Healthy sod builds healthy soil.

Healthy grass coverage builds up the health of the topsoil through the decay of grass clippings and its root system. Providing oxygen, better access to water and organics for the inhabitants, like earthworms and microbes because the soil around a healthy grass root system will hold more nutrients and moisture.

Sod cleans our air.

Grass catches many airborne pollutants like carbon dioxide, sulfur dioxide and smog, largely with the action of the wind and rain- making the air we all breathe a little cleaner today and for generations to come.

Sod produces more oxygen than trees.
