Mr. Maintenance started as a small lawn service business in 1986 by Chris and Michele Kruger at south shore.  Servicing homes on both sides of the state line in beautiful Lake Tahoe.  In 1998, Michele became a California licensed landscape contractor and added the Nevada license two years later, so they could add landscape and irrigation installations as part of the services.

Building relationships with our customers over the years have helped our business grow.  Delivering more than we promise has always been our goal and our customers have responded year after year by remaining loyal.  Success and growth continues mainly because our employees are dependable, hardworking, and return every season.

Chris was instrumental in starting the business and left us prematurely in May 2005 to carry on without him.  In 2013, our son, Jesse joined the management staff to help operate the family business.  He grew up with Mr. Maintenance and has really been helping out since he earned his business degree in 2006.  Jesse has now been trained extensively to provide landscape and maintenance estimates. 

From just mowing lawns and a few sprinkler repairs in the beginning to now offering a wide range of installations and maintenance services, we have grown into one of the largest landscape companies located in the south shore area.
