Turf not only plays a significant role in the beauty and comfort of the Australian landscape but it also has essential environmental benefits.

Turf also has other benefits such as:

* Acting as a dust and water filter, which is very important in today's urban areas.

* Turf is a very efficient form of erosion control, promoting water percolation rather than runoff.

* Turf grass captures and uses greenhouse gases, thereby counteracting climate change, turf also serves as a natural air-conditioner, the difference in temperature and comfort between standing on pavement and turf on a hot day is measurable.

Environmental Benefits such as:

* Increased property value, it is well known that maintained landscapes and turf sell homes quicker and for higher values.

* Turf and green spaces provide therapeutic benefits. Grassy areas such as parks, golf courses, and homes can create feelings of peacefulness.

* Turf grass is also an integral part of enjoying recreational activities, sports such as football, soccer, golf and cricket are all part of a lot of Australian's lifestyles and all require turf grass, helping to absorb physical impact, provide traction and cushioning, and delivers a safer playing surface than bare soil or other artificial surfaces.

Lawn Care Facts
Lawn Fact:
Bowling Greens are watered once a week and mowed twice a day.
They can do this because they water very heavily and deeply, resulting in the lawn sending down very deep roots past the evaporation level, so the lawn always has access to adequate water.
