Our Story

🌳 Improving Your Landscape, Improving Our Community🏡

Sam Forline started Blue Collar Scholars in 2013 when the economy had crashed and many grads and local community members were struggling to find jobs. Sam realized that every house in his neighborhood had a lawn to mow, gutters to clean in the fall, snow to be removed in the driveway and walkway, painting jobs, and other simple chores to be done. With a commitment to hiring, training, and connecting top talent with work in the community Sam continues to grow Blue Collar Scholars and create more jobs each year.

What Our Clients Say

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.

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.

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!
