Reasons for having healthy lawns

 

posted by Focused on July 26, 2009 @ 6:31 pm in ENVIRONMENT

 

 

          Apart from beautifying both public and private properties, a well-maintained lawn has many other benefits. Here are some of them:

 

  • Lawns create a relaxing atmosphere, they have a powerful effect on people in terms of creating feelings of serenity.
  • Lawns have a cooling effect on their surroundings. The front lawns of a eight-house block have the cooling effect of 70 tons of air conditioning.

 

  • Studies have shown that the recovery rates of hospitalized patients are quicker when their rooms have a view of a landscaped area than when they have non-landscaped views.

 

  • Lawns increase real estate market value.

 

  • Lawns absorb dust from the air. It is estimated that grass surfaces around the world trap approximately 12 million tons of dust and dirt from the air every year.

 

  • Grass is an efficient carbon dioxide converter. a 50 feetx50 feet area of grass generates enough oxygen to satisfy the needs of a family of four.
