It'a great to have a team I can trust to show up, do a great job, and charge a fair price. Since at our current stage we aren't able to afford any sort of "everything" package, I appreciate that they take the time to explain what we can be doing ourselves too!

The yard looks great, and I don't have to do it, or even THINK about it. What more could you ask for?

Best Landscaping Services in my area by FAR! Grass Roots thank you so much for all your amazing work, and incredible customer service. It is amazing to now have the best yard in my neighborhood. If you are reading this review and not sure who to hire PLEASE take my word and do the right thing and hire Grass Roots. I wasted money with other companies trying to get grass to grow in my back yard and Grass Roots is the only company that has been able to successfully accomplish this goal of mine. Not to mention they do the best cut on my yard and they were not even the most expensive quote. I wish I hired them from the beginning. I am a local REALTOR and I will definitely be referring all my local clients to you. Thanks again keep up the good work.

We have been a Grass Roots Customer for over three years and are very pleased with the lawn and shrub service they provide. I found Dana Lyon to be a very personable honest individual who communicates with me on any aspect of our lawn service. If we have an issue with any area of our lawn, a call to Dana results in a visit by Dana or one of his staff to evaluate and offer recommendations to address the issue.

While Grass Roots offers a mowing service, I like mowing my grass and they have never pressured me to do the mowing. However, following a surgical procedure restricting activity, our lawn needed to be mowed. Grass Roots promptly responded and mowed the lawn.

I especially like Dana dropping by when he is in the area to review the condition of our lawn and shrubs but NEVER does a hard sell on any service Grass Roots offers.

Compared to other lawns services I have had in the past; Grass Roots’ prices are reasonable. A previous service charged over three times to aerate, over seed and fertilizer compared to Grass Roots. The Grass Roots aerating is thorough based on the volume and depth of the plugs on the lawn. I also believe Grass Roots uses quality seed and fertilizers.

Recently, Dana had two of his employee’s trim all the shrubs around our home. In a couple areas we have tall ornamental grasses (Gracillimus) which can be a challenge to cut back and clean the surrounding area. Dana’s people did an excellent job securing the blades, cutting each plant, and cleaning the surrounding area. Since we have rubber mulch around our home, I was very pleased to see the care Dana’s people took to minimize rubber mulch loss and still clean up the shrub clippings. I also appreciate them having me review the area, so they could address any area that needed additional pruning.

For years and years, I have worked tirelessly on the lawns of the properties that we have owned, to only be disappointed in the way my grass looked.  I have over-seeded, spread fertilizer, lime, and weed control and still I was dissatisfied with the way our lawn looked.  Finally, I gave up and hired Grass Roots Lawn care.  My lawn is now unbelievably thick with very few weeds. They even come and take soil tests to see if your lawn is in need of anything.  Who does that?  I highly recommend this service.  You won't be disappointed!

We have been extremely pleased with the service and results from Grass Roots over the past several years.  When we started, our lawn was in rough shape.  Previous companies and our own attempts to rescue our lawn were unsuccessful due in part to having a heavily treed lot and prior homeowner's neglect.  A friend recommended Grass Roots and we saw improvement within months.  By the end of the first season with them, we were ecstatic at how they had turned our yard into one of the nicest on the block.  I have since referred several friends to them and they have had similar results.  They know how to get grass growing in the soil conditions unique to our area. They are the best!

Had no success with other lawn services and do-it-yourself seasonal lawn applications. Learned about Grassroots from a friend so we had them provide us a plan to "bring our lawn back." Not only were their prices very competitive, but the results were fantastic in the first year of using their service. Dana and his crew understand the unique soil conditions of our area and apply a formula for success. Didn't think it was possible to get grass growing in our heavily treed lot, but they did it! Highly recommend!

After my backyard sustained severe damage (scalping) due to a broken deck support on my lawn tractor I hired Dana to do his magic. By the early fall my yard was again populated with green, healthy grass! I will certainly continue to use Grass Roots in the future.

Grass Roots is the place you want to have a great lawn. Mine was nothing but bare spots and lots of weeds with hardly any grass. Within a years time I now have grass to mow and great curb appeal. Pictures will speak for themselves. Posted below is before and after. Looking forward to another great year with grass roots.

Grass Roots has been servicing my lawn for over 3 years now. Their workers are professionals that do an outstanding job. They are timely and offer a variety of services. Best decision I have made in a long time, turning my lawn over to their care.

I have used Grass Roots Lawn and Landscaping for 4 years. I am completely satisfied with the lawn care service they have provided and find them very easy to work with. They are customer oriented and take the time to explain the lawn treatments they recommend. I highly recommend them as a lawn care service. They have different plans to meet the customer's desires and budgets.

We hired Grass Roots to do weekly mowing, garden planting, and leaf removal (in the fall).  Our yard was all weeds and red clay.  Dana offered us two options for a turf program with VERY reasonable prices that we can pay monthly.  We were hopeful but didn't expect the results we got over the next few months!  We actually have grass now!!  We've signed up again to keep our yard healthy!  The crews are polite, professional, and prompt.  I highly recommend Grass Roots for all your yard maintenance.

Dana and his crews are very responsive and reliable. I found their pricing very reasonable and they have been very easy to work with.

