Benefits of Texas Turfgrass

Members of the Turfgrass Producers of Texas grow sod grass in every corner of our state for use on lawns, sports fields, golf courses, and commercial sites.

Here in Texas,

Turfgrass:

Provides Erosion Control

In the U.S. alone, nearly 6 billion tons of soil wash or blow away each year. Soil erosion in the U.S. costs between $6 billion and $16 billion a year.

Cuts Down on Dust

Turfgrass helps control pollution, trapping an estimated 12 million tons (10.9 million metric tons) of dust and dirt released annually into the atmosphere.

Creates Greenspace for Families to Play

For over 1000 years, humans have cultivated lawns for parks, gardens, and outdoor sports.

Produces Oxygen and Cools the Air

A lawn, 50′ x 50′ (15.24 x 15.24 m) (2,500 ft²) (232 m²) releases enough oxygen for a family of four, while absorbing carbon dioxide, ozone, hydrogen fluoride, and peroxyacetyl nitrate. 

Filters Stormwater Runoff

A dense, healthy lawn prevents run-off, absorbing rainfall six times more effectively than a wheat field and four times better than a hay field.

Protects Structures as a Fire Barrier

A healthy lawn can deter crime and promote safety as sightlines discourage intruders and improve visibility.

Increases Curb Appeal & Property Values

As part of a well-designed and maintained landscape, turfgrass increases a home’s property value 15 to 20%.

Instills a Sense of Community Pride

Lawns and parks create communal spaces to gather, throw a frisbee, walk the dog, enjoy a concert, or take in Fourth of July fireworks.

Improves Quality of Life

Spending time in nature has documented mental health benefits. Walk barefoot in cool green grass and you’ll know why turf is so important.
