Mowing The Lawn With Zero Pollution, Zero Emissions

We use electric push mowers—powered by solar panels mounted on our trucks—for our smaller jobs and ride-on rigs fueled by locally sourced biodiesel for the bigger ones. Wind power fuels our equipment when it’s recharging back at the shop.

Yes, it hasn’t always been the easiest way to cut the grass, but no other emissions equation adds up to zero.

Meanwhile, in too many neighborhoods across the country, conventional gas mowers continue to run amuck, throwing hydrocarbon tantrums and polluting our ears and atmosphere. It’s no secret that we aren’t the only ones concerned by this: the E.P.A. estimates 54 million such mowers are used weekly, guzzling 800 million gallons of gasoline and causing 5-10 percent of the nation’s air pollution every year. Help us bring healthy, sustainable lawn care to Santa Rosa, Rohnert Park, Sebastopol, and Forestville neighborhoods of the Sonoma County, California.

Why Conventional Gas Lawn Mowing Is NOT Clean

Conventional lawn care is not sustainable lawn care for Sebastopol, Santa Rosa, Rohnert Park residents. These are out-dated, toxic, loud and resource intensive companies. Small gas-powered engines found on conventional lawn equipment contribute 5-10% of the nation’s air pollution. By removing this dependence on fossil-fuels we can help Santa Rosa and Forestville breathe easy with sustainable, organic lawn care.

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, and contribute 93 times more smog-forming emissions that 2006 cars.

Furthermore:

  • 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.
