Ready to heft furniture and boxes seven days a week, the uniformed teams from Iowa Moving 1 shuttle out to homes or offices across central Iowa. Once there, they load customer-provided moving trucks with the efficiency of an Olympic Tetris medalist, maximizing the use of space while protecting loads with furniture pads and securing them for transit with tie-downs. Though clients provide and drive their own trucks, the movers tote along their own dolly and a set of tools for disassembling beds or taking mirrors off dressers.
Founder James Freeman preceded his storied 30-year career in the pest-control field with an even grander story in the music industry. His bass vocals can be heard in the 1950s hit “In the Still of the Night,” recorded when he was a member of The Five Satins. His illustrious career placed him on stage beside legends such as Chuck Berry, Fats Domino, Little Richard, and Bo Diddley in fabled venues such as the Apollo Theater. Mr. Freeman’s accomplishments have earned him an induction into the United in Group Harmony Association Hall of Fame and a Pioneer Award from the R&B Hall of Fame.

Jaques Lawn Care keeps home landscapes neat and manicured all year long, maintaining yards in every season since 2000. Through spring and summer, its crews canvas lawns with mowers and fertilizer, decimating weeds and aerating grassy soil. As the weather grows cooler, staffers round up piles of leaves and truant scarecrows then return in the winter to remove snow and ice from walkways and driveways.
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.
