More than just a beautiful landscape. A way to help protect the environment.
Proper landscape care and healthy landscapes also help the environment. A fertile green space can reduce pollutants and dust from the air, minimize heat buildup, convert carbon dioxide into oxygen, and minimize water pollution.
For instance, did you know:
- Trees, bushes, hedges, shrubs and flowers reduce air pollution by absorbing carbon dioxide and releasing oxygen. In fact, one tree can reduce 26 pounds of carbon dioxide from the atmosphere each year…the equivalent of 11,000 miles of car emissions.
- In the heat of the summer, your bushes and hedges can absorb heat from the sun, reducing your utility bills and conserving energy. Grassy lawns are 14 degrees cooler than bare soil in the summer heat.
- A landscaped garden can also reduce noise pollution in your home by blocking out surrounding noises.
Being Green is Part of Our Past, Present and Future.
Massey Services is committed to Best Management Practices (BMPs) to manage water, nutrients and landscape care applications. When we design a program, we take into account all factors – sun, shade, temperature, soil type and geography – to perform the correct treatment and only apply the necessary applications for the type of plants present in the landscape. Plus we use non-chemical means of creating healthy landscapes like Core Aeration, which creates healthy roots by ensuring landscape applications make their way into the soil and prevents water runoff to protect our waterways.
