Benefits Of Having A Well Maintained Lawn

Author : Ryan Wolfe


Few surroundings can bring as much joy to the soul and relaxation to the body as a personal, well maintained lawn. Where bustling urban life brings constant sirens and horns, a lawn is the quiet oasis where one can escape to the deep countryside. Vibrant grass, bursting with creativity and life, can bring healing to the sick and happiness to those in despair. Lawn maintenance can make a world of difference in a home. There are several benefits of having a well maintained lawn.

Some of the most appealing aspects of a neighborhood are all the beautiful lawns that adorn homes. Grassy areas serve as an aphrodisiac bringing serenity and comfort. Flowers full of bloom and color draw natural light to home while showcasing the interior and exterior of a home. If trying to sell a home, nice landscaping can draw in potential buyers and increase the property value as well. Curb appeal matters. Everyone dreams of having a lawn that impresses those who pass and that the neighbors envy.

There are more benefits that a well maintained lawn can bring than just an improved appearance. After yard maintenance, an area draws the mind to dream of backyard barbeques, games with the kids, and outdoor summer parties. A grassy lawn can provide a safe area where kids can play at free will and you don't have to be concerned with the normal detrimental factors that a public park might have. Grass can reduce the shock of a fall and provide a cushion. More leisure time with family and friends is a huge benefit of having a well maintained lawn. Even in the sweltering summer heat a lawn can serve as a stage for entertainment. A yard is much cooler than concrete or asphalt and could make an area more than 14 degrees cooler.

If the receipt for an annual landscaping visit is becoming bigger than your wallet, keeping it well maintained throughout the year could save money. Soil can become unhealthy quickly if the grass is not kept at the proper height and the roots are not receiving the proper nutrients. If the soil does become damaged and is not given what it needs then it will bring havoc to turf and plants. With regular lawn maintenance, the pH of the soil can be checked and attended to. By keeping plants healthy and trimmed neatly will also save time and money in the long run.

A well maintained lawn is also smart for the environment by providing natural resources to the ecosystem. Healthy, dense lawns absorbs water much more efficiently than bare soil or hay and prevents run off and erosion of the imperative top soil. It also traps millions of dust and dirt particles that escape into the US atmosphere annually, penetrating our lungs and antagonizing our allergies. Lawns also serve as a water purifier before entering underground aquifers, capturing and breaking down pollutants by use of the microbes found in soil.
