Renovation/DIY shows might be the flavour of the month; but when will we see a renovation show that actual shows viewers how to do it themselves, rather than showing viewers contestants arguing amongst themselves?
The Home Team has been devised to empower and inspire those wanting to have a go at home DIY. Its three hosts are experts in their fields and eager to share their knowledge with viewers and to give them the confidence to get their hands dirty.
This summer its time to do those DIY jobs you’ve been putting off... no more excuses! With some help from Munns, The Home Team will show you the how, what, why and when.
Designed to give you the best possible result in an easy and low maintenance solution, Munns products will get you started on your home DIY festive holiday break.
This week's episode of The Home Team features Munns and the environmental benefits of having a lawn.
What are the environmental benefits of lawns?
Improved Air Quality: A 15m x 15m well-maintained grass area will create enough oxygen to meet the needs of a family of 4 every day. Acting like a gigantic sponge, lawns absorb all types of airborne pollutions such as soot, dust and carbon dioxide.
Electricity Saving in Summer: The front lawns of a block of eight houses have the cooling effect of about 70 tons of air-conditioning enough to cool 16 average homes. On a hot summer’s day grass can be 10-14 degrees cooler than exposed soil and as much as 30 degrees cooler than concrete or asphalt.
Water Quality: Studies show healthy lawns absorb rainfall 4-6 times more effectively than pastures, being exceeded only by virgin forest. Lawn returns the moisture to the water table, where it can again be used by everyone.
Reduction Glare: Lawns help to soften and reduce reflected light, lessening glare.
Health: Lawn maintenance requirements provide an excellent opportunity to enjoy reasonable exercise while enjoying fresh air.
Noise Reduction: Good turf can absorb sound better than heavy carpeting
