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

Customer Reviews.

I've used their snow plowing services for some time now, they do a great job and are very accommodating of my special requests.
I’ve been happy with the snowplowing, the being on time and come back in afternoon after a heavy all day event,Yes I would recommend them,
They are absolutely wonderful for snow plowing. We have used them for the last 2 years and will be using them this winter.
The edging of the lawn always makes it look so finished.If I make a call to them they will call back.
I was very very pleased with their promptness and they’re professionalism in removing my snow timely this past winter.I would recommend them to my friends and family.
The team at Jack's is dependable, professional and they do a fantastic job! I also use them for snow removal in the winter and love getting the email updates so I know what to expect.
They supplied my snow plowing service 2021-22. I have no complaints about their service.
We have had Jack's for snow removal for a number of years now and have always found them reliable and good communicators of what to expect. We recommend them.
Jack's does my snowplowing and has done a very fine job, they are here once we have 2 inches of snow, and are very quick and efficient drivers, Thank you for the service. Joanne D
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.
I’m very happy with this service. Jack’s is dependable and they take care to do the job right
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.
Excellent, Professional , Friendly , On Time Snowplowing Service With Reasonable Price I Will Use Them Again And Definitely Recommended 👍⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
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!
This is now my 3rd winter season using Jacks for snow removal in my driveway. I really like that they use a tractor to plow instead of a pickup truck with a plow attached. I like the emails I receive from them, each time it snows, just giving an update and the times they plan to be out to clear the driveway. I work from home so I'm fortunate to not have to leave my home early in the morning before they may have got a chance to clear my driveway. The only time I realize sod may have been dug up is the end of my driveway and it doesn't bother me. I think they do a great job. They mostly clear my driveway during the night.
We were very pleased with their snow plow services. We appreciated the emails updating us about when they would come to remove snow!
We use Jacks for some properties that are out of our service area. Great people, good work.
Watch Jack's Lawn Service do an excellent job. Trimmed everything thing down getting school yard ready for winter.
Shari was very accommodating in doing my application for me.
I wanted to share a good review. It’s so easy to write in anger when a business messes up. But when a company does the right thing like providing great customer service and being decent, it needs to be shared. I have my mowing with them and anytime I have asked for a quote for additional services, instead of quoting the most expensive service, I get a real consultation that first suggest the most cost effective way to get what I am asking for. Not only have they done my lawn, I also had them enlarge my concrete patio with pavers that is pretty and I have gotten compliments. I work in a position where customer service is key to retaining clients so my expectations are pretty high and they have been exceeding those expectations. Decency, kindness and good service go a long way.
We love Jack's... they help us out with the heavy lifting of snow removal so we can easily handle our little walk to the house. Also love the correspondence trail via email. We always know when to expect snow removal and they openly keep track of how many times they helped us out. Thanks Jack's!
They did a great job cleaning up our leaves in a very short time and saved me multiple weekends of work. Will definitely do again next year.
Great company, staff to work with. Very attentive to questions and/or requests. Every employee interaction has always been pleasant. Lawn looks great! Snow removal is timely!
Have used Jack's for snow and leaf removal for several years, and they've done a thorough job, especially getting out to plow and staying on top of communication about it. Leaf clean up is also well done, especially in those years when early snow or late leaf drop makes clean up by hand a real chore. Workers are helpful and professional. Recommend!
First, used the Fall Cleanup service for the first time this year and they were awesome! Came home to a perfectly vacuumed yard. Not a leaf in sight in the yard, flowerbeds or around the garage. Worth every penny and will use them again next year!Second, have used the snow plowing service for a few years now and have always been pleased. In response to some of the other more negative review issues; yes, I too would love to have them take a double swipe at my drive for a cleaner drive but, with my single lane driveway, the service is just for one drop and drag and that’s it. Also sometimes the snow is deeper than 2” at MY house (lot of drifting down my drive) and sometimes, in heavy snowfall conditions, I have had to leave for work before the drive was plowed but I understand that unfortunately it is not my personal plowing service and there are other factors that are considered. I have tried other companies in the past and their service was no different. So ideally I agree with you, I wish it could be ‘more’ but I feel that Jack’s tries to provide the best service they can, for all customers, and I believe the price is very reasonable. I have recommended them to numerous friends and they too have been happy with their services.Fall cleanup and shoveling are at the bottom of my want-to-do list so I’m sticking with Jack’s to handle those items so I can have more time to do better things.
Jacks does an amazing job. Our expectations were totally exceeded.
The guys were quick and thorough at Fall Cleanup. We hadn't touched a single leaf before they came and had a spotless yard afterward. Every year we look forward to having one of the most leaf-free yards on the block because Jack's does the work for us.
I have had Jacks for my lawn service, Snowplowing, and fall cleanup for several years. I have been happy with the jobs they have done, especially the fall cleanup. They even came back a third time to pick up the extra leaves when I asked. Snowplowing is done early enough so the busses can always get in and out of my driveway by 8:00 AM. I’ve been very pleased with the service they provide.
I am so excited that I found Jack’s Lawn Service! They took great care of my yard all summer and came twice to do a very thorough fall clean-up! I have already signed up for snow removal service and will certainly use their lawn service again next spring/summer.
I've been using Jack's for a number of years now. This year's fall cleanup was the most thorough yet. I will continue to contract snowplowing, lawn mowing, and cleanup from them.
Very timely and friendly service. Have used them for both snow plowing and lawn mowing (spraying for weeds and fertilizer for grass).
Never disappoints! Timley service with great employee's! Tim is very professional and understanding of my requests.
Love Jacks! Tim makes sure my driveway is clean each and every time I come home. A++ work! 🙂
Have been aclient for decades. Prompt service, driveway is well plowed, attention to details like the mail box and keeping the end of driveway piles down to where you can see before exiting driveway.
Been using Jack's for various services for years now. Always quality service and their continued communication is helpful as well.
I have been a customer of Jack's for the last 5 years. I have been pleased with my snow plowing service. His prices are competitive with other plowing services. He has done a good job of clearing my driveway and prompt in plowing my driveway.Linda Miller
First time, never check with any one else. We love the service, we’ll be back next year. Thanks for the wonderful service.Did’t Know about the e-mail service for updates,luv them.Bob & Barb Pulaski
I have had Jack's snowplowing for the last six years. They do a great job at a reasonable price. I appreciate the email updates that let me know when they will be out next during a storm.
