Posted on 31 July, 2017 in Lawn Growing More Green: The Surprising Benefits of Having a Lush Lawn

For the average person, growing a lawn in Australia is probably the last thing on their to-do list. Between making time to family, friends, work and kids, most people just do not have the time to worry about maintaining a lush, green yard. The work that goes into growing and maintaining a lush yard can be both time consuming and expensive. It can truly seem like just another hassle, taking up more time that you don't even have to begin with; however, growing and maintaining a lush, green lawn does not have to be such a pain.

Although it is important to consider dry and wet season lawn care, there are many benefits from investing in your yard. Simple tools, such as an irrigation system, can save you an abundance of time, money and hassles.

So, if you have been putting off vamping up your yard, think again - it might be time to start growing a lawn in Australia.

Here are some great environmental and health benefits that a lush, green yard offers:

  • A filter for urban noise pollution. The grass and the ground underneath will help absorb some of the sounds made from urban living, giving you a quieter living space.
  • A natural air filter. Lush grass will help trap dust and smoke particles in the air, providing cleaner breathing air for you and your family.
  • Improving the quality of your air. By the process of photosynthesis, a lush yard aids in removing carbon dioxide from the air and creating oxygen.
  • A safe place for your family to play. Natural, lush grass is not only safe, but it is calming. The cool, soft touch of grass provides a comfortable and safe place for you and your family to play outside.

Now that you are considering the idea of investing in your lawn, you probably are looking for some tips on how to get started and how to maintain your precious grass. Here are some effective lawn care tips:

  • Mow your yard down to the optimal growing height. This is an easy step - you are already mowing your yard anyways, the only thing you will change is the height that you mow it down to. Find out what grass height works best for the type of grass in your area and use that as a guide.

Keep your yard watered. This tip might sound a little more difficult. It takes time and it is just another thing to check off your list. You might not even know how much water your grass needs, and that is what an irrigation system is for. The perfect irrigation system will take care of watering your yard for you and get the job done right.

  • Optimize the growing conditions of your grass. During the dry season, keeping a nice, lush yard can be a real task. It is hot, there isn't much water to be had, and the grass just can't handle it. One way to help your grass stay lush during the dry months is to optimize the other great growing periods throughout the year. Maintaining your yard properly during the other times of the year will make it easier to maintain during the dry season.

Keeping a lush, green yard can be hard without the right knowledge and the right tools. If you are looking to get started, or just need some help, please feel free to reach out to a professional service.. They can save you time and money, and have just the expertise you are looking for to make your grass grow.
