What Is R.M.L.C.S ?

Raising Men Lawn Care Service is the union of an ordinary yard maintenance service and the commitment to establish an inspiring program to keep our youth (girls & boys) on a positive path while learning and understanding their value in society. RMLS provides free lawn care to our elders, those who are disabled, single mothers and our veterans, who do not have the time, resources and/or money to manicure their yards.

Our T-Shirt System

When your child joins the program, they start off with a white shirt . We have it set up similar to the karate system. For every 10 lawns cut, they get a new color shirt. Once they cut 10 lawns, they get an orange shirt; 20 lawns earns a green shirt; 30 lawns earns a blue shirt; 40 lawns earn a red shirt, and 50 lawns earn a black shirt. Once they reach 50, they become a lot like a black belt at mowing lawns.

Although we are called “Raising Men,” we are also “Raising Women.” Three years ago, I realized we didn’t have as many young ladies joining the program. The few young ladies who had joined were given a “Raising Men” T-shirt and that did not sit well with me. So, I created a sister program to the Raising Men Lawn Care Service called Raising Women Lawn Care Service. Now, when young ladies join, they receive a Raising Women T-shirt.  Since doing this, we have seen a huge increase in the number of young ladies joining.  As the saying goes, “Anything he can mow, she can mow better.”  We are raising men & women! – Founder Rodney Smith Jr
