Cut Your Carbon Footprint!

Cut Your Carbon Footprint with Low Water Grass

A well-established Pearl’s Premium lawn can decrease your carbon footprint in four ways:

  1. Less Chemicals: you can cut your use of carbon-intensive chemicals. A Pearl's Premium lawn only needs an organic fertilizer or composting  to stay green, especially if you leave the clippings. 
  2. Less Watering: you may seldom or never need to pour drinking water on your lawn again. Remember, most lawns are irrigated with the same water we drink - that's energy-intensive filtered, treated, pumped and paid for.
  3. Less Mowing: you only need to use that polluting lawn mower once a month and not weekly, or never if left to go to a three inch high meadow. A typical lawn mower produces as much carbon in an hour as a mid-sized car, fully-loaded, produces in 11 hours of driving!
  4. More Oxygen: your Pearl's Premium lawn, properly maintained, produces dramatically less carbon than the typical American lawn. A university study demonstrated that fescue grass blends like Pearl's Premium, cut 3" high, produce 5,760 times more oxygen than carbon in 24 hours. The same study found that a bluegrass lawn, cut one inch high, produces oxygen and carbon in a 1-to-1 ratio. It's like having your very own carbon sink in your backyard!

Enjoy the ultimate green lawn and do your share to lessen global warming and climate change.
