The GrassCutters is a truly sustainable organic lawn care service. All of our mowers and hand tools are charged by renewable energy captured by solar panels on our trucks and trailers. Any emissions associated with powering our biodiesel equipment or driving our trucks are offset with verified vehicle emissions offsets purchased from Planetair.
Clean. Green. Organic. For Our Future.
The GrassCutters have been known to use a good old fashioned push mower for those hard to reach areas, like walkways and around shrubs. And we only offer children and pet friendly organic fertilizers, pest controls, and weeding options to protect our water supply. We do all of these things because we believe that being environmentally friendly should begin with your front lawn. Clean air lawn care is here now!
No Sunshine? No Problem!
The GrassCutters portable solar generators store enough energy to keep our mowers and trimmers going for 2 weeks without any sun. So there’s no need to worry about whether or not we can perform the service on your lawn. And in the event that we should run out of power, which is highly unlikely, every truck is equipped with reel push mowers that are powered by our GrassMasters (professionally trained staff).
Our solution compared to the conventional gas mower:
we produce zero emissions
Emissions are reduced to zero when run on renewable energy.
Pollutes the same as 40 late model cars. Emits the same amount of hydrocarbons (precursors to ground-level ozone) as an SUV driven 23,600 miles.
we are clean, quiet & renewable
We use clean, electric equipment powered by renewable energy. Electric mowers emit 3,300 times less hydrocarbons, 5,000 times less CO, one-fifth as much NOx as gas lawn mowers.
They are Dirty, Loud and Resource Intensive
Small engines contribute 5-10% of the nation’s air pollution.
did we say quiet and renewable?
Electric equipment is 50 – 70% quieter than gas-powered lawn equipment. Our electric equipment is charged using solar panels mounted on our trucks and our trailers.
Noisy & Unsustainable
Contribute 93 times more smog-forming emissions that 2006 cars The average gas lawn mower runs at 100 decibels – anything over 90 decibels causes hearing damage.
natural & organic
We mow at a height that maximizes water conservation and nutrient uptake. We now offer an all-natural, organic treatment & fertilization program to ensure your yard is beautiful and safe for your children, pets, & waterways.
Wasteful & Unsafe
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.
we offset our emissions
We run our larger mowers on locally produced biofuels. All of our greenhouse gas emissions are offset by wind power and carbon offsets purchased from Planetair to ensure our entire operation is carbon-neutral.
Contributes to Global Warming & Poor Air Quality
Gas lawn mowers consume 1.7 billion litres of gasoline annually. A 1000 square foot lawn generates 300 pounds of clippings annually, rapidly filling up landfills.
