Cutting Edge Lawn Care originated in 1982. Todd Tindel, a freshman in a northwest Austin high school, started his business with a $25 garage sale lawn mower and grew his business throughout high school and college. In 1990, Todd graduated from Abilene Christian University with a BBA in business administration. With sales of $65,000 his senior year, Todd decided to stay with the business that had brought him this far.
In 1993, Todd developed the company pledge: Customers are first, ALWAYS. As word of the way Cutting Edge Lawn Care respects and treats customers spread, the business grew by leaps and bounds.
In 1999, Todd married Shelley Farrier, third grade teacher at Brentwood Christian School, located in north Austin. In 2002, their first child, Wes, was born. They now live in Round Rock.
Today, at the ripe old age of 43, Todd has more than 28 years of experience in the lawn care business. He manages a staff of 30 employees. Todd quotes all work for customers, repairs sprinkler systems, repairs all company lawn equipment, and schedules the work of all crews. "So far, I've had a great time with the business and my family," Todd says. "I know I have been blessed, because I have been surrounded by so many wonderful people, family and customers."
