The answer, as unusual as it may seem… The sun!

Well, that and the air. The grass uses the energy from the sun to convert the carbon dioxide in the air into carbon biomass. It also draws water up from the soil, but that isn’t as enchanting.

Plants build mass from the carbon dioxide in the air and water. Sugars are hydrocarbon molecules made with hydrogen, carbon, and oxygen. The sunlight creates the reaction in pants to take the carbon/oxygen from carbon dioxide and the hydrogen/oxygen from water and turns it into plant energy and leftover oxygen.

It helps it you have some ashes to spread on random spots on the lawn before a rain, it’s good for the plants.

Most of the mass of a plant does not come from the soil. If you look at the composition of a plant, it is mostly cellulose and water. The water comes from well, rainwater. The cellulose is made from sugars which are produced by photosynthesis. In this process water and carbon dioxide are combined to produce sugar and oxygen, using energy from sunlight.

Ignoring pure water content and broken down by weight, roughly 95% of a plant’s mass is contributed by the elements oxygen, carbon, and hydrogen. These are all sourced from groundwater or directly from the air. Plants only take a tiny fraction of their mass from the soil, consisting of trace nutrients like potassium, calcium, phosphorus, magnesium, etc.
