About Us

How First due started

We are a small, local, business from Greencastle, PA, established in 2017 by Matthew Baer. While he worked as a career firefighter in the Northern Virginia area, he started First Due as a business on the side. In May of 2020, Matt left his fire service career to focus on First Due Lawncare and Landscapes, LLC solely. Since then we have grown immensely, and we now regularly service residential and commercial clients in Franklin and Cumberland Counties in Pennsylvania and Washington County, Maryland. We are owned, operated and employed by First Responders, with extensive training and experience in handling equipment and safety measures. Hey, you rely on us on your worst day, you can definitely rely on us to help make your day better! We offer over ten years of experience in: lawn care maintenance, landscaping and hardscaping services, overseeding, lawn fertilization, weed control and mulch services, all at competitive rates.
