A certain amount of CO2 is necessary for plants to maximize their growth potential. The majority of plants thrive when they are exposed to a high level of carbon dioxide. Getting a greenhouse is the best way to get a higher amount. It's very important to keep the CO2 levels high so your plants have the best possible growing conditions.

Always make sure to mow your lawn to the appropriate length, always making sure that the cut is not too close. Keeping grass with a little more height makes it healthier.
