GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. – DJ’s Landscape Management has made another effort to go “greener” by purchasing three new Toyota Prius hybrid cars. After doing research, they found that the Prius scored well in all areas that were tested. These vehicles will help DJ’s reduce its fuel costs and reduce their carbon foot print. 

"At DJ's we are continuously searching for ways to make our processes greener,” said President D.J. Vander Slik. “Although we are probably most recognized by our bright red trucks and equipment, one way we have decided we can do our part to have a more positive impact on the environment is to replace our client care trucks with the Toyota Prius hybrid car. As caretakers of the environment, we naturally want to do everything we can to keep our planet healthy."

DJ’s has been serving clients for 13 years and is know in West Michigan for commercial property management. Their grounds management services include landscape maintenance, lawn/tree care, landscape design and build, irrigation services and snow and ice management.
