Last summer, when cyanobacteria invaded the lake, Patrick and Stephanie Ericson were concerned. They started researching—what causes a cyanobacteria bloom? How can it harm people and wildlife? They learned that the nutrients that fuel cyanobacteria blooms often come from the nitrogen in agricultural runoff. Thus was born EH&P Green (a division of Ericson Homes & Properties, LLC) a zero-emission lawn care company dedicated to providing quality and affordable zero-emission lawn care to customers in the local area.
Their investment in the business is personal and passionate. Stephanie says, "...We live here…and we love it here. We care deeply about our community. We have three children and we visit the beaches and waters of Spofford Lake often...No matter your standing on political or town issues, we think that most folks would agree—our beloved lake need help and intervention - now! It is important not only so that people can recreate safely, so that the wildlife and ecosystem of Spofford Lake and the surrounding water table are protected."

Their mower — the Mean Green VANQUISH electric commercial mower.
According to Stephanie and Patrick, all of their equipment is battery operated and extremely quiet—important work Zoom meeting? Baby sleeping? - their extremely quiet equipment will not interrupt these critical moments of your day. They pride themselves on mowing your lawn to the recommended height, generally 3-3.5 inches, to reduce weed growth, browning/burning, and the need to apply commercial fertilizers or chemical weed killer; and produce virtually zero emissions with no accidental fuel spillage or runoff—the only lawn care company in Cheshire County to do so. Stephanie says, "Our services are pet and child friendly. All of our services are customizable and no contract is required."
