They took care of a lawn. They did it a few times before we moved out of state. The customer service is excellent. I went with them because they're organically based. I would give them an A.
My service is recurring. Everything is great. I'd grade them an A+.
They pretty much service me year round. I chose them based on the rating in Best Pick Reports. They were very positive and had a very good customer service rating, so I chose them. I have no issues with their customer service. I'm very pleased with them, and things are working out well. I would give them an A+ rating.
They're very friendly, and they're always on schedule. They do normal maintenance for us. I think in our area, most people use their company. They're an A+.
They're just informative and polite. They do quarterly lawn care for me. There's nothing negative about them. They were recommended by the people who do our other lawn care service. I would give Blades of Green an A.
I liked that they called me ahead of time, they were very punctual when they were here, and the employees seemed to be friendly. I have regular service. I chose them because they're local. I would grade them an A.
I would give Blades of Green an A.
They were on time, and they did the work that they said they were going to do—no other issues. It was aeration and grass seeding that they did. I have no complaints. My wife picked them. I think they're an A.
They do lawn care. It's a quarterly service. Their customer service is good. I've used them before—I've been using them for quite some time. They rate an A from me.
They fed the lawn, fertilized, aerated, and treated some brown patches. That's pretty much it. The customer service is very friendly. They do our neighbors, so we decided that if it was good enough for our neighbors, it was good enough for us. I would give them an A.
