Reducing Carbon Emissions in White Plains, NY

Lowering Our Carbon Footprint

Together as a team we are reducing yours and our carbon footprint. How are we doing this?

First of all our clients don't have leaf piles in front of their houses in the fall. I am sure if you look around the neighborhood, you see them all over the place.

  • There is not one in front of our properties because over the past years we have made the investments and upgraded all of our lawn maintenance equipment with grass and leaf mulching adaptors. This is not to say you won't have a pile a leaves at some point in the fall, but we have been educating and training our teams on how to mulch leaves and are slowly trying to perfect the science. As a matter of fact we mulch all year round and have been returning beneficial grass clippings back into the soil for years now. This means the town truck doesn't need to come by to pick up that pile of leaves.

Secondly during the mid-summer months we have been cutting our grass about ¾ of an inch to an inch taller than normal.

  • We have done this for two reasons. (1) in August we were trying to help the turf deal with the heat, a condition we call 'Summer Stress'. Living in the north east our rye grass, blue and fescue grasses don't enjoy the 90 degree weather. We have extended this higher mowing height into September. As the daylight hours grow shorter and the temperatures being to drop the root system starts to grow more vigorously. The taller the grass blade, the more area there is for photosynthesis to take place.

Additionally we have added a few smaller more fuel efficient vehicles and an electric hybrid to our fleet.

We also doubled the number of ISA Certified Arborist to our staff.

We have been updating and improving our Health and Safety Programs, (you will noticed orange safety cones behind all of our trucks, eye and hearing protection on all personnel). SAFETY FIRST

Just a few things the Bellantoni team is doing to help improve the environment, our service and provide our clients a better landscape experience.
