You get the same quality of service while having a positive impact on the environment. Did you know that 1 hour of using a gas powered lawn mower is equal to driving 300 miles in a car? Even worse, 1 hour of using a gas leaf blower emits smog-forming pollution comparable to driving a car 1100 miles. The EPA estimates that gas lawn mower emissions account for as much as 5% of the nation's total air pollution and over 17 million gallons of gasoline spilled each year just refueling.
Choosing to have a lawn care provider using zero emission equipment has an enormous impact in the quality of air we breathe and reduces your carbon footprint. Choose wisely and switch to a zero emission company today.
Yes, using electric equipment reduces noise pollution (and annoyance) by 50-75%! Gas powered equipment can damage hearing and runs at approximately 95 decibles vs 75 decibles or less with electric equipment. It is important to us that we cause less distraction to our customers, their pets and neighbors while we operate.
We sharpen our blades as often as daily. A dull blade can damange your lawn and is a simple and easy step we take to provide you with quality service every single time.
You should keep your clippings on your lawn. Grass clippings provide vital nutrients to your lawn and provide the equivalent of one round of fertilizer every single time you cut your grass. We take special pride in making sure your lawn clippings stay in your yard and not in your mulch, swimming pools, sidewalks, streets, etc.
You should cut your grass at least once a week. The most important way to maintain a healthy lawn is to keep your grass at least 3 to 3 1/2 inches tall. A longer lawn means healthier grass, fewer weeds, lush and greener appearance and lowers the need for watering. Mowing frequency and direction of cut is important to maintaining a healthy lawn.
The most important reason for having your leaves picked up or mulched into your yard is that it will help your grass grow! It reduces the risk of having leaves remain in your lawn that harbor diseases that can affect trees, plantings, and your lawn. A thick layer of leaves in your lawn going into the winter can cause dead patches and create thatch in your lawn come Spring. We believe you should leave some mulched leaves in your lawn so local wildlife can enjoy the benefits of the "leaf litter" in the winter.
