I wanted to let you know what a professional and polite job Emile did servicing our property. I would also like to highlight how perfectly Emile handled a tricky situation during the service. While pulling hoses through our yard, Emile found a broken landscape light fixture next to the hose. He immediately brought the piece to my attention because he thought he had broken the fixture. He was very apologetic and wanted to make sure it was fixed. I was very impressed with his honesty and the manner he handled the problem. Actually, he did not break the fixture, as it had been broken several months earlier by a lawnmower. Emile should be acknowledged for being a very professional representative of your company.- Greg H.
I had my service with Blades of Green in October 2022. I must compliment my technician Mark Harrison. He took the time to listen to my concerns, answer my questions, and give helpful advice. I appreciate Mark's professional and courteous manner.- Chrissy F.
Lawn care questions frequently asked by Calvert County, MD homeowners
How to get rid of crabgrass?
The best way to eliminate crab grass in Maryland and Virginia will depend on the size of the area you are trying to treat. For smaller patches of crabgrass, hand-pulling or spot-treating with a selective herbicide may be the best option. For larger areas, you may want to consider using a pre-emergent herbicide, which will prevent crabgrass from germinating in the first place. It’s important to follow the instructions on whatever product you decide to use, as over-application or incorrect application of herbicides will do more harm than good. Additionally, it’s important to keep the area well-watered and mow at the proper height to discourage the growth of crabgrass.

How to get the perfect lawn?
We are here to help you grow a lawn you’ll love (and want to use and show-off!). , But, much like getting the human body into shape, growing a healthy lawn takes time and (lots!) of patience. There are a variety of factors that need to be addressed before achieving the “perfect” lawn. For example, soil pH, foot traffic, lawn disease, bug infestations, mowing and watering practices, animal activity, and more. On average, it can take anywhere from one to three years to get your lawn into shape.
