The Effect of Grass on Trees – September 2019: Part 9

We’re continuing with our series on the effects of grass on trees: Most of us only associate clean air with trees. Grass also cleans our air and is often overlooked.  If you’re looking for guidance on how your lawn might be affecting your trees, please don’t hesitate to ask.

Aesthetic and Other Benefits

It is no secret that mature trees will increase the property values in a neighborhood. Trees provide “beautification, privacy, shade that increases human comfort, wildlife habitat, sense of place and wellbeing that are difficult to price.” Similarly, surveys indicate that a well-maintained lawn adds value to a home. Based on a Gallup survey on behalf of American Gardening Association, “A well-maintained lawn can enhance “curb appeal” adding as much as 15 percent to the value of a home.”

Although grass areas do not provide privacy and shade like trees, they provide the unique benefits of a safe surface for children and athletes to play on, fire protection around the home and a high visibility zone that discourages unwanted intruders and vandals.
