You Don’t Want To Miss Out On These Benefits of Natural Turf
What is one of the best parks in Pompano Beach? The answer is Pompano Beach Park. The park has a super clean beach; quality parking and quiet places to meditate helping you release the pressures of everyday life. You can also get to enjoy sunsets from here with your lover next to you.
But if you can’t get there, you can also create a haven at home right in your yard. All you need are some healthy plants and some quality sod. And when you think of a green area, there’s artificial turf and natural turf. Here’s why you should get natural sod.
It’s a natural cooling agent
Natural grass will need to be watered and the water seeps into the ground. Watering the ground will naturally make it cooler especially on hot days. On the other hand, artificial turf doesn’t have any cooling effect, and in fact, it may even burn your feet. It’s polythene remember?
Another benefit that everyone enjoys, usually without notice, is turfgrass’ tremendous cooling effect.
On a hot summer day, lawns will be 30 degrees cooler than asphalt and 14 degrees cooler than bare soil.
The front lawns of eight houses have the cooling effect of about 70 tons of air conditioning. That’s amazing when the average home has an air conditioner with just a three or four ton capacity.
The cooling effect of irrigated turf reduces the amount of fuel that must be burned to provide the electricity which powers the air conditioners. Read more from Lavery Sod Farm…
Natural grass is self-cleaning and self-healing
Natural grass is planted on soil and anything that gets on the grass will get into the ground. Therefore on a ground where your children might pour soda or you yourself pour any drink, you don’t have to worry about cleaning. The grass does this for you automatically. Also no matter the foot traffic, the ground is like a sponge and will still self-repair.
Natural turf grass is also self-cleaning. If you spill some sauce from your BBQ or your dog drools all over the grass, you don’t have to worry about coming back to clean it up later. A healthy lawn will simply absorb it all over time.
Not only are grass lawns self-cleaning, but they’re also self-repairing.
A natural lawn will be able to remain healthy despite foot traffic and when they have been particularly damaged, a little bit of TLC will encourage a natural grass lawn to fully recover. Read more from Buy Turf Online…
Cleans up the air
Many will argue that natural grass consumes a lot of water and is thus harmful to the environment. But they tend to forget that natural grass takes in carbon dioxide and releases oxygen into the environment. Considering human carbon emissions, you might want to keep the grass in your yard.
Natural grass allows you to breathe fresh air that is free from dust. Natural grass offers a positive impact on the environment. After all, a healthy environment is important for our quality of life and health. Natural grass is good for our environment because it is a living organism. Real grass contributes to the ecosystem by providing oxygen, filtering pollution, and absorbing heat.
It captures carbon dioxide from the air and converts it to a stable carbon dioxide form by a process called carbon sequestration. This process prevents carbon dioxide from being released into the atmosphere, thereby increasing the emissions of greenhouse gases. Read more from Fix It Design…
