If you’ve ever been annoyed by the constant noise of a gasoline lawnmower on a Saturday morning, rest assured, you’re not alone. Traditional lawn maintenance is not only a noisy chore, it also has significant environmental consequences.


In this blog, I’ll show you how traditional lawn care can negatively affect the environment and why adopting electric methods could be a sustainable option for your yard.


Traditional lawn care – Peace and nature at risk


The noise of a gasoline lawnmower can disturb the peace of your neighborhood, but the problems go beyond the annoying noise.

Gasoline engines emit harmful pollutants, contributing to air pollution. Nitrogen oxides, hydrocarbons and carbon monoxide are released into the air during the operation of these machines, affecting not only air quality but also human respiratory health.


To fuel this type of equipment, approximately 800 million gallons of gasoline are needed each year, with an additional 17 million gallons spilled in the process!


In addition, this type of maintenance often involves the use of chemical fertilizers and pesticides, which can have various impacts on soil and water.

These chemicals can run off into local bodies of water, even affecting aquatic ecosystems. Pretty damaging, isn’t it?


Electric lawn care – The silent revolution


The good news is that there is a greener and quieter alternative: electric lawn care. Many companies, including Suntek, are leading this revolution by offering services that use solar-powered equipment, eliminating the need for fossil fuels.


A study published in the journal Environmental Management found that more than 40 million acres of land in the Americas have some kind of lawn.


The services provided by companies that use electric lawn mowers are distinguished by their quiet operation, eliminating all the noise pollution that usually accompanies traditional maintenance.


What’s more, by choosing this option, you drastically reduce emissions of atmospheric pollutants, promoting cleaner, healthier air for you, your family and your community.


Sustainability in action


This transition not only involves lawn mowers, but also means abandoning the excessive use of chemicals.

Many electric lawn care practices emphasize more sustainable alternatives, such as the use of organic fertilizers and more natural pest control methods, as you can see in our social media post.


With this approach, you contribute to preserving soil and water quality. Not just for the benefit of your yard, but also to help protect local biodiversity and the health of the ecosystem.
