Natural Awakenings Westchester / Putnam / Dutchess New York

Local Lawn Care Company’s Mission has Sustainability at its Root

Green and Serene sustainable lawn care has moved to Dutchess County, offering weekly or biweekly residential lawn mowing and yard maintenance, spring cleanup, lawn top dressing and overseeding, yard clearing, small tree and shrub pruning and fall cleanup, including leaf removal. They provide these services without the use of fossil fuels, and apply sustainable methods to keep yards looking good. Owner Ralph Spafford says, “Our mission is to provide professional quality lawn mowing services while doing the least amount of harm to the natural world.”

Green and Serene’s machinery is state-of-the-art, battery-powered, commercial-grade equipment, so they do not require gas or oil like conventional lawn maintenance equipment. This is great news considering that, according to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, 5 percent of emissions in the United States actually come from lawn mowers powered by fossil fuels.

Spafford is serious about cutting greenhouse gases, so he charges his equipment via solar. This means the result is fresh cut grass with no fumes, spills or emissions, and less noise; a viable, beautiful, safe natural landscape for families and pets to enjoy. He studied sustainable landscape management at the New York Botanical Gardens and he offers free evaluation and estimates. “After an initial consultation, we can set up an annual plan to make sure your yard is always at its best,” he adds.
