Properly established and maintained lawns are a life-time investment, adding to the value of the property, its safe, clean and enjoyable use and even a benefit to the environment as the tightly inter-woven plants of a mature lawn clean the air by releasing oxygen as it uses carbon dioxide, traps participate pollution and cleanses runoff water that helps restore our groundwater supplies.
Making the wrong decisions when a lawn is established will cost time, energy, money and natural resources.
