How Owning a Car Can Affect Your Lawn & Garden

When it comes to your lawn and garden, the last thing you probably have on your mind is how your car can affect those things without causing damage.

However, if you’re not careful, your car can absolutely cause damage. One way that can happen is by simply washing your car. When washing your car, it is best to do it on your lawn so that water isn’t wasted and your lawn can benefit—but the chemicals you use are the issue you need to look out for.

When washing your car on the lawn, you should opt for biodegradable, Chlorine, and phosphate safe soap. When you’re finished with washing your car, you should give your lawn a light rinse.

You can also try to keep your lawn aerated so that the impact of tire tracks won’t be so bad, especially when you add water, which will make the soil damp and softer.
