Des Moines, known as the Hartford of the West, is a town focused on revitalization and providing family-friendly activities year round. It seems as if there is a new festival each month, and residents flock to them.

Are you a crimson and gold or black and gold fan? That might be one of the first things to decide if you take up residence in Des Moines. The NFL has nothing on college football, and we love football. Cyclones vs. Hawkeyes - that’s the big question here!

The only thing better than college football is hockey. Some might call us crazy, but the Buccaneers really ARE the best hockey team around. If you don’t like hockey, we understand. Des Moines residents are some of the most accepting people on the planet, which is why we host one of the largest Pridefest celebrations each year to celebrate everyone!

When you’re hungry, hop down to Fong’s to devour some of the best pizza around, or try a burger at Zombie Burger. We love our food around here, along with our beer. Trying different beer is a competition we could win; try 120 different ones at El Bait Shop. Raccoon River Brewing Company is a local brewery that we love.

Beer isn’t your thing? That’s okay! Try some scotch at Royal Mile.

Our love for food is why Des Moines has some of the BEST farmers’ markets around. The Downtown Farmer’s Market hosts over 300 vendors every Saturday from May to October. Farming and gardening is part of the gig here. Better Homes and Garden thought so as well, that’s why their test garden is in Des Moines. You can check out the Greater Des Moines Botanical Garden as well if you want to see out local flowers and native plants showcased for their beauty.

Des Moines is a happening town that keeps getting better each year. With everything happening in town, taking care of your lawn is one of the last things on your mind.

That’s where LawnStarter comes in, so let us handle all of your lawn care needs. Let me explain how it works. You give us the essential details, like your address and how frequently you want a professional to mow your lawn. Select a start date, and we will take care of the rest.

One of the top professional lawn care companies in Des Moines will come to your home and take care of your lawn maintenance. You can also opt to add opt-ins, like landscaping and tree trimming. Everything is managed through a handy mobile app.

Let us take care of your Des Moines lawn so you can enjoy the best life.
