Our History

Krintz started from humble, teenage beginnings in 1992 and rose to become one of the top lawn care services in the Greater Lafayette area.

Jim Krintz began the business with just a single lawn mower, working to make some extra money as a fifteen-year-old high school kid in and around the Monticello area. Michelle joined Jim on the weekends as they were dating and would help out. The business continued to grow; Jim and Michelle got married; and both stayed involved in day-to-day operations. Jim is the project manager and is constantly out in the field overseeing Krintz’s various projects, while Michelle is the office manager who manages hiring, accounting, and scheduling.

Our Team

At Krintz Lawn Care, Inc., we believe in family and community. We have a variety of employees, all of whom have something unique and exciting to bring to the table. Get to know the people who work tirelessly behind the scenes to provide top-quality Krintz lawn care services.

Jim Krintz

J im is our owner and project manager. You’ll rarely find him in the office as he is out overseeing crews working on various Krintz projects. He is also our equipment expert and always knows what we need to get the job done.

Jim grew up on a produce farm in Monticello, Indiana called KIDS CORN COMPANY. When he turned fifteen, he went out and bought a lawn mower and mowed lawns throughout his neighborhood to make some extra money.

He continued to mow lawns through college and used the funds to help put himself through school. After Jim graduated, he decided that creating Krintz Lawn Care, Inc. as a full-time business was his best option because of his passion and love for his community and the outdoors.

Michelle Krintz

M ichelle, Jim’s wife, is also an owner and our office manager. She oversees all customer service, scheduling of projects, bookkeeping, and hiring.  For day-to-day operations, she’s the one you’ll likely find in the main office.

Michelle played an important role in our development. Before Krintz Lawn Care was created, she helped Jim with projects on the weekends. After graduating from college, Michelle became instrumental in helping Jim follow his heart and create the company. Their interests and backgrounds made them an excellent team to start the company. While Michelle primarily works out of the office now, she also has landscape design experience and extensive lawn care experience from her early days of helping Jim.
