Kelly Giard | CEO and Founder

Kelly Giard Clean Air Lawn Care Founder

Kelly Giard is the owner and founder of Clean Air Lawn Care. He started operating Clean Air Lawn Care out of his home in 2006. His second son had just been born.  As a parent, he wanted to do something truly impactful with his work life. He’d been ruminating on the business idea for about three years when he decided to take a leap and make his dream a reality.

 I started the company to change the world.  You wouldn’t think that changes in lawn care could have an impact on the overall health of the planet until you dig into data.  When we started Clean Air the EPA estimated 10-12% of the US air pollution was coming from small engines where the majority of those were lawn care related.  Additionally, the use of chemicals on US lawns is a major health risk to kids and pets.  Cleaning up lawn care in the US can change the world and our leadership on the business side of the problem empowers others in government and with home ownership to change. – Kelly Giard
