Electric Turf Grass Equipment

With much of turf grass equipment (mowers, weed whackers, backpack blowers, etc.) becoming cleaner and greener with lithium batteries and electric power, the Resort is excited to be testing a compact robot lawn mower. Golf courses and landscaping industries have successfully implemented this machinery with benefits of a positive environmental aspect, less air pollution and reduced noise levels.

Sustainable steamer to kill weeds.

Steam Weed Control

Crystal Springs Resort has begun to use steam weed control which involves killing weeds with hot water.  This chemical-free method is very well suited for removing weeds along footpaths and can be used on all surfaces. This includes harder to reach areas such as between bricks or stone. Essentially, the steam destroys the growing tips, which delays quick regeneration that happens when cutting down weeds. Steam weed control also helps to limit the risk of contamination often caused by pesticides
