Our Story

Blades of Grass Landscaping is a family-owned business that specializes in providing lawn care and snow removal services. It was founded by Joe Novosielski— a veteran and lifetime citizen of Lorain County, Ohio. Joe served in the United States Air Force, serving in various locations throughout the world. After later retiring from the public sector, Joe decided to focus his time and attention on his business in the lawn care industry.
As a homeowner and family-man himself, Joe understands that many people lead hectic, busy lives in our current day and age. With many families working long hours, there is not much time left to enjoy fun activities together. But this does not always have to be the case. Our goal at Blades of Grass is to take care of all your lawn care and snow removal needs, so you can focus on what is important, spending time with the family. We are committed to consistently providing reliable and professional lawn care services.
Blades of Grass offers exceptional, high-quality landscaping services to clients in Amherst, Avon, Avon Lake, Elyria, Lorain, Oberlin, North Ridgeville, and more.
