6 Reasons Why Grass is Good

Nature didn’t create grass just to look pretty. It’s filled with goodness for all living things. 

Grass serves several vital functions important to a balanced ecosystem.

Grass reflects and absorbs the sun’s strong summer rays while reducing glare and dust, helping to cleanse and cool the environment and sweeten the air.

You get the picture!

Grass Abates Noise

The calming sensation of a grassy yard isn’t just an illusion. Grass actually absorbs noise rather than simply bouncing it back into the air. Think of it as nature’s sound cushion.

Grass Prevents Erosion

Grass Filters the Air and Water

Through absorption of carbon dioxide and natural pollutants, grass naturally cleanses the air while releasing oxygen into the atmosphere.  It’s a good trade!

Grass also purifies water as it passes through plant root zones on its journey through the soil.

Grass Adds Value
