Since 2000, the Remodelers Council of Greater Des Moines has sponsored the Tour of Remodeled Homes, a journey through area homes that have undergone design and construction transformations. This year’s tour highlights 13 residences of different styles, ages, and price ranges, with projects that ranged from kitchen updates to full remodels. At each stop on the tour, the remodelers will be onsite to answer questions, and most of the sites will also have representatives from the sponsors or suppliers who worked on the projects. All of the featured craftsmen are members of the council, and this year’s flipbook gives a preview of their handiwork.
The fauna enthusiasts at SunGreen Lawncare and Landscaping turn flat, lackluster lawns into scenic vistas with fetching botanical designs. Then they maintain the masterpieces by mowing, fertilizing, overseeding, and aerating landscapes. To keep yards hydrated during sweltering summer months, they install irrigation systems and help spirit water to the root systems with aeration services. They also eradicate invasive plants by trimming tree branches, extracting trunks, and plucking weeds. As soon as snow covers lawns and flower beds, they trade in their mowers for shovels and plows to keep walkways free of ice and loitering snowmen.
