Lawn Care Guide

Carbon Footprint

Definition:

The entire amount of greenhouse gases that are produced in order to support human activities. For example, driving a car, heating a house with gas or oil, or running a lawnmower and other lawn care equipment. Today, there are more and more environmentally friendly cars, heat sources, and yard care tools that will help decrease your carbon footprint. A healthy lawn can absorb a great deal of carbon dioxide, which also reduces the homeowner’s carbon footprint.
