5 Big Benefits to Having a Grassy Yard

Experts say that there are far more than eight benefits to having a grassy yard—including comfort while you’re spending time outdoors—but some of the most important are air quality, pollution filtration, heat, wellness, and community appeal.

Air Quality When You Have a Grassy Yard

Grass is a living organism, and as such, it serves as a vacuum for carbon dioxide. When grass absorbs carbon dioxide, it releases oxygen as a byproduct.

Pollution Filtration

According to the EPA, grass reduces pollution and runoff. Grass roots stabilize the soil to reduce or prevent erosion, and as a side benefit, grass reduces noise pollution.

Heat Prevention

On an ultra-warm day in August, grass can be at least 30 degrees cooler than asphalt can, and 14 degrees cooler than bare soil can. According to the California Energy Commission, the cooling effect of an average-sized lawn is equal to about nine tons of air conditioning (the average home air conditioning unit has a three- to four-ton capacity).


Grassy, green spaces populated with other plants can reduce your blood pressure, improve your attention, and reduce feelings of fear and anger. The University of California at Riverside did a study that showed hospital stays can be reduced when patients have rooms with natural views because they recover faster.

Community Appeal

Green spaces are beautiful—we all know that. A community looks more alive when there’s lush, green grass in the yards. Great landscaping can boost a home’s value, too, and make buyers more apt to visit the inside because they’re impressed with its curb appeal.
