It is in our nature to be drawn to lush green lands. Even ancient man instinctively knew that green, lush areas were fertile, and man could flourish there. If the land could sustain abundant plant life, it could provide fruits, vegetables, honey, wild game and shelter. If you have noticed, lush green regions have plenty of water.
We are still drawn to lush green lands, associating them with good health, abundance, and comfort. They are inviting, welcoming, making you want to slow down and enjoy the beauty of nature.
Curb appeal translates to better living. Trees, plants, shrubs, ground cover, and most of all turf are biological filters around your home. Trees help break strong winds, intercept driving rains, and filter the air. Shrubs do the same on a smaller scale, being shorter versions of the tree. Turf, or your grass is the supreme filter around your home. It enzymatically digests (often called composting) dust, pollution, animal waste, pollen, and minerals into plant food soaked up by the roots of all plants. A recent study by the Florida Department of Environmental Protection revealed that whatever lands on a lawn, stays on the lawn and is composted, recycled and reused by all plants. All that remains is water and carbon dioxide.
Curb appeal is a call to your primitive sense of survival and is good for all of us, especially the environment.
