Mowing The Lawn With Zero Pollution, Zero Emissions

We use electric mowers—powered by solar panels mounted on our trucks.

Meanwhile, in too many neighborhoods across the country, conventional gas mowers continue to run, 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.

Why Conventional Lawn Mowing Is Not Clean

Sustainable lawn care is not the same as conventional lawn care; it is dirty, loud and resource intensive. Small gas-powered engines found on conventional lawn equipment 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, 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.
