Nominate someone who deserves a free landscape makeover by June 15, then help us bring it to life.

LARAMIE – From now until June 15, people in Laramie can nominate a fellow resident to receive a complete landscaping makeover done by the experts at Tough Guys Lawn Care.

Then, on July 20, everyone is invited to become a “Tough Guy for a Day” and help put the finishing touches on the lucky recipient’s beautiful new yard.

Tough Guys has been in business since 2007. The owner, as well as many of their staff, are longtime Laramie residents who love their community and want to help it stay beautiful and successful. Earlier this year, Tough Guys is under new management and is rededicating itself to serving the Laramie community.

This year, the entire team wanted to do something more to give back, and so their “Tough Guy for a Day” event was born. They hope to make this an annual event in order to help even more Laramie residents in the future.

The idea is to help a fellow community member who is in need or otherwise deserves to be on the receiving end of a service project. Tough Guys wants this gift to “uplift them and enhance their life,” and encourages Laramie’s citizens to nominate anyone they think could benefit from a beautiful new yard.

Residents can nominate someone who they believe deserves this expression of support and appreciation by going to the Tough Guys website and filling out the nomination form. The only requirement is that the nominee must be a Laramie citizen.

When recommending a person for the makeover, nominators can choose whether or not they want their referral to remain anonymous. Between the time the winner is selected and July 19, the crews at Tough Guys will design and lay much of the groundwork on the new landscape.

Tough Guys will donate all materials, design work, and labor involved in the project, and will welcome any and all volunteers that want to help put the finishing touches on the landscape on July 20. Together, we can give back to someone in our community who deserves beautiful, brand-new landscaping.
