Primary roles of turfgrass include soil stabilization, water conservation, and filtration of air and water borne pollutants.

Growing turf is highly effective in controlling environmental pollution by suppressing dust, glare and noise while dissipating heat in arid and semi-arid regions.

Turfgrass sod in urban areas and communities aids in the reduction of carbon dioxide emissions and reduces energy consumption

2,500 square feet of lawn absorb carbon dioxide from the atmosphere, release enough oxygen for a family of four to breathe.
On a hot summer day, lawns will be 30 degrees cooler than asphalt or rock and 14 degrees cooler than bare soil.
Turfgrass acts as a natural filter, reducing pollution by purifying the water passing through its root zone.
