Have you ever tried to get someone's attention while they were either mowing, edging, trimming, or leaf blowing? Between the roar of the engines and their hearing protection (we recommend using hearing protection!), you would have to set off a firecracker in front of them to cut through the noise (we recommend never setting off firecrackers in close proximity!). The point is: gas-powered lawn equipment is loud.

Electric mowers, edgers, trimmers, and leaf blowers cut down on the noise — substantially — as well as the harmful effects emissions have on the environment.


A typical gas-powered mower operates at about 95-100dB (decibels). And unfortunately, the louder, the better for these gas guzzlers. According to a study published in the Acoustical Society of America Journal, noise is directly linked to a mower’s cutting efficiency.

The lawn equipment LAWNOMI uses knocks the decibels down to a maximum of 80dB. From 95-100 to 80 is certainly a big drop, but is it enough to protect your hearing and reduce noise pollution?

Let’s back up for a second and take a quick look at decibels and your hearing. When exposed to 100 dB, you risk serious damage. The math is more complex here: 100dB is eight times louder than 70dB.

With every 6dB difference in sound, noise doubles. This means an 80dB mower produces less than half the noise of an 86dB mower. Noise decreases exponentially when you hire LAWNOMI to do your lawn care. You could go from a company using a 100dB monster lawnmower to us using an 80dB or less model.

So, is louder still better? The lawnmowers LAWNOMI uses deliver horsepower that exceeds most gas mowers and maximum torque from the start. Cutting efficiency is not compromised.

Reducing Impact on Your Environment

This is good news for your ears, as well as those in your immediate area including pets. Noise pollution decreases the quality of life, and it can be especially detrimental to children and pets. Being able to offer you, your neighbors, and friends a quieter lawn care solution gives LAWNOMI a sense of satisfaction of knowing we along with you are helping the environment.

Another important factor to consider is the health of area wildlife; human-generated noise impacts entire ecosystems. It can, for instance, reduce animals’ own ability to hear, which puts them at risk from predators. Quiet lawn equipment is one step we all can take to create a greener future for all of us.

Instead of the roar of a jet engine, LAWNOMI lawn care equipment emits noise levels similar to background conversation in a restaurant. And that sounds much better for us all!
