Additional Information On Lawn Management
Air Quality and Lawns
“Just one acre of grass can absorb hundreds of pounds of fossil-fuel created sulfur dioxide in a single year.” according to the Maryland Agricultural Statistics Service.
Oxygen generation by turf-grasses has a major impact in making our environment habitable. A 50’x 50′ lawn produces enough oxygen for a family of four.
Environmental Benefits of Lawns
Dr. Eliot Roberts and Beverly Roberts studied and reported on their findings in reference to the environmental benefits of lawns in 1989. Climate is controlled at ground level by turf-grasses as they cool temperatures appreciably, thus working as exterior “air conditioners.” Dust and smoke particles from the atmosphere are trapped by turf which helps keep the air cleaner. Noise is absorbed by grass areas which cut down on excessive sound, a growing problem in urban areas. For example, grassed slopes beside lowered expressways reduce noise 8-10 decibels. Pollutants, such as carbon dioxide and sulfur dioxide, are absorbed by turf-grasses thereby rendering the air fit to breathe.
Temperature Modification By Lawns
Lawns play an important part in controlling our climate. Grassed surfaces reduce temperature extremes by absorbing the sun’s heat during the day and releasing it slowly in the evening, thus moderating temperature. Grass plants absorb some solar radiation to fuel the photosynthesis process. The irregular surface of lawn areas also scatters light and radiation, greatly reducing glare.
Lawns cool themselves and their surroundings by the evapotranspiration process. Each grass blade acts as an evaporative cooler. An acre of turf on a summer day will lose about 2,400 gallons of water through evaporation and transpiration to the atmosphere. Roughly 50% of the sun’s heat striking the turf may be eliminated through this transpirational cooling process.
The cooling properties of turf are so effective that temperatures over turfed surfaces on a sunny summer day will be 10 – 14 degrees cooler than over concrete or asphalt. Or to put it another way, consider the fact that on a block of eight average homes, the front lawns have the cooling effect of 70 tons of air conditioning!
