Who We Are

We are a dedicated team of landscape professionals.

It all started with just one lawnmower and a Volkswagen Bug; J.B. Kline started his very own lawn maintenance and landscaping company. Over the next few years J.B. Kline Landscaping developed a large customer base along with an impeccable reputation for quality work, projects completed on time and at a reasonable price – principles that the company is still run by today.

The company continued to grow and in doing so began to acquire larger equipment and hired knowledgeable landscape designers, construction professionals, horticulturists, and customer service representatives along the way. After serving the Maryland and Washington DC Metropolitan area for more than 32 years, J.B. Kline handed the business over to his son and long-time landscape professional, Brian Kline.

Brian’s primary focus is maintaining customer relationships while integrating the company’s family values at JB Kline Landscaping. Brian has been instrumental in guiding his co-workers to always follow the company’s core values. His experience and dedication to outside peer groups in other industries has enabled him to bring a unique perspective to the management and strategic planning for the future of JB Kline. Brian has been with the company since 1998, and took the reins of the family company from his father in 2004.
