The lawn care industry has changed since Jim Zylstra, founder and owner of Tuff Turf Molebusters, started caring for yards in 1985. Since founding Tuff Turf in 1993, Zylstra has kept pace with technology while protecting the environment with eco-friendly, EPA-tested granular fertilizers and pesticides. Today, he custom-builds riding fertilizer machines, replacing them every other year with more advanced models, and customizes his fleet of trucks so that each is suited for a specific service. Tuff Turf’s staff of eight full-time technicians—which includes two full-time mole specialists and one gas technician—offer a full range of turf-protecting services such as lawn care, animal and insect control, and tree and shrub fertilization. Tuff Turf demonstrates a commitment to safety and sustainability by cultivating associations with GreenCare for Troops and the Michigan Nursery & Landscape Association.
For 40 years, Weed Man Lawn Care has taken environmental stewardship seriously as they help lawns to thrive with a range of safe, eco-friendly fertilization, weed-control, and pest-management services. The company's team of landscaping specialists—whose backgrounds include degrees in turf management and biology, certifications in turf and ornamentals, and years of experience in the green industry—use an exclusive blend of slow-release, granular fertilizers to nourish lawns and to strengthen their resistance against weeds, insects, and telemarketers. Safe, naturally occurring ingredients ensure that children, pets, and lawn gnomes can romp unrestrained on newly treated lawns, and advanced equipment calibrates the proper amount of EPA–approved weed-control product to ensure each lawn gets just the right dosage.

The technicians at Medich Pest Control draw on 30 years of experience when ridding homes and businesses of pests, which means they've seen their share of ants, mice, bees, and spiders. Their years of experience also mean they know the best way to eliminate pests. Their pest-control approach varies with the seasons and includes tactics such as laying out bait, applying repellent, and wiping away webs.
The chimney specialists at Detroit City Sweep unclog flues of soot and other buildup that might be preventing proper ventilation and posing a safety risk. After laying down a protective barrier to prevent damage to carpeting or interior surfaces, the sweep sets about brushing the chimney from top to bottom. Over the course of the visit, which can last up to 45 minutes, he also performs a 26-point safety inspection and, once finished, informs the homeowner when the fireplace is again safe for use. In keeping with the unclogging theme, the team also performs dryer vent cleanings and gutter cleaning, wherein they remove sticks, leaves, and other detritus from the gutter so that rainwater might run off unimpeded. Detroit City Sweep also offers masonry repair services.
