    Unless your original question or an update to it includes the name of the legal jurisdiction, we have no reason to believe your premise that they are "illegal" at all.  You may as well ask why people drive cars that violate pollution laws: because you can't stop all of them.

    ETA: in one of your comments to Emily J (if it's still there) you mention Los Angeles. If they have such a law, one would presume they have people who enforce it. Have you thought of making a phone call to those people?  If they don't have any official notice of the violation, they cannot possibly do anything about it.

    I love my gas leaf blower and use it every chance I get.  The fact that it irritates you is a bonus.

    Where I live, electric blowers are illegal, while gas blowers pollute the air with impunity. Go figure.

    In some places they are illegal, and since you stated that they are illegal, then they must be illegal. If you report the nasty and unnecessary use of this terrible invention, the gardener probably will not be fined. It will be the owner of the building which will be, causing a neighbor to dislike you, and create more problems. You may want to just talk to the gardener, and ask him to stop, and use a broom.

    One thing that it is really funny is that a lot of time there is not much to blow, and the noise is just to let the world know that the gardener has arrived.

    The gas leaf blowers are not ILLEGAL.  They are no different than "2 stroke" chain saws.   If you have a health problem, that is YOUR PROBLEM.

    As far as I know they are NOT illegal, they work better than the battery or electric kind anyways.  Just because YOU don't like them does not mean other people don't.
