The Importance of Economic Impact of Lawns and Landscaping

Our lawn and land is an asset in life and the United States is becoming a much greener place. Many more people need to realize the impact and importance of maintain our lawns. Maintaining the grass of our yards can help prevent the use of turf grass. Turf grass is grass designed for houses, parks, and a staple to certain sports arenas that requires low-levels of care. Approximately, 40 million home lawns across the United States have low maintenance lawn, which means these lawns are not getting treatment with fertilizers, pesticides, etc. Turf grass does help capture carbon dioxide, other pollutions and saves water but is also a bacterial breeding ground. Blood, skin cells, sweat and other materials can remain on the turf grass because they are not being washed or cleaned as frequently. Among other things, mowing the lawn too short can have a significant impact such as chances for weeds, which can create opportunities for herbicide use, which can generate carbon dioxide and harm the environment. Lawn clipping and length can have a big influence on whether turf grass can help or hurt the environment.
