Lawn being trimmedSeeing green lawns always brings that aesthetic appeal. It is serene. It is relaxing. Especially by mid-April when spring arrives, after a long cold and gloomy winter, the lilac blossoms emerge with new grass.

Nature follows the seasons, but turfgrass still needs proper management and maintenance to stay healthy. Grass weakens and eventually dies if undernourished, after all. That is why lawn fertilization is important. In Salt Lake City, lawn fertilization is a constant in nearly every residential community one can find because of its various benefits. These include:

Increases property values

Lawns are an asset to homes as they increase property values. Research has found that home market values increase to as much as 15% if a home has a well-maintained lawn. They serve as an environmental add-on to homes of all types.

Conditions the air

Lawns possess a cooling capacity that is typical of an air conditioner. This is true for urban and suburban homes where heat produced by buildings, cars, and people (i.e., urban heat island) adds to the natural heat from the sun.

Cleans the air from pollutants

Lawns clean the air from dust particles and other air pollutants. Healthy turf can generate enough oxygen that can improve air quality. Serving as a natural filter for the environment, air contaminants, and even noise, are reduced.

Reduces water runoff and controls erosion

Lawns can reduce water runoff during heavy rains and also provide excellent soil erosion control. By improving recharge as well as quality protection of groundwater, flooding is minimized.

Provides a safer place to play and socialize

Lawns provide a safe place for children to play, giving that soft cushion, and a blanket for family and other social activities. Lawns enhance the quality of life by contributing to social and communal harmony.

Well-kept lawns are an advantage to any property owner. To make sure it stays healthy, the services of a professional are needed.
