About Us

Lawn Doctor of St. Mary’s and Calvert Counties, MD is owned and operated by Rich Waite. Rich has lived in Calvert County for more than 20 years. He hopes to make Lawn Doctor a family business at some point in the future, with his wife and five children joining him in the day-to-day operations. He and his family enjoy hiking and camping together, and Rich helps coach softball and baseball, sports his children participate in.

Rich is committed to serving his unique communities with responsive, personal, and professional service. As a local homeowner himself, he is keenly aware of the value of a well-maintained, vibrant, healthy lawn. For Rich, a lush, green lawn “is a great thing to come home to.” It is also the first impression of a property, directly affecting curb appeal and property values.

While generally rural, St. Mary’s and Calvert Counties have both seen significant growth in recent decades. Since 1637, St. Mary’s has been known for its unique and historic combination of Chesapeake Bay tidewater farming, fishing and crabbing. Established in 1654, Calvert County is one of the oldest counties in the US. Major industries in both counties include defense contracting, information technology, tourism and administrative services.
