After being in the lawn industry for 15 years, I became increasingly frustrated with staffing, price of equipment, Pennsylvania weather, and being undercut by uninsured starter lawn services. More importantly, the effect the carbon footprint my business was having on the environment was of concern.
Having numerous accounts, it was also difficult to serve my customers if it rained all week. How do I get 100 lawns cut in 2 days? Shall I work Sundays? Who do I cut first?
I wanted to create a different lawn service. One that offered constant mowing with no grass clippings in landscaping and no rut marks or baling caused by zero turn machines. Most importantly, I wanted a service with
I decided to make a switch to the Automower. These machines can cut up to
1.25 acres with a noise level of only 60 db, so they can cut in the middle of the night without disturbing you or your neighbor.
The Automower can cut in the rain, senses when its too dry or too wet, and takes itself back to the charging station until conditions are appropriate to continue mowing. You never need to wait for your lawn crew to show up!
The Automower is GPS tracked so it never mows the same route twice and
you can control it from anywhere in the world using your smart phone app.
We offer a leasing/mowing service that includes the Automower, weed whacking every seven to ten days, and continued maintenance and blade replacement throughout the service.
I wanted the price point to be comparable to a typical lawn service in the area.
My zero emission lawn service is approximately $45- $65 per week for typical lawns up to one acre lawn.

Each weekend, about 54 million Americans mow their lawns, using 800 million gallons of gas per year and producing tons of air pollutants. Garden equipment engines, which have had unregulated emissions until the late 1990's, emit high levels of carbon monoxide, volatile organic compounds and nitrogen oxides, producing up to 5% of the nation's air pollution and a good deal more in metropolitan areas.According to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), a new gas powered lawn mower produces volatile organic compounds and nitrogen oxides emissions air pollution in in in one hour of operation as 11 new cars each being driven for one hour.
The replacement of every 500 gas mowers with non-motorized mowers would spare the air
