“Our lawn looks awful after several years of using this company. The mosquito spray doesn't last longer than a couple weeks. It used to last longer but I guess they changed their formula. Customer service is usually good but their end result on our lawn has been dismal.”

“The results were average in comparison to other companies’ services I used, but much more expensive. Follow-up on complaints was very poor. The cancellation process was a nightmare. The budget billing may set you up for a huge cancellation balance $500-$1000 even after ‘credits and discounts.’ My biggest regret is not cancelling the service sooner when I first sensed that they weren't meeting my needs. Buyer beware!”

“B.O.G. has been great to work with. Personnel are always pleasant and professional on the phone. They come out promptly to assess concerns in person for those rare instances when a phone call is not sufficient. The lawn and shrubs look great! Their use of environmentally friendly treatments made us choose them. Their expertise and professionalism have made us keep them.”

“I called Blades of Green for problems with my lawn. I had many bare patches where some underground utilities were installed. I had tried myself to repair but with no results. Technician Mark made a site visit, formulated a plan, explained that it was going to be a progressive treatment and said by the end of the season the lawn would be beautiful. He was correct. My neighbors all have lawn envy, and we couldn't be more satisfied. I continue to use B.O.G. services and highly recommend them for their honest, upfront approach and superior service.”

“Blades of Green has been spraying my yard for ticks and mosquitoes for three years, and I have seen exactly one mosquito in all that time. They are friendly and polite. What more can I say?”

Review by

“We had another named lawn care service for ten years before Blades of Green. They don't even come close to the service, expertise, and overall experience that Blades of Green provides. We have been a client now for two years and wouldn't have it any other way. Thank you, Blades of Green!”

Review by

“Received great service, have lawn service with them as well. Very professional, very knowledgeable and delivered prompt service. They are priced a little higher than many of the national chains, but you get what you pay for, having tried several national chains. To get the best I guess sometimes you have to pay a little more. I would highly recommend Blades of Green and B.O.G.”

“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!”

“1 appointment was missed but I was not charged. Not sure if mosquito and tick control rids of ‘no-see-um’ but it didn't! Results were not as good as last year, but still better than before we started B.O.G.!!”

“Grass died they continued to fertilize dead grass. Did give me help on what to do. One person said wait till Fall. Why then are they still coming out. My contract should be suspended and renewed in the Fall.”

“I have been using Blades of Greed for 3 years now to care for my lawn. They are reasonably priced and most professional. They always call to confirm appointments and leave the proper signs in yard as well as service report on the front door.”

“Very professional company wants to please the customer. There mosquito treatment worked the best out of several companies I have used. The lawn service was also very good and the customer service was great when we had a small issue. I like this company and will use them again in the future—A+!!”

Review by

“We've used B.O.G. for over a year. Their customer service is great. A manager even came out to my house right away the one time I had a problem/question. They have performed monthly fertilization and yearly aeration and seeding. Our lawn looks a lot better than before we used them.”

“I  started with Blades of Green because I support local businesses. However, I've stayed with them because they provide excellent, friendly, personal service. When I moved overseas for a few years, they worked with me via email and kept me updated on the progress of my yard back home. Now that's being treated like a valued customer!”

Review by

“I  have been using Blades of Green for many years now and absolutely love their service. The technicians are wonderful to work with as is their customer service. Everyone I have ever spoken to with B.O.G. has been helpful and knowledgeable. Their treatment sprays work wonderfully! I have referred quite a few friends to their service and will continue to use them for years to come—A+.”

“This was my first year using the weed service. I needed to call them because I saw very little results and emailed photos. I was not totally satisfied with their scheduling and needed to call because of seeing growth in my mulched beds and stony areas. I paid in advance for 7 treatments.”
