Giving dedicated students, grads, and community members jobs

Sam Forline, a serial entrepreneur, started Blue Collar Scholars when the economy crashed and college grads and students alike couldn’t find jobs.

Sam knew every house in his neighborhood needed some kind of work that could give college students and hard-working local community members jobs. Many of his neighbors loved the idea and wanted to help out local college kids.
Blue Collar Scholars now has a skilled team able to do everything from mowing the grass every week, weeding garden beds, taking down unwanted trees, cleaning gutters, taking out unwanted junk, shoveling snow in the winter, landscape design, and much more.
Known for top customer service and high-quality of work, BCS is now considered a premier landscaping service in Montgomery County and NW DC.

I’m a real estate investor and own 2 properties in Bethesda, MD. I was in search of a quality landscaping company that could maintain my properties. I called Blue Collar and spoke with Sam who was very professional and polite. I gave them a shot and have been using them for 5 months. Their prices are reasonable, but more importantly the service is good and I never have to worry. I would recommend them. Josh M.

I am thrilled to have found Sam Forline and his Blue Collar Scholars company to handle all my yard service needs. In the past, I have used a series of firms to mow my lawn and I never even met the owner or workers. From the get-go, I was so happy having Sam take such a personal and enthusiastic interest in what I wanted and assuring my complete job satisfaction! At the start of the season, his crew created attractive, defined beds throughout my yard, weeded them, and applied loads of mulch. The beds continue to look great. He also has kept my lawn mowed and looking nice all summer. Estelle N.

 I was so pleased with this company! I had BCS clean up my weeds, remove a tree from my yard and mulch and mow my lawn! Sam was so friendly and his team got the job done quickly! The price was much better than other quotes I have gotten in my area and I will use them again!
