Need something else?

You can report noise from lawn care equipment, including:

  • Leaf blowers
  • Lawn mowers
  • Hedge trimmers
  • Weedwackers
  • Auto tillers
  • Wood chippers or mulch grinders

You can use lawn care equipment:

  • On weekdays between 8 AM and 7 PM, or sunset (whichever is later)
  • On weekends and New York State and Federal Holidays between 9 AM and 6 PM or sunset (whichever is later)

You are never allowed to use equipment that makes unreasonable noise.

If a park is 300 feet or more from any residential buildings, park staff are allowed to use equipment between 7 AM and 8 AM.

What You Need
