Terra Nova advocates a leaf blower ban !
Let’s go from this . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . To this !

“What we’re trying to do with the leaf blower and all our lawn equipment is to create the perfect suburban landscape. How do we create that? We create it by destroying the soundscape, imposing on it the drone of the internal combustion engine” says Les Blomberg of the Noise Pollution Clearinghouse.
It’s a sad state of affairs when you know the gardener has shown up by how much noise they make.
We nominate the leaf blower as one of the worst inventions ever. With twenty-six million plus leaf blowers in the United States we think it’s time to find alternatives. At Terra Nova we prefer to use a broom or when absolutely necessary an electric blower over the two-stroke back-pack blower. Join us in calling for a leaf blower ban in your hometown.
