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!
We have used Jack's for 14 plus years for lawn and snow. Friendly workers. Good service.

Used Jack"s for snow plowing for years, great service! Highly recommend.
Since employing Jack's Lawn Service for the last 3 years, I have found their staff to be professional, competent, and friendly. I appreciate all the services they provide and use both their lawn and snowplow services throughout the year. They do quality work. I especially appreciate all the email updates to tell customers what actions have been taken. If there is ever a question or problem, their staff has quickly answered my request and resolved it. I would highly recommend them to anyone who needs this type of service.
Jack's has been great for plowing. I've got a large driveway on a busy road and used to have issues with last company creating snow banks that made it difficult to get in and out of the drive. Not with Jack's! I couldn't ask for better service.
Consistently good snowplowing service. Have used for a number of years.
After trying a number of snow removal services that didn't Iiv up to the terms of their contracts, I gave Jack's a try. I have been a loyal customer for 7 years now, and can say they show up when they are supposed to, do a great job of keeping my driveway and entry clear, and communicate often. If you are looking for a snow removal service don't hesitate to try Jack's.
We have used Jack’s snowplowing service since we moved to Grand Rapids in 2013. The service has been great and I really appreciate that they send out email updates about when the snowfall reaches the 2” trigger and when they are sending out the plows.

I use Jack's lawn service to help my grandmother and they did not disappoint!Both her and I are extremely satisfied and happy with not just the work that they did for her on her lawn, but I am so grateful to the kind and understanding people at this business. Kimberly is absolutely wonderful and one of the kindest women I've ever spoke to! I highly recommend this service provider! Thank you Jackson service for all you've done for us
We have been customers of Jack's Lawn and Snowplowing Service for several years. We have been more than pleased with their attention to detail in keeping us informed during snow events. They email us with updates whenever it is snowing and it starts to accumulate. They plow after 2 inches have fallen, and they let us know when their trucks will be on the road. Often when there are larger accumulations they use a large snow blower to clear the snow, which keeps big snowbanks from being at the end of the driveway and we have better vision backing on to the road. They were so nice to work with they now do our lawn service!!!
Going into our second year with Jack’s mowing services. They did a great job last year, no complaints.
They plowed my driveway this winter. They did a great job. Last year the previous company dumped a huge pile of snow over my mother's rose bush. Jack's heard my concern and kept it safe!
