The Choice is CLEAR AlturnaMATS now offers the CLEAR mat.
Grass needs sunlight and air to survive.
Most lawn grasses need 4-6 hours of direct sun to survive. Some shade-tolerant grass types grow as long as light hits that 4 hr quota—and the light doesn't have to be full sun. Four to six hours of dappled or filtered sunlight can fuel the growth of a healthy lawn.
When soil gets compacted—from foot traffic, mowing and the like—oxygen can't reach the microbes that break down or-ganic matter to enrich the soil. To keep your lawn healthy, it's a good idea to aerate it periodically to open up the compacted soil.
Roots can be damaged when temperatures are above 85°F. The combination of warm temperatures and lack of moisture can cause cool-season grasses to go dormant and turn brown during dry summers.
Unlike CLEAR plastic, black plastic blocks out light, smothering grass roots and preventing new growth.
