In this busy day in age, it’s quite easy to neglect your lawn. We get it, you’re busy and you have plenty of other obligations to take up your time that you’d probably enjoy more than lawn care anyway. However, each day that you neglect your lawn is more damage done. And we aren’t even just talking about mowing – it’s also the watering, pruning, trimming, fertilizing, and weeding. But does it even matter? Today on the blog, your friends at Nature’s Select™ Premium Turf Services, Inc. are discussing the harm caused by not caring for your lawn.

What's the Harm in Not Caring for Your Lawn?

Lowers Your Property Value and Curb Appeal

Whether you’re planning to sell your home in the near future or not, the appearance of your property is greatly influenced by the condition of your lawn. A well-kept lawn makes a good first impression and a prospective buyer will notice if your lawn is uneven and brown. Because it enhances a buyer’s perception of the health and beauty of your property, lush, green grass may help your home sell for quite a bit more money. It also suggests that you take great pride in your house and maintain the inside as well.

Health and Safety Risks

Believe it or not, your children and pets are at risk if your grass isn’t kept up. From divots that can twist an ankle to brown patches that can rapidly turn muddy in the summer rain, a poorly-kept lawn means your family doesn’t have a safe environment to play. Additionally, if water pools, the stagnant water draws mosquitoes, which can spread disease. The kids will be home for the summer soon and you’ll be planning backyard BBQs, so make it a beautiful and secure place for people to gather.

Harmful to the Environment

Finally, maintaining your lawn is beneficial to the environment. This is due to the fact that your lawn serves as a kind of natural filtration system as it filters out dust and dirt from the air. Additionally, your lawn filters water, which benefits the well-being of your area. You may even lessen greenhouse gases, which contribute to global warming, by surrounding yourself with lush, green grass.
