Why Blades Of Green Is Better
Your lawn is personal to you. So should your lawn care. When you partner with Blades of Green, our lawn care experts will listen to your concerns and evaluate your grass, soil condition, and yard use to design a customized lawn treatment plan just for you. That’s right – a lawn care program built just for your lawn – and your budget.
Regardless of the level of lawn care you choose, you’ll get expert care from trained professionals who care about your lawn as if it were their own. Plus, no matter which lawn care program you select, you’ll benefit from all the ways that make us different from other lawn care companies:
We are locally owned and operated
Our founder, Mark Leahy, started the company back in 1989 with just him and his brother, Brad. More than 30 years later, we have a team of more than 150 people partnering with people and companies in Maryland and Northern Virginia.
We have our own lawn lab
That’s right, we design and produce many of our products here onsite. This allows us to adapt to our area's and your soil's ever-changing conditions. Plus, we have test plots where we can benchmark results and innovate. There’s no moss growing on our feet (or test plots). We’re always looking for ways to improve and get better results for our clients.
We’re Soil Scientists
With more than 25,000 soil tests and 30+ years under our belt, WE ARE THE SOIL EXPERTS and know what your lawn needs. Not only do we understand the local soil and climate, but we also custom manufacture materials specifically for our service area and YOUR lawn. No big box, cookie-cutter approach here! It’s all about you (well, technically, your lawn).See Our Report Card
No, you won’t find us at the bar whipping up your favorite drink, but you will find us using our state-of-the-art mixing system to customize treatments daily. You won’t find that in aisle five at the hardware store, nor offered by our ‘competitors.’
We Leave No Stone Unturned
Okay, well, not EVERY stone - but you get the idea. Getting the best lawn care and pest control means having peace of mind knowing that one of our trained experts is taking their time to examine your property with every visit. This means if we see something that causes concern, you’ll be the first to know. Plus, we’ll even recommend an action plan!
We Hire and Train the Best
All of our team members go through a vigorous vetting process. Plus, each of our technicians receives more than 70 hours of continuous training every year.
We’re Good Stewards of the Environment
We are proud our applications are organic-based and phosphorus-free!
No one likes surprise visits, so we will let you know when we plan to be onsite a few days in advance. And, you’ll get a post-visit message letting you know exactly what we did while we were onsite. Want a text? You got it. Prefer emails? We’re in your inbox? Like hearing your phone ring? Hello, we’re there. Whatever you need, we’ve got you covered.
We Are A Client, Too
Most of our team are not only employees but clients too! They have lawn care programs set up for their own lawns, so we know how the process works and can speak from experience. Some send clients pictures of how their lawns have progressed. We live and breathe this stuff!
We are Award-Winning
Hey, we don’t like to brag… But we’ve received more than 1,000 reviews and countless accolades from multiple different publications. Check out our ratings here.
We Guarantee our Services
Should you have any problems while on our lawn care or pest control program, we will continue to retreat and address your concerns.
Clients Love Us - No, Seriously… they do! But don’t take our word for it.
We have been Blades of Green customers since 2005, for many different services from lawn maintenance, to sidewalk installation, to pest control, and there has never been a problem. We would highly recommend them to anyone.- Arlene Morgan
I signed up for this service as I quickly realized I do not have the time I thought I would to tend to the lawn. I am truly impressed with the service and quick improvement my lawn has had in the last two months! In addition to scheduled lawn care, the most recent tech De'Janae even brought my trash/recycling bins that were left at the street from trash day up to my garage during her visit. I appreciate the time and thoughtfulness I have seen thus far.- Arielle Nielsen
Blades of Green lawn care service has been great to work with. When we moved here our front yard was nothing but weeds and now its nothing but GREEN! Every tech that comes by has been super professional and very pleasant. Any issue we have they come out and handle with their expertise however up keep like mowing and water is what we do and helps with maintaining. Would definitely recommend them to anyone who needs help with wanting a good looking lawn to be green and healthy!- Michelle Bergstrom
