We provide mole control in Grand Rapids and a whole lot more – Tuff Turf Molebusters kills moles, outdoor insects, and helps you obtain a weed-free, healthy green lawn.

I started Tuff Turf Molebusters in 1994 and I have been working in the lawn care industry since 1985. Both my wife and myself grew up in Grand Rapids and attended Calvin College. I have a passion for solving my clients' lawn and pest problems. Our success allows me to contribute over $10,000 a year to local charities, schools, churches, military families, and youth sports organizations. We use local vendors and suppliers as much as possible to keep the money in our community.
