NATIONAL LAWN CARE MONTH
A HEALTHY YARD BOOSTS ENVIRONMENT, SAVINGS
The Virginia-based Professional Landcare Network, or PLANET, America's nonprofit lawn care and landscape association, celebrates National Lawn Care Month by reminding consumers about the benefits of a healthy lawn.
More than 30 million acres of lawns exist in the United States, removing an estimated 5 percent of the carbon dioxide in the atmosphere, according to the organization.
"A healthy lawn not only adds curb appeal, but provides sound proofing and cooling effects to the home," said PLANET President David Snodgrass.
A well-maintained 50-foot by 50-foot lawn produces enough oxygen for a family of four. Eight healthy front lawns have the cooling effect of 70 tons of air conditioning - enough to cool 16 average homes.
Dense, healthy grass slows down and filters runoff, removing contaminants and trapping soil. Clean, filtered water then returns to the underground water supply.
Turf also provides pollution control by trapping dust and smoke particles from the atmosphere.
The healthier the turf, the thicker the roots, and it's this thick carpet of healthy turf that effectively filters and purifies both air and water.
PLANET offered these lawn-care tips for the April observance:
Clear the lawn of leaves, downed branches, and other debris that have fallen during the winter.
Aerate the lawn if it seems compacted, if moss is growing, or the grass has worn down. Machines can be rented or a professional can provide the service.
Check the lawn's pH balance. Grass likes a well pH-balanced lawn. Many local extension offices provide this service.
TURF COLORANT for warm season grasses
This service is for WARM SEASON GRASSES and is an alternative to over seeding with Rye Grass (Winter Rye).
We apply green turf colorant ("paint") that colors the dormant warm season grass green. The color lasts for approximately 60 days depending on the amount of precipitation we receive.
The reason turf colorant is better than over seeding with Rye Grass (Winter Rye) is because the dormant warm season grass does not have to compete for nutrients with the rye grass.
In addition, with turf painting you do not have to add any fertilizers like you do with rye grass. Since the colored grass absorbs more heat, the grass comes out of dormancy sooner.
Another advantage is that the turf colored grass keeps the soil temps warmer, therefore lessoning the changes of winter kill.
