The White House’s Report on Climate Change this last week stated that wildfires, tornadoes, floods, hurricanes, droughts and more extreme weather are here to stay. Here are a few simple solutions that can help people do their share to save the earth while at the same time saving money, time and water. One of the most effective solutions is around the home, it's keeping the grass fresh.
Cities and states across America spend lots of money to respond to natural weather related disasters after the fact; even better some cities like Philadelphia are adopting major steps to lessen "extreme heat events".
The average person who worries that government and corporate response may not be fast enough, and would prefer to do something positive NOW; can take steps to lessen the impact of the extremes.
One simple solution is to save water, money and time by planting Pearl's Premium Ultra Low Maintenance Lawn Seed because it is a grass with very deep roots (12 inch) that requires very low water usage. A grass such as Pearl's Premium can be seeded right over your existing lawn to look like this:
Pearl's Premium is not just a beautiful grass, it requires only 1/3 to 1/4 the water of other grasses and is much more drought tolerant because it grows 12-14 inch deep roots (if it can go deep) and grows very slowly. Pearl's Premium has more surface area on the blades of grass and deeper roots, it can produce up to 5,760 times the oxygen compared to other grasses. It also sequesters up to 2 tons of carbon per acre per year out of the air, to be locked into the soil. That is 4 times the carbon sequestering per year compared to ordinary grasses which have 3-4 inch roots.
Pearl's Premium has a lush deep green color everyone enjoys and it is extremely soft. It grows incredibly slow after being established. It can be cut once every 4-6 weeks for a well-manicured area, as opposed to weekly with most grass; Pearl's can be not cut at all! It can be left to lean over as a No-Mow type grass. If left to lean over, Pearl's Premium is an ultra low maintenance 3-4 inch-tall meadow for back yards and other residential, municipal or commercial applications! The below picture, is Pearl’s Premium grass leaned over in a No-Mow type application without mowing for 2 years:
After creating a less thirsty more sustainable lawn that produces far more oxygen for our air and also sequesters far more beneficial carbon into the earth; there are a lot more things you can do to help the environment. You can recycle more, reduce your heat in the winter and AC in the summer, change as many light bulbs to CFL or LED lights, drive smarter with tires inflated, use public transit when possible, buy more energy efficient products and turn off lights when you leave the room.
Why focus on grass as the easiest and highest impact solution to address climate change? It is both easy to implement just seeding a better grass seed over your existing lawn and there is a heck of a lot of grass out there. NASA expert Dr. Cristina Milesi says there are 32 million acres of grass in the US alone and it is part of the climate change problem, (see: http://earthobservatory.nasa.gov/Features/Lawn/) therefore Pearl's Premium can be part of the solution. All grasses are not created equal. One grass called “Grassology” that home improvement expert Bob Vila raves about uses far less water, requires less mowing and grows deep roots. However, the next generation grass after Grassology is named Pearl's Premium and it uses even less water and saves even more time.
TIME: The EPA says that the average homeowner spends 40 hours per summer dealing with the home lawn grass. What if you could have an ultra low maintenance grass with deep roots? What if your lawn was much more drought tolerant, saving 3/4 of your lawn time because Pearl’s Premium requires far less maintenance, watering, mowing, or ever having to chemically fertilize the lawn? You could use, the 30 hours you save with your Pearl’s Premium lawn (on average), helping mom or your significant other, playing with the children or your dog, engaging in that hobby you never have time for.
