“I have used Blades of Green for my Lawn Care for many years and have been very pleased with their friendly, expert service. There is a distinct difference between my lawn and those of my neighbors; mine has no weeds and is lush and green and theirs is not! I know that my lawn will survive this current drought because of the care given to it by Blades of Green. I also had them do a free Termite inspection and they were thorough and professional. I highly recommend them to all neighbors and friends. I believe they are worth every penny!”
“Their customer service is outstanding. They were very responsive to any concerns I had and always went above and beyond to address them. My lawn is looking great!”
“Their service is great but they don't always show up when they say they will. Since its exterior lawn service, its not the end of the world, but it would be nice to have better predictability/reliability.”
“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.”

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 showed up when they said they were going to be there. They were here several times over the course of the growing season. Their customer service was very good. I went with them because I liked the way my neighbor's lawn looked, and they did my neighbor's lawn. I'd rate them an A.”
“I had a positive experience.”
“I had a fine experience with them.”
“They just do general lawn care. We were looking for a company that used less harsh chemicals. Their customer service was very good. We didn't have any issues that needed to be resolved or anything—it's a good relationship. I probably chose them because they talked about being organic. I would give them an A-.”
“They did pest control treatment. I had no issues; it's much better. I might have found them through Best Picks. I'd give them an A. They were fine.”

“I have regular applications of fertilizer and pesticide put on my grass. Recently, they did aeration and seeding. Their customer service is unbelievably wonderful. They've earned an A+ grade.”
“They've been working all summer to get the lawn to come back. They've done fertilizing, aerating, treating, and seeding. They're very good. They always let you know when they're coming, they always knock on the door to let you know they're here, and they always leave a report of what they've done. I'd give them an A.”
“Blades of Green's customer service is good. They are always willing to answer questions and look into things. They're an A.”
“I was very satisfied with Blades of Green. They did quarterly lawn service to keep the grass green, and during each season, they would apply a treatment. They were recommended by a neighbor, and I saw them in one of the Best Pick books, so they came highly recommended. I tried them out, and I plan to use their service again this spring. I'd give them an A+.”
“It was pretty good. I liked when they came in at the end of the year and gave me an estimate and breakdown of what my grass needs. Each year is different, so I like someone to come out to look at it and say, 'OK, this year, this is what you need. You don't need this, but you need that.' The customer service was excellent, and they showed up when they were supposed to. They do pest control as well as lawn care. I was referred to them by my neighbors—I saw them do their yard. I would recommend them. They would be an A grade.”
“Everything was good, including the quality of the work and the customer service—the whole nine yards. I've been using them probably three years, and there have been no issues with the work during that time. Blades of Green gets an A+.”
“I had a great experience with Blades of Green. They do my lawn treatments pretty regularly, and they're on time, as a matter of fact. I've been using them for two years. I'd give them an A+.”
“They've always been friendly. They leave a report behind every time that they show up, and they do call ahead every time before they do the service. They do lawn treatments throughout the year, and they've also done seeding during the fall time frame. I'd give them an A+ grade.”
“Blades of Green seeded and aerated my lawn, and then they treat it five times a year. The reason I chose them over a different company is because they were recommended by my landscaper. They are easy to do business with, and they're prompt. They're good, so I'd give them an A+.”
“They do seeding and grub control, and they make sure that we don't get weeds. I like buying the annual service—they're very proactive about saying that it's time for this or that service, and they call to tell me when they're coming. If there's any weather issue or any reason they can't come, they will reschedule. They're really good about that. They're A+.”
“Blades of Green did basic lawn care for us. I think we've also had them do periodic pest control, but they mainly do lawn care. I've been using them for two years, and they've been great—no issues. I'd give them an A+.”
“They save me a lot of work. Everything went smoothly as far as getting them out there and cleaning up. Blades of Green gets an A.”

I know all the guys that come out here—they're very knowledgeable, and they're nice and courteous. I actually went to them because they were recommended. A lot of people in our neighborhood use Blades of Green, and that's how I ended up using them—they were recommended. I would give them an A.”
