Growing Creativity Since 1976
Our Company started back in 1969 as Ivan’s Lawn Care. He did mowing, tilling, & snow removal on a part-time basis, an extra job away from his fulltime job of being a diesel Mechanic up until the end of the 1975 season. In 1976; the company was growing, he decided to change the focus, from lawn care to being involved in the building & creating lawns in a local new housing development. At that time, I & M landscaping was started because of the new focus & his son Mike getting involved. In 1976 the business was still a part-time business during the summers when Ivan was teaching at the Vo-tech College & Mike was going to school.
I & M Landscaping became a fulltime business in 1986 when Mike returned from college to join the family business. The business continued to grow in size up thru the 80’s and into the 90’s when they decided to incorporate the business; so in 1991 I & M landscaping became I & M landscaping, Inc. a subchapter S. In 1989 Ivan left the school system, and became full time in the business, another reason for incorporating in 1991, Ivan continued to work & run the business up until his unexpected death in 1999.
Then the business was faced with making changes or no longer existing. So at that time Mike & Jan had to make some decision on how to restructure the business. At that time we set new officer up and set new business goals, and in part of setting those goals, we laid out the type of people we wanted to get involved in the company. In that we started getting people involved within the next year, and now they are key people as we grow. By being able to change thru difficult times I & M is now going & growing strong company; always looking for ways we can better serve our customers and community.
