Town’s Landscaping Law Prohibiting Gas-Powered Leaf Blowers Back In Effect

The North Hempstead Town Board is reminding residents and landscaping companies that the town’s landscaping regulations are back in effect.

The regulations prohibit commercial landscapers from using gas-powered leaf blowers from June 15 to September 15 every year in hopes of reducing noise pollution and air pollution caused by gas-powered leaf blowers.

Commercial landscaping is permitted between 8 a.m. and 7 p.m. on weekdays and 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Saturdays with no operation on Sundays and holidays. Restrictions may be suspended during emergencies.

Restrictions will not apply to their use at golf courses and cemeteries, except when equipment is operated within 100 feet of a lot containing a residence.

For more information or to report a landscaper violating these restrictions, please call the Town’s Call Center at 311 or 516-869-6311
