Helping the environment has got to be a priority. With a report out recently urging companies, governments and individuals to change before the world reaches the point of no return, it’s now more important than ever for each individual to do their part to help the environment. Keeping your lawn healthy is a fantastic way to start.
Lawns made from natural grass not only look fantastic, but are sustainable and contribute to the health of the environment.
Why is a Healthy Lawn Good for the Environment?
The Current Situation
One of the key problems our world is facing is the rise in CO2, which is causing damage to our ozone layer and increasing the temperature of the world. The temperature of the planet has already increased by 1 degree, but if we can keep it from increasing by another 0.5 degrees by the end of the century, we can keep the planet from widespread disaster.
We’re currently on track to exceed this by 2030.
This will lead to the poorest parts of the world (those that have little power to change global warming) facing floods, drought, famine and an increase in serious and extreme weather conditions, such as hurricanes. Lives will be lost. It will cause species to become extinct, impact the food we can grow and eat in Western society, and lead to entire cities being flooded.
This seems like a big task, but every individual can help through simple steps. This includes eating less meat, walking when you can, using a washing line rather than a tumble dryer and even things as simple as keeping your lawn healthy.
Your Lawn Makes a Difference
Keep Your Lawn Healthy
Overseeding helps to fill out your lawn. New seeds are sown to repair damaged areas and fill in any patches. It ensures that your lawn as a whole stays as thick and as healthy as possible. It’s done alongside aeration or scarification to make sure all the treatments have maximum effect.
Environmentally Friendly Lawn Care
If you want to help the environment, there are so many steps to take as an individual – so why not start with your lawn. Every individual can make a difference to change our planet for the better.
