Benefit Of Grass

Promoting our health by installing a lawn

Garden Lawn

Grass can add such appeal to landscapes and garden areas. Over the years I have worked on many garden projects installing grass and it was amazing to see how those newly install grass transform those areas.

There are so many species of grass that are being us for many different reasons, but one thing that we can agree on is how grass gives such a touch of class.

Many homeowners and business owners install grass for beauty and a more professional look. While it is true that time, money, and effort have to be invested in having a beautiful lawn, it is worth the investment.

Different species of grass require different maintenance practices, I have written an article that explains some of the different grass types and how they should be maintained, just follow this link. Grass-type and their care.

  3. Hi Norman,
    I never knew grass effects peoples state of mind and makes them relaxed. Very interesting. I really love your site and reading about all the fruits and vegetables too. This past summer I didn’t eat as much watermelon as usual because I thought it made you gain weight but here I read it helps you lose weight. Wish I would have read that sooner. I know next summer I will be back to eating watermelon again. It’s my favorite fruit. Thank you for all the valuable information.
    Best of luck to you,

    • Hello Gina it is so good to meet you and thanks a million for those kind words. Watermelons can do wonders and they sure to help keep ones weight under control. As a child growing up watermelons was one of my favorite fruit and I still enjoy them. And as you read grass is so useful in so many ways. Wishing you the best of success and have a good day.

  4. That is really nice to know of the benefits of grass, it’s good to be aware of the practical benefits it has, like it is an air purifier, it helps control soil erosion, keeps dust down and helps provide oxygen.

    One of the first things that I notice when I go and visit any gardens, is how well the grass is maintained. Nice green grass that is mowed and trimmed along its borders complements a beautiful garden so well; it’s just a real pleasure to be in and it’s also very soothing and relaxing.

    It really does wonders for you to visit a lovely garden with nice green grass, so thank you for reminding me of the benefits of it.

    • Hello it is nice to meet you, and yes grass can do such wonders. And the benefits are just awesome, glad that I can help, all the best to you and have a good day.

  5. You know grass is just one thing a lot of people don’t think about. I rented my home for one year and my renters never watered. My yard WAS nice and green and pretty with thick grass. Upon returning, my neighbor was very happy to see me back. There had started a little “gully” between our properties because the grass had died and with the rains, dirt just washed everything away. I had to add dirt back and then add sod. What a difference grass does make!

    • Hello my dare friend it is so good to see you, grass can do such wonders and the benefits are really awesome. I believe that if more persons were educated about the benefits of grass they would have a real appreciation . All the best to you and have a good day.

  6. BENEFIT OF GRASS is a great article. I usually don’t think about grass much except to mow it over and over again. I have a great big mower now so that is not much of a problem anymore.
    I learned some wonderful things about grass. The most impressive are that it calms people. Walking out in the yard is relaxing after a had days work.
    The other thing that I didn’t know was that grass provides oxygen and cools the area.
    A very interesting and helpful website, Thanks Keith

  7. Hello Nrichards,
    I would say that is a nice and a very helpful information about grass. My lawn I admit it is pretty messed up. I had put fertilizer on it hoping that it would stay green, well tell you what, it became brown and bald. Well, don’t get me wrong there still weeds on it , a lot of them. Now I have read your advice here and then I will probably print some of your advice to read it always as I need to. I need to do some work on my lawn definitely. No matter how nice is your house if the front yard looks ugly it brings down the appreciation that people might say. I would take a note about your website and I’m looking forward to use your advice during planting season. Thank you.

    • Hello Cris it so good to meet you and I am sorry to hear about your lawn. A nicely keep lawn can increase property value. I am glad that I could help, all the best to you and please let me know how it goes with your lawn. Have a nice day.

  8. Wow, I never thought that grass was this beneficial. I always thought of it a “nice to have” sort of thing, which makes things look nicer, but I didn’t know it can actually help with clearing the air and make it better, or that it can reduce the amount of dust in the air.

    This actually inspires me to have my on grass patch soon. 🙂

    • Hello it is so good to meet you and I am so happy that I could help, Please keep me inform and let me know how your project goes, all the best to you and have a good day.

  10. Hi Norman,

    Thanks for this interesting blogpost!
    Grass has many more benefits than I thought.

    I’m considering getting a small lawn again. After we moved to where we live now, we used to have a big lawn, and I loved it.

    Thanks again, and hope to read more of your interesting posts!

  11. Hi there my friend,

    Great and highly informative site and yet another great article. I would have never guessed at so many benefits from simply having a nice simple and easy to maintain lawn.

    And if it improves air quality .. well most of us are all for that!
