As a landscaping company, we love the outdoors! Our goal is to beautify the world around us and find ways we can do so with less negative impact on the environment. We have always been interested in acquiring electric equipment that would reduce emissions, but while electric equipment has become available for residential use, it has been more difficult to find mowers that are built to withstand the rigorous use of a commercial lawn maintenance business.
In the last few years we have found and switched to battery-powered blowers, trimmers, hedge clippers and chainsaws made by Dewalt. We have been pleased with the Dewalt power and performance, as well as the reduced cost of repairs and fuel. These are competitively priced and a great investment for any home owner. If you're looking for a residential electric mower to maintain your own lawn, we recommend EGO brand electric mowers.

In 2016, with the help of the Utah Clean Air Partnership (UCAIR) grant, we have also purchased two 33” walk-behind mowers from Mean Green Products in Ohio. Electric mowers have zero emissions and are much quieter than a gas-powered engine. We are excited to be one of the first in the trade to take the step toward using environmentally friendly equipment and better align ourselves with what landscaping is all about. Our grant story was featured on the Utah Department of Environmental Quality site.
