It is a fact that the grass is not as awful as we assume. We know that by comprehending nature: Just like plants, the grass also loves their fertile land.
Mother Nature is the creator of all living things on this planet. Each species is born with its own mission and grass is no exception. The land overgrown with grass is really alive.
- The grass is absorbing nutrients from the soil, but they are also protecting and shielding the soil from heavy rains. Many of the nutrients of the soil will be pushed along by the swift current.
- The grass protects the soil from the sun, which is burning with hard glistens.
- The grass helps to retain water so that the motherland does not dry out on summer days.
- The grass cover on the soil forms a natural habitat for microorganisms, earthworms and insects.
- The grass is also a source of nutritious green manure for plants when trimmed to cover or compost, creating organic humus for the soil to grow plants.
For example: When our skin is injured, a thin layer of skin first covers the flesh from the damaged old skin to help prevent further bleeding. As the wound heals, that thin layer of skin is lost. Likewise, bare ground is a wound of nature and the grass are a protective layer of skin that covers bare soil to prevent erosion.
As an Organic smart farmer, you will be interested in storing carbon and planting lots of trees to generate biomass that helps keep carbon in the soil and prevent it from being released into the atmosphere, right?
The grass can do that if we use them properly and in turn will help you reduce your greenhouse gas emissions. At biophap, we use rolofaca – a lawnmower when they grow too tall and use them to make insulation. If the temperature is reduced, the warmth of the soil will not decrease. Well, now you will see that the life cycle of grass is always favourable to us.
And the benefits that we mentioned above will no longer exist if you think they are harmful, competing for the nutrients of the tree and trying to root out them. You have to look before you leap and treat grass more fairly.
