Absolutely great work! They took their time and it is greatly appreciated. They were so quick that when we went to grab them some water bottles and they had already left. Thanks again, guys!! : )

Landscaping Made Simple in Des Moines.

The people of Des Moines love the city for its award-winning festivals and riveting farmers market. Locals can join 25,000 shoppers at the Downtown Farmers Market and visit more than 300 vendors. Enjoy an afternoon exploring Des Moines' Historic Court District while shopping for locally grown produce and handmade works of art. The market features farmers, producers, bakers, and artists from 50 counties across the state as well as live music. In 2013 and 2014, The Daily Meal ranked the Downtown Farmers Market the second best farmers market in America.

Des Moines is an honored recipient of the World Festival and Events City Award given by the International Festivals and Events Association (IFEA). Every year, more than 1 million people attend the Iowa State Fair for fun, excitement, and adventure. The fair is one of the country's oldest and largest agricultural and industrial events. Take the family to see over 100 different animals, 500 exhibits, and more than 70 delicious foods eaten off a stick. You can even see the famous Butter Cow made up of 600 pounds of pure cream butter.

The Des Moines Arts Festival is another one of the city's most respected festivals. The festival hosts the Nation's top artists and has been awarded the Grand Pinnacle Award from IFEA. The outdoor festival educates its audience on how to enhance an even further appreciation for the arts. The event attracts more than 200,000 excited attendees each year.

If you're looking for a quiet space to relax and unwind, the perfect spot to visit is the Gray's Lake Park. Locals love to go paddle boating and fishing after having a small picnic by the lake. Enjoy a run or bike ride along the path. Even your dog will relish a leashed walk around the park. Sit back and take delight in the open space and peaceful nature that Gray's Lake Park has to offer.

Thank you
Angela B. - Sep 19, 2020 - Des Moines, IA
Jeremy mowed my lawn for the first time and I was very impressed. One man mowed the yard and one man trimmed the yard. Both did a very good job. I hired this company several weeks ago but each time they were to mow they would email me and say that either because of the weather or because it had been so dry they would not be cutting the grass. Very impressive and informative. I appreciate the timely communication.
