Grass Cutting in Mississauga can be performed without tapping into our power grid. With a little innovation and a desire to protect our natural resources, we can help keep Mississauga green.
At Kick Gas Lawn Care, we live by our environmental principles by caring for lawns throughout Mississauga using emission free and organic techniques. We believe having a beautiful, lush, green lawn should not come at the expense of our air, soil and water. Solar energy is the way of the future. We harness solar power with panels on top of our trailer and use lithium ion battery equipment to operate off the power grid and completely emission free. Battery powered equipment has made incredible progress over the past few years. It is quiet, efficient and emission free. Mississauga Lawn Care companies are reluctant to change how they operate. Kick Gas Lawn Care is setting a new standard in lawn care and encourages others to see the value in using sustainable energy as opposed to gas.
According to the Government of Canada, a gas powered lawn mower emits 106 pounds of greenhouses gases every season. Due to their inefficient design, gas powered yard tools are a serious contributor to air pollution. In fact, in a study by the Ministry of Environment Canada – they found that operating a gas powered lawn mower for one hour has the potential to produce the same amount of VOCs, NOx, CO – all components of smog – as driving a new car for 550 km!
As of 2006, two thirds of all Canadians owned a gas powered lawn mower. Unfortunately, operating gas powered lawn care tools negatively impacts the Earth’s ground level ozone. Ground level ozone is formed when emissions from gas powered machines both on the road and in your backyard react with heat and sunlight. During the height of the summer, ground level ozone levels become harmful to everyone’s health. Those with pre-existing respiratory problems, as well as older adults, and younger children are particularly susceptible to the negative effects of ground level ozone.
The health of your soil is also affected. While most lawn care techniques, such as seasonal fertilizing, amending with lime, and overseeding are beneficial practices, spilled fuel is not. Over the course of a lawn care season, gas powered lawn mowers require constant refuelling, and sometimes it gets spilled. This fuel soaks in affecting the health of your lawn, and causing adverse effects on groundwater. By running on electricity as opposed to gas, the sounds, smells, and negative environmental impact usually associated with lawn care don’t apply to Kick Gas Lawn Care.
It’s true what they say about necessity being the mother of all invention. Finding alternative energy sources is just as important on your front lawn as it is in your driveway. That’s why we started Kick Gas Lawn Care. We are proud to be Mississauga’s first totally off the grid lawn care provider. Our efforts have not gone unnoticed. In 2015 Kick Gas Lawn Care was a finalist in the Mississauga Business Awards of Excellence for the Clean and Green category.
