Did you know your family could be producing as much as 1,400 pounds of yard waste per year?
With nearly 12,000 homes in Spring Hill, Tennessee alone. That adds up to 16,000,000 pounds of natural resources that are potentially thrown away. According to www.brgov.com (Baton Rouge Governmental Website), we can positively impact our economy and the environment by changing our habits of raking leaves, bagging grass and throwing away yard waste. By learning simple time and money saving techniques like composting, grasscycling and mulching, we will learn the secret of turning old yard waste into “gardener’s gold.” You will have a more beautiful yard, lower water and fertilizer bills and reduce the demand for landfill space.
Grasscycling is the practice of leaving your grass clippings on the lawn when mowing. This can save time, money, and other resources such as landfill space. The clippings are mostly water and quickly decompose, returning nutrients to the soil. Grasscycling is also called mulch mowing. It does not require any fancy equipment. And the Professional Lawn Care Association of America recommends it for a beautiful and healthy yard.
Mulching is another simple way to recycle yard wastes and improve your soil. It can be done with grass, chopped leaves and woody materials. Simply place these materials around trees and in your garden around plants. The mulch serves as a protective layer on the soil surface. Mulching is one of the most beneficial practices you can use in the garden because it conserves water and provides nutrients to the soil. Along with composting and grasscycling, mulching is an important way to make use of green waste and help the environment.
What makes us stand out from other lawn care companies:
We use quieter and well maintained commercial lawn care equipment that produces lower emissions, uses less fuel consumption and is much, much quieter. We DO NOT use your basic low cost fuel from your typical fueling stations. The fuel we use is 100% NON-ETHONAL. We try avoiding using equipment that requires oil mixture in the fuel, which really helps keep the environment more clean.
Sharpen Blades Daily
Dull lawn mower blades does not cut grass efficiently, instead the dull blades crush and bruise the grass, leaving your lawn vulnerable to sun damage and disease and an overall unhealthy looking lawn. With sharp lawn mower blades means our machines operate at maximum efficiency, thus using less fuel consumption, and with less fuel waste means less air pollution. In addition to that, this also creates a sharp clean cut that makes your lawn look much more attractive and healthy and is less susceptible to disease. It is important to sharpen mower blades often, and we do it daily to ensure the highest quality cut!
We service and make sure equipment has clean air filters which helps the engines run more efficiently, thus using less fuel consumption. Again, this means less fuel waste that causes dirty air pollution. We also use full Synthetic oil instead of traditional oil in our equipment. Synthetic oil is specially refined and lasts 2 to 3 times longer than regular oil, which means less oil waste in our environment.
Keeping Equipment Clean
What does this mean to you? YOU ARE HELPING save the environment with less emissions, lower fuel consumption and much lower noise pollution. Save money and GO GREEN – everybody wins!
