Your lawn is the foundation for many of your favourite activities, but did you know that lawn has many environmental benefits as well? Besides being attractive and functional, turf also plays a significant role in our ecosystem. In fact, the healthier the turf, the more protective it is of the environment. Healthy turf minimises erosion, reduces runoff, absorbs rainwater, neutralises pollutants, cleans the air and more.
Prevention of Soil Erosion
Grass protects the soil underneath from erosion caused by wind and water. The roots of healthy turf stabilise the soil by keeping it from shifting. Dense turf can also reduce dust by preventing the soil from being blown around by the wind.
Absorption of Rainwater
Turf also helps reduce runoff by capturing and filtering rain, which also replenishes groundwater supply. The leaves and stems of grass cover soil and catch raindrops, interrupting runoff flow long enough to give the soil particles a chance to soak up the water.
Noise and Glare Reduction
Turf is non-reflective, so it acts as a kind of screen, softening the sun’s glare. Turf can also absorb sound (as can trees and shrubs), as opposed to hard surfaces such as asphalt, which reflect sound. Your turf can significantly reduce both glare and noise in and around your home, fashioning your yard into an all-around more pleasant place to spend your time.
Natural Air Cleaning
Turf naturally consumes carbon dioxide and converts it into oxygen and carbon. Your own lawn is capable of providing you with most of the air you breathe, day after day. Turf also takes in other gases such as sulphur dioxide. These pollutants would otherwise create a haze that could significantly reduce sunlight and have potentially harmful effects on your health.
