Our turf/ or Green grass areas are incredible natural oxygen making machines. A turf/ or green grass area 50’m3 x 50’m3 produces enough oxygen to meet the everyday needs of a family of four. Each acre of grass produces enough oxygen for 64 people a day.

Our air is cleansed by Grass and over plants through the process of photosynthesis. Green grass take in carbon dioxide and water and use the energy from sunlight in photosynthesis, which produces carbohydrates for the plant to live off and release the very air we breathe “pure oxygen”

Biodiversity is our key resource and support system. It is critical for the functioning of ecosystems which supply us with products and services; oxygen, food, fresh water, and a stable climate to name a few. It helps sustain the human existence and our quality of life.

On a hot, sunny day, grass will absorb an average 462.5 litres of water per 100 square metres thatis some drainage system. One acre of well-managed grass area stores about 417.305 Kilograms of carbon per year.
