Lawn Care Goes Clean and Green in Charlotte

Clean Air Lawn Care has opened to change the way lawns are cared for in the Charlotte area. “With Charlotte’s air quality recently ranked 11th worst in the nation, the timing is right to introduce an alternative like Clean Air Lawn Care and take steps to clean up the air we breathe,” said owner Phil Haynes.

Haynes found the environmental impacts of traditional lawn care equipment astonishing. According to the EPA, in one hour, one gas lawn mower contributes 93 times more smog forming emissions than 2006 cars and emits the same amount of hydrocarbons (precursors to ground level ozone) as an SUV driven 23,600 miles.

Clean Air Lawn Care uses battery powered electric equipment that is charged via a solar panel mounted on a work truck.  The equipment emits 3,300 times less hydrocarbons, 5,000 times less CO, and one-fifth as much NOx as gas lawn mowers and emissions are reduced to zero when run on renewable energy. The equipment is also 50-70% quieter than gas-powered lawn machinery. In addition, the company purchases carbon offsets through to ensure that the operation is run as completely carbon-neutral.

Clean Air Lawn Care also offers 100% organic fertilizer treatments eliminating the leaching of toxic chemicals into Charlotte’s waterways and ensuring a safe environment for kids, pets and local wildlife.
