The Green Side was started by Scott Butts in 2010. Scott had always wanted to be an entrepreneur, is a passionate environmentalist, and enjoys working outdoors. Hence, the beginning of The Green Side, which has grown every year since it began and continues to do so. Gas-powered lawn equipment emissions are worse than most vehicles, so The Green Side takes pride in knowing that it is making a positive impact for its clients and the communities they live in by using environmentally friendly electric equipment.
Scott grew up in Erie, Pennsylvania and earned a Bachelor of Science degree in Business Management and Entrepreneurship from Indiana University of Pennsylvania in 2003. He moved to Burlington in 2004, and immediately fell in love with the way of life in Vermont and what it stands for. Scott enjoys hiking, snowboarding, disc golf, mountain biking, and many other sports and activities that The Green Mountain state offers. Since The Green Side started, Scott has successfully completed a Master Gardener course, a Sustainable Landscape Stewards program, and has increased his knowledge greatly about landscaping going into his 11th year of operating The Green Side.
