Is Lawn Care Dangerous or Hazardous? Does Lawn Care pollute?


By



Besides an aesthetically pleasing value, a healthy lawn extends much further in ecological and environmental contributions.

* Because lawns transpire and evaporate moisture, the surface temperature cannot exceed 80 degrees when watered correctly.

* Thick lawns reduce soil erosion. The thick roots hold soil in place. Soil erosion is a major polluting contributor. A weak lawn, while many think is clean and natural, has bare spots that erode with rain and clog our water ways with soil particles and the pollutants that stick to them.

* Thick lawns reduce water runoff by slowing down water flow and allowing for more ground water penetration.

* Thick healthy lawns act like a massive filter and purify ground water. A think lawn has lots of organic material in the soil and many living organisms. Both these soil items contribute to removal and breakdown of pollutants. Weak lawns with bare areas cannot maintain soil organics or soil organisms.

* Grass produces oxygen. It has been documented that a healthy 2,500 square foot lawn, which is very small, produces enough oxygen for a family of four during the growing season.

* Grass absorbs atmospheric Carbon Dioxide, (a major greenhouse gas), and puts in the soil. This process increases soil organic matter and soil cleansing ability.

* Good thick turf absorbs sound reducing noise levels in local areas

* Lawns absorb air pollutants. It is estimated that lawns absorb 12 million (12,000,000) tons of dust and dirt from the air each year.

* A good healthy lawn improves the value of a home financially.

Maintaining a healthy lawn is good for our water sources, noise, and atmosphere. At the FALL Guys we are advocates of strong healthy lawns. Maintaining a healthy lawn is a sound approach to contributing to reducing your carbon footprint.
