For almost two decades, Peterson Lawn has provided lawn care services to residential and commercial properties in Minnetonka, Eden Prairie, Edina and the surrounding areas. We offer mowing, fertilization, weed spraying, bush trimming, gardening and some light landscape work.

At Peterson Lawn, we understand the importance of having a yard with lush, green grass that is neatly trimmed. That is why we hire experienced lawn crews who love what they do, and are dedicated to making your yard look the way you want it to.

If you’re looking for quality, affordable lawn services in the western Twin Cities suburbs, please stop by our shop near downtown Hopkins, or contact us at 952-252-3301 for a free estimate.

Employees

Tom - headshot 2

Tom Peterson

Owner

tom@petersonsalt.com

Tom is the owner of Peterson Lawn Services (est.2000) and our sister company Peterson Salt & Water Treatment (est. 1987). This company stemmed from his personal interest in plants and landscaping, and it has now grown to include a gardening team and four mow crews. Tom oversees operations of both businesses and does a lot of work for us—both in the office and out on site. At home, Tom enjoys walking his dog, grilling, and going to estate sales. He’s known best for his love of sports radio, working outside—and emojis.

Gilberto

Gilberto

Lawn Crew Foreman

Gilberto has been a lawn care legend at Peterson Lawn Services for over a decade. Gilberto responsibly manages our four lawn crews and has helped grow our business immensely. His keen eye for perfection, leadership skills, and solid dedication are unmatched in this industry;  our clients are enamored by his consistent excellence. He’s not just cutting grass–he’s making art! (Fun fact: Gilberto is the only employee here with his own personal fan club)

Nick

Lead Landscape Designer

Landscape designer Nick is a recent University of Minnesota alum with a Bachelor’s of Science degree in Plant Science and Chemistry. Nick studied plants in the Peruvian jungle last spring, but we know his first summer at Peterson Lawn Services will be a more exciting adventure, obviously. When he’s not making lawn estimates, providing labor on site, or training in new landscapers, Nick gushes to the office staff about his undying love for plants and cookies. We think he’s a keeper!
