Beautiful lawns the sustainable way: Some say that it must be impossible to have a lawn that is both good to look at and good for the environment. This is simply a myth that needs busting once and for all!
The Lawn Association team know that lawn care should be taken seriously as its vital to our living environment and more importantly, to our planet. The team believe in the ethical and organic promotion of grass as an integral part of our living landscape and will never support practices or products that damage or destroy our natural habitats and our environment.
Today, due to excellent modern technology, more and more mowers are produced which are powered by lithium batteries. Lawn feed has come on in leaps and bounds too, a new lawn feed that will be launched soon through the Lawn Association is made from re-constituted food waste and into plant food and soil conditioner for your grass and soils. It’s the ultimate in green gardening – and your lawn will love it!
We must not forget the benefits to us from lavishing love on our lawns either, lawn care is beneficial for our mental health, with scientific research pinpointing several reasons why it reduces stress. The first key reason is simply being outdoors. Secondly, the exercise involved in mowing a lawn is not only great for our physical health but can also boost our mood. This also has an element of mindfulness, of being in the moment. And finally, the act of nurturing our lawns and seeing them flourish, give us a feeling of positivity.
To say that we cannot have stunning lawns produced in a sustainable way is simply not true and risk whisking away one of the greatest pleasures we will have in the coming seasons. This is a myth constantly pushed by some. Our countryside is green and certainly, grass and Britain’s lawns are green. If you don’t think so then well be happy to talk.
