How to maximise carbon sequestration of turf

'Technical Assessment of the Carbon Sequestration Potential of Managed Turfgrass in the United States' 1 is a research report by Dr. Ranajit that reported key findings that an average maintained lawn sequestrates 4 times the amount of carbon compared to the output of a typical modern lawn mower. If one compares a well managed lawn to a poorly managed one or unmanaged grasslands, the net carbon intake of a well managed lawn is five to seven times higher than the carbon output of mowing. This study also found that carbon sequestration of turf grasses can be maximised by measures such as:

cutting regularly and at the appropriate height,

feeding with nutrients left by grass clippings,

watering in a responsible way,

not disturbing grass at the root zone

All these measures help grass actively pull pollutants from the air, creating a greater carbon benefit.
