About Us

We Care About Environmental Lawn Care.

We live up to our slogan of, “Your environmental choice.” If you are ready to improve your home or business’ outside picture, do not trust your investment to just any lawn care services. Our long-standing place in the community speaks to our ability to give you unsurpassed quality in lawn care and landscaping in the Comstock Park area. The A+ rating we carry from the BBB can vouch for that.

If you’re on the search for lawn care companies, look no further than Alternative Lawn Care. Ever since we first opened our doors in 1989, Alternative Lawn Care has been providing superior lawn care services to the Sparta, MI area. Lawn care is hard work, and anyone that’s doing it needs to truly be passionate. At Alternative Lawn Care, we have that passion. We treat every property like it were our own, taking great care to blow off sidewalks, remove grass from flower beds, remove old mulch before adding new, and even providing landscaping services.

The two owners of Alternative Lawn Care, Dave and Mark, each have degrees. They started out simply doing lawn fertilization in the Sparta, MI area, and quickly moved on to other services such as landscaping, lawn maintenance including mowing and edging, and even pest control. They wanted to have a truly full-service property maintenance business, and that’s what we are today.

Our vast array of services and benefits include:

  • Landscaping
  • Lawn care
  • Blowing off sidewalks and flower beds
  • Fully certified and trained technicians
  • Edging
  • Fertilization
  • Custom tailored programs
  • Stump grinding
  • Guaranteed services
  • Over 30 years of experience
  • Lawn mowing
  • Tree & shrub care
  • Pest control
  • 24/7 snow removal
  • Organic programs
  • Modern and well-maintained equipment

All of our technicians are fully trained and certified; we don’t throw inexperienced workers out in the field by themselves. Our techs spend 6-12 months with us doing edging and other services before they ever touch a lawn mower or stump grinder. We use only the best equipment, sharpening our blades daily and upgrading whenever necessary. Most of our equipment is only two to three years old. We’re constantly on the lookout for better machines, striving to be an up-to-date and full service lawn care business.

At Alternative Lawn Care, all of our services are fully customized to your needs. This includes our lawn mowing as well as our lawn fertilization. Lawn fertilization services are our specialty, and we treat each lawn as an individual. Your grass may require a different type of fertilizer than your neighbor, and your front lawn may even need to be treated differently than your back lawn. We carry numerous types of fertilizer in our vans at any given time, making us among the best lawn fertilizer companies around. Our fertilizers are organic and environmentally friendly. Not only are our products custom-tailored to you, but so are our services. You can take advantage of one application, the full program, and anything in between. We offer weekly, bi-weekly, and even one-time mowing services, all without a contract. We’re experts in the field with over 30 years of experience.

We strive to do the job correctly the first time, every time. But if you should ever have a problem, our lawn care services are guaranteed. We will fix any problems you have at no extra charge, whether they be a lawn that’s not green enough, weeds popping up through your grass, or anything else you notice that isn’t quite right. Customer satisfaction is our top priority. Lawn care in Sparta, MI does not have to be a hassle. Call Alternative Lawn Care today and experience the difference a custom made lawn care program can do for you.

At Alternative Lawn Care, we’re not limited to just lawn care services and lawn fertilization services. We also offer an extensive tree and shrub care program, perimeter pest control, and landscaping. We also offer mole control and grub control, both of which are pests that can really destroy your lawn. Our grub control is applied in the spring and summer, killing grubs and beetles and preventing a problem from occurring or treating a problem that’s already there. Our tree and shrub care program includes fertilizing, pruning, and installation, as well as insect and disease control. We provide full service landscaping including full renovation, repainting walls, waterscaping, and installation of brick patios, stone walls, and more. If it’s outside, we can make it look good. We also offer Bobcat service, hauling away dirt or leveling out land.

Alternative Lawn Care’s services don’t apply to just spring, summer, and fall; we also offer full-service snow removal. Whether you just need the snow plowed away or hauled off with a dump truck, we can accommodate your needs at an affordable and fair price. This snow removal service is a 24/7 service, and can include salting upon request. It covers both sidewalks and parking lots.

Alternative Lawn Care’s slogan is “Your Environmental Choice.” Our products are very safe for families, and many of them are even organic. Please call us today for a free estimate or to find out more about our services.

We stand behind all of our products and services with a full satisfaction guarantee. If there is any problem, we will fix it at no extra charge.
