About Jack's.

Since 1974, Jack's Lawn Service & Snowplowing has been family owned and operated. We are focused on serving residential and commercial properties in the Grand Rapids area. Jack Vander Vennen started the business to make money to put himself through Calvin College. He enjoyed the business so much that he continued doing it after college. When he started it was just a lawn mower, clippers and broom in the trunk of his car.

Jack had three sons: Bruce, Jason and Jeremy that entered the business in 1996, 1999 and 2001 respectively.

  • Bruce attended MSU and GRCC receiving a degree in Landscape Management.
  • Jason attended University of Northwestern Ohio and received a certificate for Automotive Repair.
  • Jeremy attended GRCC and completed the Residential Construction class.

All three boys ended up joining the business. In 2012 Jack retired selling the business to his 3 sons.

With a seasonal staff of 20 employees -- the majority of whom have been with the company for several years -- the Vander Vennen family carefully screens employees and selects only the most knowledgeable with proven attention to detail.

"When we care for your lawn and landscape needs, it's our family name and pride of workmanship on the line."Bruce Vander Vennen

Jack's Lawn Service & Snowplowing Inc. is fully state licensed and maintains active membership in the Association of Grand Rapids Landscape Professionals, the Michigan Nursery and Landscape Association and the Snow & Ice Management Association.

I've hired Jack's to mow our lawn for a number of years. I'm on a tight budget, so I contract for the basic mowing service, and they do nice work. Being disabled, I don't have to worry about the appearance of my yard. I have also contracted snow removal service from them, at which they are equally dependable.
Jack’s has done a tremendous job for my elderly parents who are home bound. Their yard work crew has been responsive and professional, and they really did a fantastic job this summer with the clean up! They also do the snow plowing and we’ve been very happy with that service as well!
We can count on Jack’s for lawn and snow services to be done well and listen to our needs. Thanks!
