A beautiful, lush, dense lawn has many great advantages. A home with an inviting lawn will welcome you and all of your guests. Here are a few advantages of a well maintained lawn.
Grass Cools Down Your Property
When the heat is on in the summer, grass keeps you cool. Front lawns of just 8 average houses have the same cooling effect as about 70 tons of air conditioning, while the average home-size central air unit has only a 3 – 4 ton capacity. On top of that grass acts as a noise reducer as it effectively absorbs and deflects sound. When combining a beautiful lush lawn with trees, shrubs and other landscaping a lawn can significantly reduce hard unwanted noise.
Enhances the Whole Neighborhood
Lawns can contribute to your sense of well-being. Most people say that the best place to relax is in their own backyard. A green, attractive landscape design goes much further than just relaxation and recreation. For example when the city installs landscaping and grass parks to enhance the area, people start taking pride in their surroundings and raise the bar of their own property maintenance. As well as, when I have a neighbor with a well-kept lawn, it encourages the rest of the neighbors to do a better job and in return the whole neighborhood benefits.
Easier to Sell Your Home
An attractive landscape can make or break a home sale. Landscaping can add tens of thousands of dollars to the value of your property. In fact, it is one of the few home improvements you can make that not only adds value immediately, but also increases in value as the years go by; while interior decor and design concepts regularly go out of style and mechanical systems wear out, plants grow fuller and more robust as the years go by. The home’s value is added at an advantage ranged from 5.5 percent to 12.7 percent. That translates into an extra $16,500 to $38,100 in value on a $300,000 home. A beautiful landscape design and healthy lawn is a good indication that they’ve taken care of the inside of the house as well and that the home is worth a premium price.
Grass Is A Pollution Fighter!
In one year the blades and roots of grass in an acre of healthy grass absorbs hundreds of pounds of pollutants from the air and rainfall. Among them are sulfur dioxide, nitrogen oxide, hydrogen, fluoride, nitrates and other gases blamed for acid rain and the greenhouse effect.
Grass Produces Oxygen
Grass plants remove co2 from the air and produce o2 in return. Just 625 square feet of grass supplies all the oxygen a person needs for one day. A 5000 square foot lawn produces enough oxygen for 8 people each day. In comparison, it takes two 100-foot trees to provide the same amount of oxygen for 8 people.
Grass Saves Soil!
A green lush lawn stabilizes the soil against water and wind. Lawns prevent runoff and erosion of our valuable topsoil, keeping additional phosphorus from entering our streams and rivers. A healthy lawn also traps much of the estimated 12 million tons of dust and dirt released into the US atmosphere annually.
Grass Has Better Rain Absorption
Healthy, dense lawns absorb rainfall 6 times more effectively than a wheat field, four times better than a hay field, and prevent runoff and erosion of our precious topsoil, keeping additional phosphorus from entering our streams and rivers. A healthy lawn also traps much of the estimated 12 million tons of dust and dirt released into the US atmosphere annually.
Grass is Mother Nature’s Carpet
Nature surrounds us, make yours stunning! Grass is used for recreation from family picnics to soccer to football to any other sport played on grass, grass is essential. It acts as a pad to reduce injuries that might have happened. A dense lawn is a far safer playground and playing field than nearly any other surface.
Hospitalized Patients Have A Faster Recovery
When the patient’s room viewed a beautiful landscaped area compared to patients with non-landscaped views a faster recovery has been observed in hospitals.
Grass Helps Fight Wildfires
With the weather heating up, wildfires are more prone to spreading. Help protect yourself with a lush green lawn. Grass is known to have a low fuel value which can actually help act as a buffer around your property in case of fire hazards.
Dry patches in your lawn are stressful for both you and your lawn. They can be frustrating to deal with. Have you ever wondered how to fix the dead spots? The good news is that most lawns can make a full recovery with the proper care. The most common problem for dried out grass is due to inadequate water, fertilizer burn or dog urine. It is important to determine what caused the damage to your lawn. When your grass needs water it may dry out in irregular patches, or the drying may spread over the entire lawn. Dry grass caused by dog urine typically occurs in small patches, while fertilizer burn can occur over a large area.

Broken Sprinkler System
Most of the time, lawn sprinklers are broken and you don’t see them because it runs at night. Broken sprinklers, according to the USU Extension Office, are the biggest waste of water in the U.S. and main cause of dry spots.
To find out if your sprinklers are set for the proper runtime, you can put an empty tuna can or rain gauge and leave it on the dry spot and let it collect water to see if the spot is getting enough water. It should contain ¾ of an inch in the tuna can with one cycle.
How To Water With A Sprinkler System
When watering your lawn the goal is to get the water deep in the soil. The deeper you get the water into the soil the hardier and healthier your lawn will become. To achieve deep watering, set your timer for about three days per week and run your zones (stations) for a longer period of time. You may have to water longer per zone depending on the position of the sun, the soil type, and the sprinkler type.
When to Water
DO NOT WATER AT WHEN THE SUN IS AT ITS HIGHEST POINT! Watering at the heat of the day can burn your lawn by creating a magnifying glass effect with the water drops, also evaporation will become very high. The best time to set you timer is at night or early morning such as 4:00 am.
Lawn problem? Here is a list to help you determine what actions should be taken.
Problem: Brown dry spots, not enough water Solution: Check your sprinkler system. Use tools to measure water output. Set water timer and times accordingly to water correctly.
Problem: Brown dry spots. Patches of lawn are dried out. High traffic areas are dried out. Solution: When there are high traffic areas on the lawn the soil can become compacted. Aerate the lawn annually to improve the overall health of your grass. The water will be able to penetrate deeper, resulting in stronger roots and beautiful lush green grass.
Problem: Small dry spots left from dog’s urine. Solution: During high temperatures of 90 degrees and above, pet urine can kill the roots and burn the grass. Dog urine is high in nitrogen and will kill the grass roots. Spraying over the urine with a watering hose minutes after your dog urinates will help dilute the urine. Train your pet to urinate in a designated space away from the main lawn. Planting new seed will help fill in the spots where the roots have completely died out.
Problem: Fertilizer burns, yellow dry stripes or patches of dead grass. Solution: Use a garden hose and sprinkler to soak the burned area. Allow the water to saturate and carry away the excess fertilizer. Rake up and throw away dead grass and soil. Next add a fresh top soil to the area. Plant new grass in the bare areas, and then water sufficiently.
