Grass – Green living space and mental well-being

Green is the colour of hope, health, nature and growth – A lawn is green living space for the entire family: A symbiosis which couldn’t be more perfect … gardens without at least a small grass area, on the other hand, are missing an important element of recreation and well-being.

The green is attracting us

A beautiful lawn – in every shade possible – connects you with the positive emotions of the colour green like nothing else. Green provides contentment and energy. It symbolises naturalness, confidence, freshness, fertility and health – in short, life in full bloom. One of the reasons people are so strongly attracted to green is its attraction for rest and recuperation. The smell of cut grass also has a calming factor and counteracts stress.

History of the lawn

n earlier times people were, of course, unaware of the findings of modern psychology of colour and science. Yet they instinctively perceived the positive effects of green as a colour and “feeling”. The history of the lawn and/or garden dates all the way back to the late Neolithic Age (approx. 8000 – 4000 B.C). Between 4000 and 1000 B.C. the Egyptians developed irrigation systems and garden design was already an art form for the Babylonians. We can also trace the origins of one of the seven wonders of the world, the hanging gardens of Semiramis, to this period.

The ancient Greeks and Romans improved on the gardens and at the end of the 13th century, the term “lawn” appeared in literature for the first time. In his work “De vegetabilibus”, Albert Magnus provided specific tips for the installation of a lawn. Between the 15th and 18th centuries a high garden and lawn culture developed in the powerful European kingdoms. The English philosopher, statesman and scientist, Sir Francis Bacon (1561 – 1626) wrote at the time: “Nothing is more pleasant to the eye than green grass kept finely shorn”. In 1830 Edwin Budding invented the lawnmower – the breakthrough for lawns as we known them today.
