Sustainable lawn care turns your yard into a resilient and healthy green area that is safe for your family and the environment. We use equipment that runs on renewable, solar energy and treat our lawns with organic, chemical-free fertilizers, making them safe to enjoy immediately – not 24 hours later. We service communities in Portland and surrounding areas like Beaverton, Lake Oswego, West Linn, and Oregon City.

At Clean Air Lawn Care, our sustainable lawn care practices begin with micro organisms in the soil and extend all the way to our mowing methods.
We have ditched gas mowers and their noisy, carbon-emitting fumes and use electric equipment that is powered by the sun. We even invented some technology of our own along the way: like the system of solar panels mounted atop our work trucks which keep our electric equipment charged throughout the day.
Conventional lawn care is not sustainable lawn care; it is dirty, loud and resource intensive. Small gas-powered engines found on conventional lawn equipment contribute 5-10% of the nation’s air pollution. Also, they produce 6.3 million tons of toxic and carcinogenic emissions and more than 20 million tons of carbon dioxide into the air annually.
According to the EPA, in 1 hour, 1 gas lawn mower: pollutes the same as 40 late model cars, emits the same amount of hydrocarbons (precursors to ground-level ozone) as a SUV driven 23,600 miles, and contribute 93 times more smog-forming emissions that 2006 cars.
