O’Hare International Airport in Chicago is taking a new spin on the concept of landscaping.

The city is planning to employ a herd of 25 goats to clear out some vegetation at the airport, according to CBS Chicago.

By using the goats, the airport is hoping to cut down on costs as well as be eco-friendly. The Central Commissary Holdings will be in charge of the herd. 

The goats are projected to clear about 250 square feet of vegetation per day.
