Christen Daniele Lentz married Al in 1993 and quickly became part of the growing company. Unable to be in the office on a daily basis, she was a sounding board for the business and helped make vital decisions.
Christen learned quickly how the business was run. As the company grew, she saw great potential in Lentzcaping, Inc. In March of 2011, Lentzcaping realized the increased need for her daily participation and presence in the office and Christen was named President. As president, Christen obtained WBENC certification for Lentzcaping and the company officially became a nationally recognized woman owned and operated enterprise.
The business has expanded into a multi-faceted, full service residential and commercial landscape company. Lentzcaping assists utility companies, offering a wide range of services, including Green Infrastructure, Environmental Matting, and Vehicle Access Solutions. Christen continues to grow with Lentzcaping, Inc., and recognizes the company’s position at the leading edge of sustainable solutions for businesses in the greater Philadelphia and area and beyond.
Al Lentz, is the third generation in his family to make landscaping his lifelong profession. Al’s Grandfather, Giuseppe Serogo came over from Italy in 1910, when he was just 12 years old. With a pair of hand clippers and a mechanical mower, Giuseppe started Serogo Landscaping.
Al’s Uncle Tony took over the family business for his father. He was pulled out of the 8th grade to work for Serogo Landscaping. Tony, always youthful and a hard worker ran the business until he was 81 years old. Al started working for his uncle at the age of 15 as a freshman at Archbishop Wood High School in the summer of 1977. It didn’t matter how many hours he and his friends worked, at the end of the week, they were given a $100 dollar bill! It was always a fun job and Al enjoyed working alongside many of his friends over the years. In Al’s family, if they weren’t yelling at you, they didn’t like you! This tough love formed the strong will Al has to help run an enduring business.
Al left the family business to pursue higher education in 1982 and attended Kutztown University, majoring in Business Management. After college, Al followed in the hard-working footsteps of his
Grandfather, Giuseppe and his Uncle Tony and founded Lentzcaping in 1988.
Al enjoys the physical work and the process of growing a business. He loves the challenge of working outside of his comfort zone and learning from the experience. Through his career, he has met
exceptional people and Lentzcaping has taken him places he may have never seen. To Al, the best thing about Lentzcaping is the journey that continues to reach new heights to this day.
