Beautiful Lawns
Lawns are a wonderful addition to our homes, the benefits they provide are immense, yet often go unnoticed without us even thinking about them. Yet, if we woke up one morning and all the lawns were gone we would suddenly realize the real treasure we had all along. We love lawns, and we've put this website together to discuss and share as much information about good lawn care as possible, and to be shared with as many people as those who want to have a beautiful lawn themselves. So if you love lawns as much as we do and you've found something useful on our site that you believe others might benefit from, please share our site with them.
Kids Love Lawns
A lawn is a wonderful place for children to play, sometimes it's a game of chase, an Easter Egg Hunt or it can be a perfect surface for playground equipment, sometimes the kids love to pitch the tent and spend the night camping out of doors in the safety of the home yard. Skipping ropes, touch football, blowing bubbles in the Spring, running under the sprinklers in the Summer, and chasing bugs and watching birds who come to visit, kids and lawns are the perfect match for each other, and a beautiful home lawn is guaranteed to provide the wonderful memories of childhood fun which can last a life-time of smiles.
Adults Love Lawns
A beautiful lawn is where a couple can relax in each others company in the Summer sun, it's where the lawns chairs can be brought out when visitors arrive to sit down for conversation and refreshments. It's the pride we feel when we're driving down the street and catch sight of our house, framed by a beautiful lush green lawn which welcomes us home to our own private castle. We may not realize it, but when we catch a glimpse of our children having fun in the yard and it puts a smile on our faces, we're really appreciating the environment we have created for them that allows these memories of childhood to happen, and that environment is our lawn.
