Something to consider when looking at a customer’s budget, be it a commercial project like a park or a homeowner looking for the perfect lawn, think more turf! In a world where too many schools and new homes are surfaced with concrete all green space becomes important. Studies have shown that the use of concrete is more expensive, both short and long term as well as less beneficial to our health. More recent studies conducted in the U.S and Australia have focused on the benefits derived from turfgrass and parks on such things as mental health, general well being and crime.
Something else to think of when looking at turf is that on average a green lawn in the middle of summer is 10 degrees centigrade less than bare soil, 20 degrees less than concrete, asphalt or pebble mulch and 40 degrees less than artificial turf. Natural turf also provides your home with a natural barrier to brushfires, in addition, reduces noise, promotes erosion control, and improves not only your health but your home value as well, sometimes as much as 16%. Natural turf is just that, natural, and as such helps to reduce greenhouse gases as well.
