Zero emission gardening companies take an environmentally conscious approach to gardening, simultaneously looking after customers gardens and also the wider environment. Although the industry of gardening might seem like it should be in tune with nature, and eco-friendly, often it isn’t. In reality, gardening practices can result in the production of pollutants which are harmful to the environment. On top of this the machinery and tools used often rely on fossil fuels to power them, such as petrol and diesel.
How is Zero Emission Gardening Different?
Zero emission gardening maintenance companies operate completely differently to standard gardening companies. Here are some of the ways how…
- Electric vehicles: electric vans and cars are used to transport the gardeners and their tools. Electric vehicles are powered by renewable energy sources and so don’t rely on burning fossil fuels for petrol or diesel.
- Organic treatments: your zero-emission gardening maintenance company will use organic treatments and fertilizers on your garden. Noxious chemicals such as Glycosides and Neonicotinoids can be harmful to the already threatened bee population, so these are avoided. Instead, treatments are used that won’t harm the animals that visit and inhabit your garden or pollute the water ways.
- Electric power tools: electric tools have the obvious benefit of being able to be charged by renewable energy sources, which is much more environmentally friendly than petrol or diesel power tools. However, they are also much quieter and can reduce noise output by up to 70%, meaning the garden maintenance company won’t disturb your peace whilst looking after your garden.
