Lawn Care | Benefits of a Greener, Healthier Lawn

by Alex Burda on February 15, 2013

A strategic lawn care program comes with many benefits. Creating a green, healthy lawn free of weeds, pest and  diseases is possible for all of us. With the correct guidance you can transform even the worst disasters or enhance the appearance of one that is already in a reasonably good condition.

 

What are the Benefits of a Lawn Care?

 

Did you know there are both aesthetic and environmental benefits associated with that beloved piece of turf grass. Although not exhaustive, we have provided a list of benefits that may persuade you to put that extra bit of effort into caring for your living and breathing property asset.

1/ Improved Air Quality

A healthy lawn can act like a trap for dust and other particle matter thereby improving air quality. Particularly apparent in suburban areas where cars and other motorised vehicles produce harmful contaminants.

 

2/ Improved Water Quality

We live in a society that continues to produce large  areas of paved and impervious surfaces including roads and concrete. Large amounts of run off can enter storm sewer systems that eventually end up in rivers, lakes and other water catchment areas. Lawns however, are a fantastic ground cover. They are able to prevent soil erosion and increase overall water filtration into soils.

 

3/ Improve Soil Quality

Over time, a lawn produces substantial organic matter. This may have happened through mowing or even seasonal die off factors. As a result the organic matter adds important and vital nutrients to the soil, helping compacted soils, improving structure and assisting microbial activity.

 

4/ Temperature Reduction

Trees, shrubs and lawn areas can reduce the temperature around your home directly by shading and indirectly through evapotranspiration.  Even better, the result could mean a cut in power costs by using your air conditioner less.

 

5/ Increase Property Value

There is no doubt that a green and healthy lawn can contribute to increasing the value of a property.   Many real estate agents will tell you that a well landscaped yard is enticing to a prospective buyer.

 

6/ Create Positiveness

Scientific studies have proven that landscaping, which also includes lawns, in and around the home or workplace can create more positiveness in a person. It creates a sense of harmony and coherence, leading to a better sense of well being together with a decreased potential for emotional tension.

 

7/ Fun and Family Entertainment

For many, the greatest benefit of having a green and healthy lawn is the fun and enjoyment they can have with family and friends. Have a kick or throw of the ball with your kids. See the enjoyment on their faces when you roll around with them. Play with the dog or just sit and read peacefully. Entertain  guests, have  a barbecue and appreciate the comments you get from admirers of your well manicured lawn.

 

There are many other benefits for a good lawn care program, but ultimately a well cared for lawn will produce an aesthetically pleasing backdrop to be enjoyed by everybody!

I love my lawn because it adds so much to my life and the life of my kids. Without it my yard would be dusty and unpleasant. Any ideas on how to improve areas that are a little thin and patchy?
Cheers

Hi Daniel,

Thanks for your positive feedback. Yes lawns are a great place for families and children to enjoy. A regular Lawn Care Program will definately help keep your lawn greener and healthier. Small brown or dead ares can usually be repaired. The method will differ somewhat depending on the lawn type you have. Let me know the variety and we can investigate further.
Alternatively, navigate to the Lawn Problems tab for further reference.

I have used your product, WEED & FEED on my lawn, it does not seem to have any effect. I have tried putting my finger over hole marked “C” and the product does not seem to decrease in quantity in the container. I have tried to spray without any obstruction at all, and the same volume in the container still exists. I carried out this application three weeks ago and no weeds have died at all. WHAT AM I DOING WRONG? Could you help with this problem please. Both the other holes are open.

Hi Thomas,

We provide a Weed and Feed service as opposed to the Weed and Feed product in a container that you have purchased. Not sure what you have done wrong but if you like you can call me personally to discuss any lawn issues. I can even offer a free lawn inspection should you choose. Looking forward to helping you, my direct number is 0438610027

Cheers
Alex
