Keith started Kutting Krew Mowing Services in 1991 with two other guys as part of a business project at Ryerson University. The name of the company came from the popular music group in the 80′s. The tri-partnership lasted one season and was disbanded due to creative differences. Since Keith resided in Leaside (with his parents) throughout university, he decided to expand the business north and east from there. Now living in the St Clair / O’ Connor area, his advertisement is as it’s always been – basically word of mouth and occasional targeted flyer delivery. Keith’s other passion, real estate investment, grows every year and keeps him quite busy. He has a degree in Bachelor of Commerce from Ryerson.
Christy met Keith in 1993 and quickly discovered their shared interest in financial management and Star Trek! They married in 1997, but she’s been a part of the Kutting Krew since 1994. In 1998, they bought their first investment property together, a cottage on Minden Lake in Haliburton. Christy had owned property prior (in the United States), but this was their first property together in Canada. A graduate of Ohio State (Go Bucks!) with her Bachelor of Science degree in Education, after many years of field service she has now moved on to mostly office management. In the off-season Keith and Christy enjoy travelling – during Winter 2018 they hit Asia and a couple of smaller trips south!
Garrett joined Kutting Krew twelve years ago! He quickly became an integral part of the company. Each year he puts his stamp on new projects which includes anything from Krew training to hedge manicuring. He also helps with landscape projects, planting, equipment maintenance and debris disposal. If anything above the ordinary is needed, Garrett is the one we rely on. With a true passion for sports (Go, Jays and Raptors!) of all kinds, and having taken journalism and business courses in University, Garrett hopes one day to run his own business. He hails from “The North” – Kenora, Ont. His nuptials to Leah took place in February, 2015 in The Dominican and is now a father to a beautiful baby girl and will be welcoming his second child in 2018! Garrett is also successfully growing his snow removal business in Leaside, Rosedale & surrounding areas.
This year is CJ’s eighth year here at Kutting Krew! He has been a great addition with renewed enthusiasm and an amazing work ethic. He is mostly responsible for grass maintenance and clean-up work. CJ got engaged this past year – congrats! When not working with the Krew, CJ is busy raising his two cats, Uno and Deuce, and spending time with his fiancé!
With eight seasons under her belt and always sporting a huge smile, she is the “attention to detail” queen! Before your request leaves your lips, she has the task completed and cleaned up after. Mostly working in our lawn cutting division, she also shines at flower bed maintenance. Rebecca obtained her diploma in Early Childhood Education and is now mainly working with children – unfortunately for us, we now only have her on a part-time basis. She came to us from Fergus, Ontario, but recently bought a house in Keswick and is getting married this year – congratulations Becki!
Joining us for his seventh year, is Kyle! Extremely hard working and sporting expressive body art, Kyle is always willing to go that extra mile at work. We are extremely proud of him, as he recently completed his degree in psychology from York University. Outside of work he can be found spending time with friends, playing video games, and watching hockey – Go Leafs!
This is Nicole’s third season with Kutting Krew, although not her first season in the landscaping industry. Nicole got her start in landscaping while living in Alberta and quickly realized how much she loved working outdoors. Nicole mainly focuses on lawn maintenance and gardening. However, since she has a background in computer science, her IT help is much appreciated around here and has fallen into the position of “in-house webmaster” and “tech support”. When not working, Nicole is working on honing her programming skills, and raising her Toy Poodle, Stella.
