A lot of folks are reducing - or even eliminating - lawns from their landscape these days. But, before ripping it all out, one thing to keep in mind is a healthy lawn does help to keep yard temperatures cooler.
Lawn can offset about 50% of the sun's heat through cooling evaporation. When it’s sunny, air temps are 10-14° Fahrenheit cooler than on asphalt or concrete and, artificial turf temperatures can be even higher. Maintaining a healthy lawn can impact your energy bill as it will help to reduce your home's cooling needs.
With the drought that we’ve been experiencing, and water prices sky-high, it is understandable to desire a yard you don’t have to water. The good news is, that by creating a strong root system with healthy soil, your lawn can still look great with far less water than you might think.
