Why are sustainable practices good for our neighborhoods and environment?

Sustainable practices reduce air, water and noise pollution and fossil fuel use.

Americans use more than 800 million gallons of gasoline every year to mow lawns. Replacing gas mowers and blowers with hand powered electric equipment results in a significant reduction of carbon monoxide, hydrocarbons, nitrogen oxides, methane and carbon dioxide in our air. The Environmental Protection Agency calculates that a single gas lawn mower emits the same amount of volatile organic compounds in an hour as a car driven 350 miles. An Environmental Protection Agency study found that approximately 9% of some types of air pollutants nationwide come from lawn and garden equipment small engines. Replacing gas mowers and blowers reduces pollutants discharged into the air as well as fossil fuel consumption.

Noise volumes are also reduced by eliminating gasoline motors. Gasoline powered motors run at 90 decibels while electric mowers run at a quieter 65 decibels. In addition, the brooms, rakes and spin sweepers we use make very little noise at all.

Lastly, by using natural fertilizers instead of pesticides we reduce water pollution from runoff into water supplies.

The choices we make and the actions we take affect our ability to maintain our supply of resources. With Fresh Air Yard Care as your lawn service, you enjoy a healthy, attractive yard as you support the sustainability of your community.
WHAT MAKES FRESH AIR YARD CARE A SUSTAINABLE LAWN SERVICE?
We employ practices that promote environmental quality to provide well-groomed lawns for our clients. Our sustainable practices include:
  • Using hand powered and electric equipment
  • Mulching the lawn with clippings to return natural nutrients to the soil and reduce the need for fertilizer
  • Applying only natural fertilizers, never synthetic pesticides or chemical fertilizers
  • Maintaining equipment, including sharpening mower blades to prevent grass from getting brown from ragged cut edges
  • Mowing the lawn at a height that maximizes water conservation and nutrient intake
  • Using string trimmers at a safe distance from trees and shrubs to eliminate the possibility of damage
  • Communicating with you about your lawn service
