Here is a little about Clean Air Gardening:
Clean Air Gardening might never have come into existence if Lars Hundley, the president, hadn't been too cheap and environmentally conscious to buy a gasoline powered lawnmower to take care of the yard at a house he was renting back in 1997.
There wasn't a chance that he was going to spend hundreds of his own hard earned dollars to purchase some noisy, stinky, gasoline-powered contraption just for the benefit of his landlord. No way!
Instead, he poked around the back of a local big box home improvement store and found an old fashioned push reel mower, hidden way down on the bottom shelf where no one could see it.
"Wow!" he thought to himself. "I didn't even know they still made these things! I wonder if it works?" He dragged it out from the bottom shelf, paid at the register and took it home.
Once Lars got the mower home, put it together and started pushing, he was in for a pleasant surprise. It worked, and it worked well. It wasn't noticeably harder to push than some heavy, stinking 80 pound gas mower. And it did at least as good a job cutting the grass, if not better.
That was the moment when the wheels started turning.
