Leaf Blowers
Posted on Aug 15th, 2022

We want to continue to create a beautiful environment in which we can all enjoy living, and part of that includes looking at “noise pollution” and seeing how we can effectively and efficiently reduce the noise in our community. One of the major sources of noise is the gas powered leaf blowers. Most of the subdivisions and resorts in Wailea are transitioning to electric landscaping equipment.  The Board has asked Island Plant (who maintains our landscaping) to transition their leaf blowers to battery/electric blowers at the latest by June 1, 2023. The board has also made it a requirement that homeowners and their landscapers transition to battery/electric leaf blowers by June 1, 2023. We recommend communicating this requirement to your gardener as soon as possible as it can take several months to receive equipment due to supply chain shortages.
