Landscapers

Talk to your landscaper about Sustainable Practices

The village of Irvington strongly encourages its residents and landscapers who work in the village to adopt Love 'Em and Leave 'Em (LELE) practices on their property, providing a chemical-free landscape and enabling a mix of habitats for overwintering fauna. See more about this in our Healthy Yards page. However, for the areas where leaves must be cleared, using rakes or electric equipment is the sustainable and conscientious solution. 

Healthy Yards and Perfect Earth offer guidance on interviewing landscapers and Healthy Yards offers a checklist for best practice discussions with your landscaper - just scroll down to find them.  Print resources in Spanish here and here and pasted below too. Irvington Electric Landscaping Equipment Demonstration coming this Spring.
