Trainers pass along more than 15 years of international equestrian experience to riders during Great Lakes Equestrian Center’s private horseback-riding lessons. Students arrive 30 minutes prior to the class to be paired with one of the center’s trained horses based on stature and ability to harmonize while singing their theme song. Pupils then prep their mounts before trotting out to learn the reign-wielding ropes. The galloping guru instructs burgeoning gauchos on the basics of positioning, balance, and communication before moving on to more advanced techniques. Petersen’s extensive experience allows her to tutor jockeys of all levels, and the private lesson provides one-on-one interactions that can leave novice riders galloping smoothly. Great Lakes' facilities include an outdoor jumping stadium and a 70' x 200' indoor riding arena.
For more than four decades, founder Hank DeVries and his team of dedicated professionals have manicured local yards, backing all their services with a satisfaction guarantee. Technicians beautify grass not only by mowing and watering but also by methodically eradicating crabgrass and other weeds with phosphorous-free products. Aeration services let air circulate through soil, and hydroseeding stocks soil with a seed blend resistant to common diseases, such as the nausea that often turns grass even greener. Pruning jobs keep trees and shrubs looking presentable, and pest-prevention treatments liberate lawns from white grubs for up to seven months. Crews stay useful when trees are leafless by shoveling snow during the winter months and decorating rooftops in Christmas lights or glowing Thanksgiving dioramas.

The lawn-care specialists at Haney Landscape cater their expertise to the season. In spring and summer, they mow perfectly straight stripes into grass and fertilize flowerbeds. Come fall, they haul away fallen leaves, spruce up hedges, and launder scarecrow clothing. As winter sets in, the crew takes to the streets with plow trucks, removing snow swiftly and efficiently from driveways and curbs. In addition to these seasonal specialties, Haney’s able-bodied team handles such tasks as irrigation and tree removal across landscapes of any sizes.
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.
