3 Reasons Why Sod Is Great For the Environment

Slide 2:

There is an idea going around today that grass is an enemy because it uses water. However, so does every other plant and tree on the planet. Grass actually performs vital tasks that contribute to a healthy atmosphere. Here are three reasons why sod is great for the environment. 1. Sod purifies water. The roots of grass are effective filters. They work in conjunction with soil biology to break down various contaminants that make their way into runoff water.

Slide 3:

2. Sod reduces greenhouse gases. Grass reduces generally harmful so-called “greenhouse gases” by absorbing them and converting them into life-sustaining oxygen. Sod is much more efficient at reducing the level of potentially harmful gases than native plants because grass naturally has a higher leaf density and grows much faster. 3. Sod is a natural air conditioner.

Slide 4:

Grass reduces ground surface temperatures through a process called evapotranspiration , similar to the way so-called swamp coolers were used to cool homes. On a blazing hot summer afternoon, a grass lawn will average up to 30 degrees cooler than asphalt, 14 degrees cooler than bare soil and 35 degrees cooler than artificial turf. Therefore, grass can help you save on energy costs by reducing the ambient temperature of your house.
