Toronto's lawns are living breathing environmental powerhouses! Turn on your landscape by growing turfgrass and enjoy the tremendous environmental benefits, like we did in our planter boxes. Turfgrass is cutting edge; we used 'Bella' bluegrass which requires up to 60% less mowing, requires much less water, takes the heat, but still cleans air, traps pollutants, provides oxygen and is an efficient urban carbon sink. An average 2500 sq ft lawn provides oxygen for a family of four for a full year. The secret is the constant growth. Unlike trees and other plants, this continual regeneration allows it to always be 'ON' and working to provide even more benefits than most city trees.

Care for your turfgrass, it's the easiest perennial to plant so you can do your part for the environment.
