Grass is Cool

Grass is a whole lot cooler than asphalt, concrete or even dirt. Lush grass in your lawn is a luxury to walk through and cool off your feet in the summer.

It Draws the Family Outdoors

When your lawn looks great, family members are drawn outside for fun and food. It is no fun having a barbecue outdoors if your lawn looks bad. A well-landscaped lawn is a lawn that family members use on a regular basis.

Help the Environment
