In the name of quiet: Local landscape giant trades gas blowers for battery-powered

Employees with landscape giant The Greenery, which has contracts with several area municipalities, and with Beaufort and Jasper Counties, on April 29, 2016, showed us the difference in sound level between their new, battery-powered leaf blowers and the gas blowers they're phasing out. The demonstration took place just off Bay Street in Beaufort. Company officials say in addition to being quieter, the battery variety are much more environmentally friendly.
