1. A lawn is environmentally friendly
A lawn reduces the amount of storm water run off and it also controls soil erosion. A lawn will also help with the decomposition of pollutants and help to restore soil quality.
2. A lawn reduces stress
It has been shown in experiments that standing on grass in bare feet can reduce the signs of stress. Heart rate and blood pressure have been shown to fall leading to an overall reduction in stress levels.
3. A lawn produces oxygen.
A lawn which is approx. 250 square metres in size can absorb carbon dioxide from the air and produce enough oxygen for a family of four to breathe.
A lawn will draw pollutants from the air, increasing the carbon benefit.
4. A lawn is the ultimate feature for fun, enjoyment and relaxation.
Not only is a lawn one of the lowest cost surfaces for you and your family to enjoy it is one of the safest. It is obviously safer to fall onto a lawn than it would be to fall on a hard paved surface. Looking after and maintaining a beautiful lawn is also a relaxing and rewarding experience.
5. A lawn is a self cleaning surface.
A lawn can actually clean itself by taking in garden debris and organic matter. When was the last time you saw the neighbours washing down the lawn?
6. Freshly cut grass
The smell of freshly cut grass in spring is constantly at the top of the list of the most pleasant and evocative smells.
7. A lawn actually adds value to a property.
It is known that a well maintained lawn and landscaped garden significantly adds roadside appeal and value to a property.
8. A lawn is a natural filter.
Not only does a lawn trap and filter dust and dirt from the air it also can reduce pollution by purifying the water passing through its root zone.
9. A lawn provides the perfect canvas for a beautiful garden.
It has long been recognised that the single most pleasing feature in the overall design of many beautiful gardens is a well proportioned lawn.
10. A lawn is cool.
Another benefit that everyone can enjoy from a lawn is its tremendous cooling effect. On a hot summers day a lawns surface can be at least 30 degrees cooler than that of tarmac.
