We love Blades of Green. We've been using them for at least ten years. We're really, really pleased with them. When no one else can get a lawn going, they can. The workers are terrific and professional, and they wear uniforms. I can't say enough nice things about them. On a scale of one to ten—they're an eleven. They've never failed us, and we have a great lawn because of them.

My lawn looks phenomenal—better than it's ever looked. I've been using them for two or three years. They take care of my trees, shrubs, and lawn. They always call ahead to tell me what they're going to do and when they'll be there. They're great—A+.

Blades of Green does quarterly work on my yard. They're fantastic. The company I used before could never get my grass to do what it needed to do. Blades of Green knew exactly what to do. My yard looks like a golf course. I'd give them an A.

They did some fertilizing, aerating, soil samples, and weed control. I thought their work was excellent. What was good about it was their professionalism, attention to detail, and confidence. They were very, very professional.

Blades of Green does my lawn treatments and has also landscaped my yard. I’ve been very pleased with everything they’ve done, and I would absolutely recommend them. My neighbor said that my yard looks fabulous, and two of my neighbors have started using them.

Blades of Green did lawn treatments for me last year. I'm very pleased. I've used them for several years. I just did a job with them, and they've done work for me for quite a few years now.

I’ve been using Blades of Green for about 11 years. My lawn looks great. When I first moved into my house, they tore out the old lawn, reseeded it, and put down additional fertilizer and dirt. They did a lot of work. I’ve had them come back every year since. They also do seeding and yard treatments. I have recommended them to others.

Blades of Green is great. They aerate and treat my yard seasonally. I’ve been with them for five years or longer. My grass has never looked better. They do a good job.

We're very happy with their work. We've been with them for about 20 years, since Mark, the owner, started. He used to cut our grass, and then he went on to college and learned everything. We're very happy with Mark and his group of workers.

Blades of Green does my lawn treatments. I feel they do good, quality work and provide me with good service. They also did my landscaping this past fall. That went real well. They're usually really clean, and they don't leave a mess behind them. They're excellent; they're one of the best companies I've ever had. I ended up using Blades of Green because I called another landscape company that was working in the community. He set it up, he was going to meet me here, and he never showed up. That happened twice. I kept calling and saying, 'Hey, we had an appointment,' and he would say, 'I know, I forgot. I'll be there.' They didn't show up the second time, so I said, 'Forget that. I'm not using them.' I ended up calling Blades of Green. Mark came out and assessed everything. We went over what I wanted, I got his points of view, and then we went from there. They did all the landscaping, and they do all my lawn treatment as well.
