Why Clean Air Lawn Care?

CLEAN AIR LAWN CARE
WE ARE CLEAN, QUIET & RENEWABLE

We use clean, electric equipment powered by renewable energy
•Electric mowers emit 3,300 times less hydrocarbons, 5,000 times less CO, one-fifth as much NOx as gas lawn mowers.
•Emissions are reduced to zero when run on renewable energy
•Electric equipment is 50 – 70% quieter than gas-powered lawn equipment

Our electric equipment is charged using solar panels mounted on our trucks and wind energy powering our shops
We run our larger mowers on locally produced biofuels
All of our greenhouse gas emissions are offset by wind power and carbon offsets purchased from Carbonfund.org to ensure our entire operation is carbon-neutral
All grass clippings and organic matter are recycled, either on site or at a local recycling center
We mow at a height that maximizes water conservation and nutrient uptake
We now offer an all-natural, organic treatment & fertilization program to ensure your yard is beautiful and safe for your children, pets, & waterways

CONVENTIONAL LAWN SERVICES
THEY ARE DIRTY, LOUD & RESOURCE INTENSIVE

Small engines contribute 5-10% of the nation’s air pollution
According to the EPA, in 1 hour, 1 gas lawn mower:
•Pollutes the same as 40 late model cars

•Emits the same amount of hydrocarbons (precursors to ground-level ozone) as a SUV driven 23,600 miles

•Contribute 93 times more smog-forming emissions than 2006 cars

The average gas lawn mower runs at 100 decibels – anything over 90 decibels causes hearing damage
Gas lawn mowers consume 580 million gallons of gasoline annually
A 1000 square foot lawn generates 300 pounds of clippings annually, rapidly filling up landfills
Many lawn services mow at a height that burns the grass, wastes water, and promotes weed growth
Synthetic fertilizers and pesticides leach into waterways, create yards unfit for children & pets, and deplete the soil’s organic matter
