BrightView purchased and is in the process of deploying electric mowers and other electric landscaping equipment this spring.

“We design, develop, maintain and enhance landscapes for clients who have unique requirements regarding noise or environmental impacts and, in many cases, both,” said Jeff Herold, president of BrightView Landscape Services. “Recent advances in zero-emission technology are allowing us to look at this equipment in ways that will have great appeal for customers and help minimize our environmental impact.”

BrightView plans to have 200 electric mowers deployed by this year’s mowing season. The company is also piloting the use of electric charging trailers, blowers, trimmers and edgers with the goal of having select teams test new models of emission-free equipment this summer.

“When you think about the priorities of our clients, less noise can translate to better patient and student outcomes, more productive workplaces or a more calming and serene community environment,” said Tim Russell, vice president of operations at BrightView. “This equipment has little environmental impact and allows us to be at the forefront of a changing industry.”
