Benefits of Healthy Grass & Landscaping Plantings

Watering sod properly

Many people think the summer months mean water frequently – but the way you water is more important than the frequency with which you water. Grass and plants are resilient and have mechanisms that help them deal with summer heat. For instance, grass may go dormant and look brown during times of drought, but, if it is well cared for, it may return to normal when there is adequate moisture.


Efficient tips for watering include:

  • Water your plants less often, but deeply.
  • Water in the early morning or evening hours so the sun and heat don’t steal moisture from your plants. Ideally, grass should get at least one inch of water per week.
  • Use drip irrigation instead of sprinklers and hoses. Drip irrigation waters plants slowly so the water doesn’t run off or evaporate.

Healthy Grass Cleans the Air: Grass makes our environment greener in many ways. One of the most important is the job it does as an air filter, trapping dirt and removing smoke and other air pollutants to improve air quality and minimize the negative health impact from smog and dust.

Grass is an effective dust trap: If you’ve ever walked through a construction site or a similar dry, unplanted area on a windy day, you have some idea of what life might be like without grass. Clouds of windblown dust make for difficult breathing, irritated eyes, and reduced visibility. But grass helps trap dirt and dust. In fact, every year grass traps millions of tons of dirt and dust that would otherwise be blowing around unhindered.

Air Pollution Remover: Air pollutants such as carbon dioxide and sulfur dioxide continue to be a major concern worldwide. Maintaining a healthy lawn will help remove some of these contaminants from the atmosphere.
