn area produces enough oxygen to meet the everyday needs of a family of four. So, a healthy lawn can make the air easier on your entire family’s lungs.
Those are just four of the ways that a healthy lawn can be good for the environment. With healthy grass, you can breathe easier, your energy bills will decrease, and your grass will absorb some of the air pollutions. It can even absorb noise pollution around your house.
