Grass has much more than decorative virtues. Occupying 90-95% of green areas in private gardens and public green spaces, its contribution is multiple: 

  • It filters dust particles in the air,
  • Thanks to photocatalysis, it captures polluting gases (CO2, NO2)
  • It filters rainwater by capturing heavy components,
  • It absorbs noise in the city,
  • It reduces temperatures. 

According to a British study (*), grass captures twice as much carbon as a deciduous forest (oak, poplar, mulberry), for the same floor area. 

Thus, for an area of 1,000 m2, the lawn: 

  • Produces the amount of oxygen needed for 16 people,
  • Captures the CO2 production of 3 cars.
