The Green Movement in the green industry – the quest for sustainability
There is much talk in the media about being green these days and it is clearly more than just a fad. We here at Dave’s Landscape
have embraced this movement and strive to reduce waste and be good stewards of our environment.
In addition to the basic things such as recycling paper, cardboard, plastic and metal; we also recycle our used motor oil in our used oil
burner to heat the shop. We have a fully stocked yard to minimize trips to the supply house. We utilize a GPS system to monitor all of our
vehicles; to reduce idle time and route them in the most efficient way.
Our yard waste is composted and screened on site to make a rich top soil, full of organic matter. A high quality soil is
the foundation of healthy plants and lawns, minimizing the need for fertilizer and water.
We are a WaterSense certified company that employs two certified irrigation auditors and one certified irrigation contractor
to ensure that your irrigation system is designed, installed and operated to minimize water use while providing sufficient water for healthy
In the fall of 2008 we purchased three propane powered mowers which emit water rather than carbon monoxide as they run. As our fleet ages
we will continue to replace our gasoline mowers with clean burning propane, hand held propane equipment will soon be available as well.
In 2010 we installed a 1200 watt solar electric system, not only does it produce electricity, it also produces hot water through the
Sundrum radiators. Our lights and thermostats are electronically controlled and minimize waste.
Our latest push for sustainability is converting several trucks to propane fuel. This will not only minimize
our carbon monoxide foot print on the planet but 100% of domestic propane consumption is produced here in the US, reducing our
dependence on foreign oil. It also improves engine life & eventually will save the company money on fuel.
We believe that it is our responsibility to be good stewards of our environment and that our planet is on loan from future
generations, rather than bought and paid for from past generations.
Our mission is to make our community more beautiful by blending people with nature one yard at a time, for generations to come.
We purchased 2 more propane riding mowers in 2014 & will incorporating battery powered small power equipment in the spring of 2016.
