Maintaining and Managing the Environment
Benefits of a well-maintained healthy lawn and landscape
>Creates a relaxing space of natural beauty. Grassy areas quickly affect people's moods by creating feelings of serenity, privacy, thoughtfulness or happiness. Its yearly cycles of growth and colour changes, lift human spirits and link urban inhabitants with their countryside heritage.
>Front lawns of just eight average houses have the cooling effect of about 70 tons of air conditioning, while the average home-size central air unit has only a 3 - 4 ton capacity.
>Playing fields covered with dense turf have proven safer, as demonstrated by a simple egg drop test. When a dozen raw eggs were dropped from a height of 11' onto a 2" thick piece of dense turf, none broke; two thirds broke on thin turf from that height, and from just 18", all broke on an all-weather track!
