Why YardScape?

Reason #5: Air pollution

Reducing your lawn size to what you really need is YardScaping 101. Using a power mower consumes fossil fuels and causes pollution. Think of it this way: one power mower = 11 cars. In fact, a lawnmower pollutes as much in one hour as an automobile driving 400 miles.

It is estimated the average American spends 40 hours every year mowing their lawn.
