Our environmental commitment
As landscape management providers, we are keenly aware of the importance of protecting our natural environment. While “being green” may be a catch phrase with other companies, at Landscape Solutions our commitment to eco-friendly practices is demonstrated with every lawn and landscape we maintain.
Landscape Solutions was the first company in central Indiana to integrate our fleet with propane-fueled mowers. Why use propane instead of gasoline?
Less harmful emissions
When compared to gasoline, using propane to power lawn equipment cuts the amount of greenhouse gas emissions in half. Propane can reduce carcinogens and toxins, such as toluene and benzene, as much as 90 percent. The exhaust from propane, as opposed to gasoline, results in 60 to 70 percent less smog producing hydrocarbons. Other benefits include significant reductions in carbon dioxide, carbon monoxide and nitrous oxide.
Propane is one of the cleanest burning fossil fuels. It is nontoxic and not harmful to water or soil.
Increased safety, decreased noise pollution
Propane is safe, being much less flammable than diesel or gasoline. In addition, our small engine equipment is equipped with low tone technology to keep noise pollution at a minimum.
Less dependence on foreign oil
Finally, 90 percent of the propane we use in the U.S. is produced domestically, making a consistent supply possible and ultimately reducing our dependence on foreign oil.
Because decreasing the impact of our carbon footprint is important to Landscape Solutions, we consider alternatively-fueled equipment like propane the only environmentally responsible choice. Our entire mowing fleet is powered by propane and we are currently in the process of converting our trucks to run on propane as well.
Our commitment to green technology extends throughout our professional philosophy. In addition to our propane-fueled equipment, we also offer customers the following environmentally-friendly landscape options:
Organic Fertilization and Weed Control
Landscape Solutions offers Certified Organic Fertilizer that feeds turf and soil while creating the proper balance of microbes that allow healthier, thicker grass to grow. In addition to being safer for individuals and local ecosystems, our all-natural products keep weeds under control and landscape lush and beautiful.
With the proper irrigation system in place, water conservation is easily improved. We recommend water saving technologies such as pressure regulated spray heads, rain/moisture sensors and smart controllers to create more efficient irrigation systems.
The future of our environment depends on long-term sustainability. Integrating new environmentally friendly technology as it becomes available will continue to be a priority at Landscape Solutions. Call us today to discuss how we can put our green technology to work for you.
A Commitment to Alternative Fuels

We are even in the process of having of our truck fleet converted to alternative fuels. Furthering our commitment to environmentally friendly measures, we have become a platinum member of the Greater Indiana Clean Cities Coalition.
