If you’re a homeowner who has a lawn or yard, you might find yourself wondering why lawn care is needed. One simple aspect of lawn and lawn maintenance is grass. The grass is so ubiquitous around us that we can frequently easily forget all the plentiful and diverse benefits that grass and lawns bring to our environment, thus demonstrating the importance of lawn care and maintenance.
A sustainable lawn not only makes your surroundings and your home look better, but it also benefits the environment. Did you know that a simple lawn of just under 80 x 80 feet can supply enough oxygen to a family of four? The oxygen produced improves and balances the quality of the air while absorbing different air pollutants to combat pollution – the grass is a healthy way to purify the air around you. Proper landscaping will and can protect against erosion and have better water retention than numerous crop fields. Not to mention that you apparently would not even realize that grass decreases noise in neighborhoods and gives kids a great place to play.
So, you get a picture that lawns are important, definitely more important than what we’ve ever known. Which means that taking care of your lawn so that it could do all the things it needs is so crucial, some of the different aspects of lawn care that are important to keep up with and do regularly include fertilization, watering, weed control, mowing, aeration, and fixing bare spots. Fertilizing your lawn if feeding it, watering the lawn will also provide it with good nutrients.
Weed control is an ongoing year-to-year task that will help your lawn thrive without any competition for water and nutrients. Fixing bare spots is also something that needs to be addressed every year, the biggest causes of bare spots are snow, salt, pets, and rodents. Be sure to keep up with re-seeding and maintaining your lawn as required. Aerating the lawn once or twice a season can help your grass get water better, improve drainage, and encourage healthy root growth!
Not only does proper lawn care make a good contribution to the environment, but having a stunning and well cared for lawn tends to increase the appeal and helps your friends and family appreciate your home even more. A beautiful lawn significantly contributes to the beauty of your home and community.
