Spring is just around the corner, and for many of us, that means it’s lawnmower season. If you hire a lawn maintenance company to handle your mowing, there’s a good chance it might be using propane to fuel its equipment.
According to an article in Landscape Management Magazine, recent Propane Research and Education Council (PERC) research showed at least one third of landscape contractors are considering switching to propane in the next three years.
