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 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.

We Love Our Communities!

We’re a small local business operating in Maryland, DC, and Virginia. No matter where you are in the DMV you can rest assured a local scholar is ready to help out.

We always make sure to get the job done right and bring the highest level of professionalism no matter what!

“I hired Blue Collar Scholars to do landscaping work for me this past fall. I was amazed to see the Scholars ready to work at my door by 8am, it’s a miracle just getting my college aged son to wake up on time. They clearly hire the best!” Richard S.
