A healthy well-maintained lawn can have many benefits that we don’t often realize. It adds value to your home. It can provide a calming, stress reducing place to relax and enjoy, as well as provide for recreation and entertaining opportunities for your guests. A lawn reduces heat and noise, improves air quality and reduces dirt and dust from entering your home. It also prevents soil erosion by trapping water to help the absorption into the soil. The grass roots will also improve the soil over time. Grass also does a great job at absorbing carbon from the atmosphere. These long-term benefits of lawn care help not only us but the environment for a better tomorrow.
A healthy nutrient rich soil is the backbone of a beautiful lawn. It’s when all the nutrients are optimized and at the proper levels, the lawn can excel. It can better survive the changes of adverse environmental conditions such as drought, and extreme heat or cold. Diseases can also be better tolerated when the grass isn’t stressed due to lack of food. Keeping a well-maintained soil full of nutrients is the best protection and insurance in maintaining a healthy lawn.
