Benefits of Reel Mowing - Detriments of Gasoline Mowing

6 to 10% of our Air Pollution comes from gasoline-based lawncare. The mowers and blowers create 10 to 25 times more pollution per gallon of gas burned in an automobile. An acre of grass mowed emits the approx. equiv. of a 1,000 mile of car ride!
