Three things that you need to ponder, Carbon helps the soil save and store water. You can grab Nitrogen out of the sky and use it for free fertilizer. Automated (Robotic) mowing reduces stress and saves water.
Now that I have your attention let me elaborate…
If you understand the relationship and chemical properties of Carbon you will be very aware that Carbon is the savior that you have been looking for all along. Carbon aids in the soils ability to stockpile and store resources. Because of its atomic properties It has the ability to attract and hold other elements, including water! If the powers that be that like to encourage water saving they would do well to invest in some time to study the power of Carbon and it’s ability to increase water carrying capacity of the soil. For every 1% that you increase the organic matter in a soil (synonymous with Carbon) you will DOUBLE the soils ability to hold and store water! This means more stability, less dehydration, less water and less money! The level that agronomists agree on it around 5% organic matter, after a few years of running soil tests we routinely find that the average soil is around 2.5% or less. Wonder why you always have to water? This is just the tip of the iceberg.
There is a prevalent misconception that there is a lack of Nitrogen. The constant applications of synthetic Nitrogen and the seemingly necessity to do so is a sign of something much more deeper but for this article but if one studies Nitrogen you will be aware that there is over 32,000 tons of the stuff floating around in the sky, above every acre on Earth! This is all meaningless unless you also know that you can use it IF you have nitrogen fixing bacteria in your soil. Grass is a pretty heavy user of Nitrogen. Wouldn’t it be useful to know how you can use the stuff that you are breathing right now? 78% of what you just took in is Nitrogen and it is free!
The third thing that you need to know more about is an existing technology that has been around for more than 25 years is robotic mowers. The ability through modern robotic technology, lithium ion batteries and AI have brought the capability of automating the mowing of your lawn! while it is now possible to mow your lawn while you are asleep without waking your neighbors, while you are away on vacation or even during a rain, the even more important thing is that you enter a whole new dimension when it comes to turf performance as it eliminates a LOT of stress out of the lawn. This combined with utter domination in productivity over your neighbors (I mean how can they possibly win when your lawn is cut before they get out of bed?) translates in a lawn that not only looks awesome but has a lot less stress which means it uses less resources! Get ready for that lawn that looks like it never needs mowing!
