Lawn for LEED Projects

"We are currently working with Pearl's Premium on a residential project for LEED certification."
Mark Price, LEED Accredited Professional, Principal Consultant, Price Sustainability Associates.

Pearl’s Premium Ultra Low Maintenance Lawn Seed is ideally-suited to residential and commercial projects seeking lawns that align with the LEED® categories of:

  • Sustainable sites
  • Water efficiency

In addition, consider submitting your Pearl's Premium lawn for LEED® Innovation points.

Sustainable sites:

Because of its selected growth characteristics, Pearl's Premium Ultra Low Maintenance Lawn Seed is more suitable than other grass blends. Its deep-rooted and thick growth habit:

  • Eliminates watering once established (zeroscape in northern zones)
  • Reduces or elmiminates chemical fertilizer requirements
  • Requires much less frequent mowing (once a month)

Pearl’s Premium Ultra Low Maintenance Lawn Seed brings lawn back into the LEED® discussion for “Sustainable Sites.”

Water efficiency: 

Pearl's Premium Ultra Low Maintenance Lawn Seed Mixes use water very efficiently. As a result, they may enable your LEED® project to meet the 1.1. and 1.2 standards for water efficiency.

Pearl's Premium mixes are specially-blended to grow a 12-48 inch deep root system after one year. As a result, they only require watering for a one-month period to get established, periodic watering during first hot summer period, another one-month period for an (optional) over-seeding the second planting season (recommended), and then rarely or never again.
