Berkshire Turfgrass Specialists offers industry leading lawn care programs with sustainability at the forefront.

A healthy lawn adds value to your home in so many ways. A thriving lawn will improve air and water quality, produce oxygen and reduce CO2 emissions, control soil erosion and promote soil health. On top of all of these amazing benefits, healthy green grass improves curb appeal, increases property value, and let's just be honest, in some cases, it can be an excuse for some friendly neighborhood bragging rights. But what most homeowners don't realize is that a healthy lawn benefits the well-being of the entire family.

At Berkshire Turfgrass Specialists, we take pride in our lawn care programs because we know that we are providing more than just a beautiful yard and a pleasant place to relax. We are giving our homeowners a thriving outdoor living area that can improve overall health and happiness. Here are just some of the reasons for how your well-being benefits from a healthy lawn.


A healthy lawn works as an extension of the living space of your home. This outdoor living space creates more opportunities for people to enjoy the outside, which is great because spending more time outdoors does amazing things for your health.
Even if you're just sitting outside, enjoying your morning cup (or two) of coffee. Spending more time in your yard or garden strengthens your immune system because it allows you to get enough sunlight. In fact, just 15-20 minutes of sunshine per day will allow your body to absorb more vitamin D.


Do you want to naturally improve your mood disorders? Simply going outside and spending time in nature can help with stress, depression, and anxiety. A flourishing backyard can be an oasis and a retreat from daily life. It's important to keep your yard healthy so you will be more likely to go outside and enjoy it.

Doing activities outdoors can boost your mood and make you feel happier. There are so many different activities you can do in your yard, here are a few that you can do in almost any size backyard:

  • Play cornhole
  • Grill
  • Practice yoga
  • Gardening
  • Have a picnic
  • Reading
  • Cloudspotting

The list is endless when it comes to the variety of things you can do to enjoy your outdoor space.


Many of us are guilty of spending too much time looking at screens. Most jobs and schools require a significant amount of time spent on computers, tablets, or phones. Plus, the options for entertainment are endless with so many TV shows, movies, and video games at our fingertips. But, is screen time affecting your eye health? Too much time looking at screens can cause a digital eye strain that can cause headaches. So, every now and then, it's important to take a break from the screens we so heavily rely on and just go outside. When your yard is looking pristine, you can focus on the beauty.


A healthy yard is an invitation to a good time with the whole family and there are many benefits to maximizing family time. Spending time outside with the family strengthens family bonding, increases health and fitness, and improves all of the above-mentioned benefits like boosting immune systems, improving moods, and giving everyone a chance to break free from the screens.
