"Fun Facts About Lawn Care

  • There are approximately 50 million acres of grass in the United States. Approximately 21 million of those acres are in our front and back yards.

 

  • The average lawn size for a home is 1/5 of an acre.

 

  • Did you know? Lawns are very efficient oxygen producers. They are about three times more effective than trees. And, their season to produce oxygen is much longer. Even a smaller sized lawn (50 ft. x 50 ft.) releases enough oxygen daily  to meet the needs of a family of four for 24 hours and absorbs carbon dioxide, ozone, hydrogen fluoride and other toxins."
