Some Handy Turf Facts

Did You Know This About Lawn Turf?

  • A square metre of turf contains 150,000-200,000 blades of grass.
  • Grass is the third most important source of Oxygen behind trees and algae.
  • An acre of turf produces more Oxygen than an acre of Rain Forest.
  • An area of turf that is 50 feet x 50 feet can produce enough O2 for a family of four an acre and the turf can produce enough O2 for 64 people per day.
  • An acre of turf can absorb hundreds of pounds of fossil fuel air pollutants.
  • Turf helps purify water entering the ground because the root mass and microbes act as filters and capture and breakdown many pollutants.
  • Turf absorbs noise.
  • Turf prevents soil erosion.
  • Turf has a cooling effect – the temperature over a turfed surface on a hot summer’s day will be 10-14 degrees cooler than over concrete or tarmac – beats air-conditioning!
  • The net carbon intake of a well managed lawn is 5-7 times higher than the carbon output of mowing it.

FRESH TURF

The biggest problem with turf is managing to transplant it from the field to your garden and keep it in perfect condition.

During the winter months this is easy and the turf will last three or four days no problem at all. However, during late spring and summer the shelf life can be as little as 36 Hours.
