Professional lawn care has many great qualities that we have discussed in past blogs, but here are a couple you might not “hear” about very often!
Dense Happy Grass = Less Noise!
A healthy dense lawn has the ability to reduce noise in and around your home. Lawn is similar to the carpet or a rug in your home. A room that has hard wood floors does not absorb near as much noise as a carpeted room. Just like carpet or a rug, lawns will absorb a lot of exterior noise which will make for a more enjoyable neighbor hood. When combining trees, shrubs, and your lawn you can achieve a lot of noise abatement that asphalt, concrete or other hard surfaces would not absorb.
Healthy Maintain Lawns = Less Mosquitoes & Snakes
Another nuisance that lawns can remove from areas around your home are more visible than loud noises. Animals and insects such as snakes, rodents, mosquitoes, ticks and chiggers all prefer to reside in taller grasses. Having a well-maintained lawn will keep these pests away from your home, children, and pets.
It has been said, that one of the reasons lawns became popular was because they created a separation between a home and wooded areas. During initial development this was meant to keep live stock safe from different forest dwelling creatures. Since most of us don’t keep goats in our front yards, we don’t think of lawns in that respect. However, we do use our lawns for recreation, entertainment, and other outside activities where some of these pests are not welcomed.
Keeping your lawn well groomed and healthy will reduce noise and nuisance pests that can carry serious health concerns. More reasons to keep your lawn looking its best, and Weed Pro can help!