Needed basic mowing for 2 months while I moved to my new home. Fantastic job, quick, easy to deal with and reasonably priced. I'd refer to anyone and use for other landscaping projects. Great job, thank you.

Due to my husband's illness, our home's landscaping was in a dire state of neglect. Shrubs were overgrown, weeds had taken over to the point that they covered the lower windows and taken over the walkway leading to the front door! We had landscaping done before my husband's illness, but the people who we hired had moved away. I found Grass Roots through Angie's List and I am so happy I did. Dana responded quickly, came and measured and looked over the property. A few days later I had an estimate, and 2 gentlemen came early one morning. They worked hard for 2 days, and when they finished, the landscaping looked better than ever! They did a beautiful job, far beyond my expectations. I highly recommend this company - extremely pleasant, professional, and hard working.

This is year two that we have used Grass Roots and all I can say is WOW!!  I like many homeowners throw all the fertilizer and seed in the car and come home and put it on the grass.  Is it the right time?  right mix?  Weed AND Feed, etc.  Grass Roots took the guess work out of all of this for me.  I also never really have to be home.  They come by, put the stuff down, bills me later. Like I said, this is the second year and this review is just a testament of how good their work is.  I still do regular maintenance myself, like pruning, shrubs, and regular cleanup.  But in my case, I just wanted to have someone get the grass up to speed.  We couldn't have been happier with their professionalism, promptness, fairness in price and expertise (even FREE soil sample analysis).  I would highly recommend anyone who want to get rid of the hassle of regular grass maintenance, to give Dana a call and let him show you how much better he can make your lawn look. Here are just a few comments I heard from my neighbor last year. My next-door neighbor talking to neighbor across the street.  "We have to get started on the lawn because I have to keep up with the neighbor next door (our lawn)." In the middle of Winter - "Wow, I can't believe how green your grass is even in January" - "Looks just like the grass on a golf course" - Give their team a try.  You will NEVER go wrong with Grass Roots Lawn and Landscaping.

My highest recommendation!  Many thanks to Dana Lyon and his wonderful team at Grass Roots for all their help with our yard.  Dana and Chris came to discuss the work that needed to be done, and we promptly received their proposal.  Matt and Kyle, who came to do the work, were very friendly and professional--they came on time and did an excellent job in cleaning up the debris. We were so impressed with their work that we will be signing up for their mowing service, and we will also be definitely contacting them to do several other large projects in our yard.  Without question the best lawn service we have hired to date--we are extremely satisfied customers!

Dana was responsive from quote to completion. Out of three landscape companies, he was the only one that suggested a soil test (free) to see what the lawn needed prior to application of lime, etc. His crew arrived on time and was efficient and they returned several days later for application of the top dressing. During several contacts, he was found to be professional and personable. We enjoy working with them and will continue to use Grass Roots for several other jobs needed at our home. It was not a primary consideration at the time but it's worth noting that the cost of the service was substantially lower than a previous estimate we had for the same work. It is also important to note one other issue we came across that impressed us. When the first quote was produced, and after the work was completed, they informed us that they accidentally left a grass seed cost off the estimate. Grass Roots indicated this was their fault and not ours so we were not expected to pay the difference but we were told about it because future seeding would likely be slightly higher cost. This is a credit to their honesty as a company.

From a bad yard to a beautiful yard! Great company. Great service. Very professional.

I received multiple quotes and decided to go with Grass Roots based on the positive reviews and reasonable rates. Dana, Chris, and the Grass Roots team did an outstanding job cleaning up the yard and flower beds. With the added curb appeal, our house sold within three weeks! I had already moved out of the area and Dana did a great job of keeping me posted with the photos and email updates. They went above and beyond, taking time to stop by and water the new flowers and mow as needed until closing. I would highly recommend Grass Roots for exceptional service at a reasonable price.

Grass Roots Lawn Care is the best Lawn Care Service in Northern VA! They are always highly professional, courteous, and more importantly - good! They do an outstanding job on our lawn and always go the extra mile to offer advice and assistance and make sure we are satisfied with the results of their work. They are always on time, never "pushy" and offer the best value of any lawn care service that we have used. Plus - their customer service is OUTSTANDING. We always feel that they value us as customers and that we are not just another name or number on a list. I read a lot of reviews before buying things but hardly ever write anything. However, the folks at Grass Roots Lawn Care definitely deserve 5 out 5 Stars ***** and I would highly recommend them to anyone looking for lawn care.

Grass Roots has been cutting and caring for our lawn for over two years. We first started using them when my husband deployed. Once he returned we thought we would not need them any more but the opposite was true. With Grass Roots we were able to spend more time together as a family and less spent caring for the yard...not to mention we weren't confident in our ability to keep the yard looking as nice they do. I cannot tell you the number of times we have been playing in front of our house and been stopped by someone to either tell us how nice our lawn looked or to ask what lawn service we used. Dana, Chris and their crew our top notch! I have recommended him to my friends and neighbors (bonus that he gives us credit for referrals).

We used Grass Roots for weekly lawn cutting service and yard work. They have done spring time landscaping and mulching in the past. They put a flyer in our newspaper box to advertise their services. It was a very professionally put together flyer. They came out and gave the estimates I needed. I ended up going with them. I am happy with the service they provide. They try to come out on the same day every week, depending on the weather. They have never intentionally skipped any week for the service.
