Have Question About Service Contracts?
At Tough Guys, we offer monthly contracts for our lawn care and snow removal services. Our contracts make budgeting easy – you’ll simply pay one monthly rate that’s locked in at the beginning of the contract. You’ll also be able to customize your services based on your needs and how much you want to spend. To make life even easier, we also have convenient payment options, including paying via email or automatic payments.
We offer two different contract options:
- Summer Lawn Care Services – this covers the summer months only, and can be customized to meet your specific needs and budget.
- Annual Property Maintenance – this contract includes services for all four seasons, and can also be customized.

In order to have spring, fall, and winter services, you must be signed up for the annual contract. Your monthly payment will be the same for the 12 month period of the contract.

Our Summer Lawn Care Contract is a 5-month contract that goes from May 1st through September 30th. They only include summer services, such as:
- Weekly and Bi-Weekly Mowing

We also offer the following summer landscaping services:
- Bush and Tree Trimming/Removal (Restrictions apply to size)

Due to the variable nature of these services, we do not offer them in the contract and instead charge our usual hourly rate. However, our contract holders will enjoy preferred pricing and scheduling – just one more advantage that we’re excited to give our loyal customers!
Mowing is a huge part of summer lawn maintenance! At Tough Guys, we offer weekly mowing (every 7 days) or bi-weekly mowing (every 14 days). Each visit includes:
- Mowing of all turf/grass areas
- Trimming around all obstacles, including fencing, edges of turf, trees, signs, etc
- Trimming your alleyway keep within the City of Laramie ordinance requirements (if applicable).
- Blowing off sidewalks, driveways, walkways, and patios, so your property has that crisp, fresh-cut look!
- Bagging and recycling all grass clippings
Mowing services will commence in May and go through September 30th.
Trimming and weed eating involves minimizing the size of weeds outside the normal lawn/turf area that’s covered by mowing. This service is usually used by those of you who own larger properties. However, we offer trimming and weed eating to anyone with weeds that have gotten out of control. Our crew will trim the weeds down, rake the area, and haul off all clippings if needed. Since it can be variable depending on the size of the property, we charge by the hour for this service. It typically is not included in our contracts.
Let’s be honest, pulling weeds is time-consuming and not very fun. So let our team take care of your weed problem instead of doing it yourself! Our team will pull weeds in hard-to-reach areas of your property that we can’t get at with mowers or trimmers. This includes xeriscaped areas with rock or mulch, flower beds, and places where chemicals cannot be sprayed to get rid of the noxious weeds. Give us a call to get on our schedule.
A beautiful, clean-cut tree and/or bush will boost curb appeal and keep your property in tip top shape! With our trimming services, your bushes and trees will stay healthy, won’t overtake your entire garden, and will look great all summer long. Proper trimming will protect their health and ensure that they compliment your landscaping beautifully! We have all the equipment and knowledge to trim them to best fit your property. Once we’re done, our crew will also haul off all branches and leaves to the Laramie landfill, where we recycle them for compost.
Falls in Laramie are always unique! Sometimes we go straight from summer to winter. But for those years where we actually do get a fall, it’s vital to prepare your lawn for the upcoming winter months. Fall preparation will help your lawn and garden be much healthier when spring rolls around.
Our crews are ready to clean up your property to keep it in tip top shape for the fall and winter season! This cleanup also prepares your landscaping to be healthy and thriving during the following spring and summer. During fall cleanup, our expert crew will:
- Rake your leaves
- Clean up leftover debris from the summer
- Blow out and/or rake behind bushes and rock/mulch beds
- Trim down and prepare your bushes and perennial flowers
We are happy to do other services upon request! Let us take care of your property and prepare it for the long winter ahead.
Cleaning out your gutters is no easy chore, and it’s often neglected for that very reason. However, clean gutters are vital to keeping dangerous ice or water buildup away from your roof, walkways, and your house itself. Our Tough Guys can clean out your gutters, keeping them free of leaves and other debris that has gathered throughout the season. We’ll take care of both gutters and downspouts, allowing your gutters to perform and do what they are supposed to do. We can perform this service during your fall clean up!
Aeration is the process of removing small cores of soil from the lawn to allow for better airflow around the roots of your grass. This allows water and fertilizer to reach the roots of the grass more effectively, helping to create a stronger, healthier lawn. We can professionally aerate your lawn, allowing you to more efficiently water and maintain it. We recommend doing this in the spring and in the fall.
Winters in Laramie can be brutal on your lawn and landscape, which is why spring services are essential to prepping them for the upcoming summer season. Your time is valuable, so let our experts at Tough Guys prep your lawn for the summer.
During spring cleanup, our crew will:
- Clear away the debris left behind by the fall and winter seasons
- Clean behind bushes
- Clean up flower beds
- Edge your lawn
- Prep your lawn and finish it with a fresh mowing to encourage consistent growth
- Haul away all debris off your property and recycle them with the Laramie Landfill
If your lawn is in need of a power rake, we’ll also perform this at this time. Power raking removes thatch that might have built up from the previous season so that it won’t suffocate your lawn.

We are licensed by the Wyoming Department of Agriculture as a Commercial Pesticide Applicator. This license is required by the State of Wyoming for all landscaping companies that chemically treat lawns and gardens. We put our applicators through extensive training so they have a deep understanding of what is being applied to your lawn and landscape – and how to do so safely and effectively. Say goodbye to pesky, noxious weeds! Our crews can take care of them, leaving your landscaping in excellent condition.
Broadleaf Herbicide Application
No one likes to see broadleaf weeds like dandelions on their beautifully landscaped lawn. Broadleaf herbicides are safe on Laramie’s hardy grass, but will rid your lawn of those pesky weeds! Broadleaf herbicides are post-emergent, meaning they will kill the weeds that have already surfaced. Their application is most effective if we spray in the late spring/early summer, with a second spray in mid to late summer.
3-Step Fertilization Program
Your grass and plants are dependent on soil for nutrients that allow them to grow and remain healthy all year long! Our 3-step fertilizer program gives your soil the optimal nutrients it needs to sustain your plants during all times of the year. Our expert crew will apply the first spray in the spring, the second one in the middle of the dead heat of summer, and the last one in the fall. Applying fertilizer during these times is crucial for your soil to get the nutrients it needs to help maintain a healthy lawn. We use a sprayer to apply fertilizer, which means you won’t have to worry about watering or allowing your family and pets to continue to use the lawn!
Grass And Weed Killer Application
You pay good money for your landscape, but unsightly weeds can hurt your investment in no time. That’s why our pros here at Tough Guys offer grass and weed killer application! We spray this on areas where there’s no vegetation, such as rock beds, driveways, sidewalks, patios, etc. The herbicide we use is a post-emergent killer, meaning it will kill the weeds and grass that have already sprouted. Because of that, we use it on an as-needed basis throughout the late spring, summer, and fall. This is a great way to keep your landscape that you have worked so hard on in tip-top shape!
We love Tough Guys! They are fast, thorough, tidy, and polite. Seriously amazing. They have done our Spring cleanups, mowed for us, cleared brush, etc. and every time we are so grateful for the awesome job they do.
I’m very satisfied with the work they have done for me and my fiancé.
There’s no way around it: Cheyenne’s climate is tough. Its high elevation and location on the windswept plains means the air is dry, and the wind blows year-round, further dehydrating the soil. Winters can be long and cold, with sudden blizzards that can drop several...
