Saving the planet.... one roll at a time!

 Did you know?!  100m2 of grass produces enough clean air for more than 3 people, offsets 497km of driving and does the work of 81 trees!!!

And that’s not all! find out just what exactly your lawn is up to other than providing a gorgeous landscape!

 

IT’S A CLEAN AIR SUPER-PRODUCER!

Few people know that grass produces clean air for our environment at a far greater rate than the same area of trees. In fact, one acre of trees with full canopy coverage produces enough clean air for 8 people. The same acre in just grass cover produces enough for 70 people!

 

IT FILTERS OUR AIR

Ever notice the dirt streaks on your car after a rain? That’s the pollution and dust that is brought down with the rainwater. Grass catches airborne pollutants like carbon dioxide, sulfur dioxide and smog, largely with the action of the wind and rain. A very useful function that a paved area, an artificial lawn or patioscape simply can’t accomplish!

 

IT CLEANS OUR WATER

Lawns and their underlying thatch act as a huge filter for the water to pass through. Coming down as rain or flowing in from other ground or paved areas, water moves through the grass and reaches the municipal systems or bodies of water clearer and cleaner. Apart from ocean flora, there is no better biological filter for water

 

IT BUILDS UP OVERALL SOIL HEALTH

Grass coverage builds up the health of the topsoil through the decay of grass clippings and other roots and shoots. It introduces necessary clean air and organics for the inhabitants, like earthworms and microbes. They also have better access to water because the soil around a healthy grass root system will hold more water.

 

IT REDUCES EROSION AND RUN OFF

Your lawn and its root system will work to "hold" soil in place, so that the soil stays where it’s needed and dirt in water passing through will keep from running off into the drainage system or more unwanted places, like your basement.
