Kapp's Lawn Specialists have been beautifying yards for more than four decades. During that time, they've perfected a precise system for keeping grass, trees, and shrubs healthy, tidy, verdant, and fertilized. Among an array of services, their seasonal groundskeeping package employs a custom-blended granular fertilizer and treatments for keeping crabgrass, weeds, and revolution-minded plastic flamingos under control. Staff members are professionally trained and certified, and the products they use are all approved by the Environmental Protection Agency to safely fend off insects, plant diseases, and other lawn-related woes.
Whether you're dressing up the front walkway or reinforcing the garden plots in time for fall, a lush bed of mulch can take topsoil to the next level—the top one. When laid properly, the rich complexion helps to reduce soil erosion, suppress weed growth, and retain moisture. When applied in the summertime in temperate climate zones, such as the Midwest, mulch also helps the soil maintain high temperatures further into the fall, allowing preexisting plant life to prolong its beauteous lifespan.
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 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.
