Grass is a plant, and like any plant, it takes in carbon dioxide (CO2) and produces oxygen. This is part of the process of photosynthesis, by which plants turn light energy into usable chemical energy.
But just how much oxygen does your garden lawn generate? Well, it depends on the size.
According to The Lawn Institute, a 50ft2 lawn produces enough oxygen on its own to meet the daily oxygen requirements of a family of four.
Keep your lawn healthy to maximise oxygen production!
Your lawn will not generate as much oxygen if you don't look after it properly.
Dry, yellowing grass does not produce oxygen as efficiently as lush green grass. Chlorophyll (the pigment that makes grass green) is an essential part of the photosynthesis process, so if your lawn is turning yellow or brown, it's not producing as much oxygen as it could be.
Lawn diseases can also limit your lawn's ability to take in CO2 and release oxygen.
That's why it's so important to look after your lawn properly! If the grass in your garden isn't looking too healthy right now, call Lawn & Weed Expert on 0800 111 4958 to arrange a FREE lawn survey.
