Our Culture

Our Big Hairy Audacious Goal

Our BHAG, a Big Hairy Audacious Goal, is to receive 40,315 ‘Thank Yous’ by 2029 (#Thankyou). The year 2029 will mark our 40th year in business. We will be counting all client and team member responses. These Thank Yous help assure that our team members and clients are satisfied and are proof of why we are in the lawn care and pest control industry - to help care for people and their property.  

We’ve worked hard to instill a known way of life associated with the name “Blades of Green” over the course of the past few years. Through these efforts we have created a supportive workplace that encourages growth and provides a great environment to learn in. We care not only about our team members professional development, but  their personal success as well. We host annual Kick Off and Half Time events for our employees, offer an in office book club and workout classes, and a rewards program to give back to our employees for living out our values. We believe that no matter what a person has been hired to do, they are not limited by their job descriptions. To us...our company's culture is everything. 

Our Core Values

Over the years we have grown, but we still operate with the same values and commitment to excellence that we started with. These values are summed up in six principles that guide our business and our relationship with team members and clients. 

  • Build: Build a legacy by out-servicing the competition every time. 
  • Loyalty: Loyalty is a three-way street (team member, client and company). Never throw anyone under the bus
  • Accountability: Do what you say you’re going to do. Own it. 
  • Dedicated: Dedicate yourself to turning the ordinary into the extraordinary.
  • Excellence: Get the little things done right. The devil is in the details. 
  • Smile: “We shall never know all the good a simple smile can do.” - Mother Teresa

Our values tell you who we are not only as a company, but as individuals. We carefully seek team members who go out and live by these principles every single day. 

Our Vision

Our vision is to change the way people think about our industry by creating a culture of environmentally sustainable practices, work-life balance, and consistent growth for individual team members and our business. Our culture will consistently exceed the expectations of our clients by empowering our most important asset—OUR PEOPLE!

Our Quality Standards
