Why Turf

  • Lawns are a lot more than just grass but an interaction between the natural environment and the constructed urban and suburban space.

In many suburban areas, there are bylaws in place requiring houses to have lawns and require the proper maintenance of these lawns.

For some people lawns are the link between the inside and the outside- they are the lungs of your property, filtering out the bad air and recycling it for you around the clock.

Lawns also have a cooling affect – during our summer heat, grass can be up to 30°C cooler than artificial grass and 14°C cooler than bare soil.

But it doesn’t stop there – the average front lawn has double the cooling capacity of air conditioning with no toll on your electricity bill!

The cooling effect of lawn is also greater than trees and is on par with open bodies of water.

A healthy lawn also absorbs airborne pollutants and acts as a barrier between harmful substances and waterways. Just 200 square metres of lawn easily supplies enough oxygen for a family of four.

Lawn also reduces noise by absorbing sound especially in urban areas.

Based on the research by neuroscientists at the University of Queensland, the scent of freshly cut lawn may act as stress relievers – so get out the lawn mower as a de-stresser for better mental health!

Admit it. When you spy an expanse of lush lawn, you want to walk, run or lie down on it. Lawns have that effect because green spaces improve your physical and mental health – and quality of life in general – as years of research prove.

Maintaining a lawn is also a great way to stay fit. Caring for the lawn burns more calories per hour versus other household activities. For a 80 kilogram person 60 minutes of raking burns 351 calories verses 60 minutes of weight lifting which burns 254 calories

And … a National Survey of Real Estate Agents found that “ … a nicely presented lawn can boost your home value by up to 18%”.
