Whisking away bespotted garments and returning fresh garb, Sunshine provides Iowa City with impressively convenient pickup and delivery laundry services. Trundle off apparel for sudsy vacations from anywhere in Iowa City, Coralville, or North Liberty (30 lbs minimum of laundry for pickup/delivery). Services cost $1.50 per pound of laundry, falling to $1 after 50 pounds.

The team also uses eco-friendly cleaning products to ensure services are gentle on pets and kids, handling regularly scheduled cleaning sessions as well as one-off appointments before or after events or for move-in or move-out cleaning.
After the Cedar Rapids Parade of Homes honored Jason Buresh's well-groomed yard with its Curb Appeal award, Buresh decided to capitalize on his landscaping talent. In January of 2000, he established Artistic Landscaping and Lawn Care. Although Buresh earned a formal degree in applied science and agricultural marketing from Kirkwood Community College, his lawn-care education actually started in childhood, when he honed his knowledge of plants and landscape design on his family’s farm. Today, Artistic Landscaping and Lawn Care creates lush, green lawns with aeration, dethatching, fertilizing, seeding, and mowing services. The company also installs greenery and retaining walls to beautify yards or keep out roving bands of lawn flamingos.
