Cool things to know
Among conservationists, lawn care matters because certain techniques can cancel out some of greenery's environmental benefits. Among other things, turfgrass helps captures carbon and other pollutants.
For lawns that receive low-level care, the average carbon sequestration rate is lower than those maintained by "lawn care service or apply fertilizer multiple times a year," the industry's idea of best management practices. In return, a healthy and established turf stance will aid in controlling water runoff as it acts as a filter preventing contaminates from leaching into our precious ground water.
