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.
