About Us

Viking Bros. was founded in 1991 by John Christenson, William Wright and Paul Christenson. We started doing fall cleanups for customers by raking the leaves by hand and loading them into an old 1975 ¾ ton dump truck that we chipped in $500 each to buy. From those humble beginnings we have evolved to a fleet of trucks and landscaping equipment servicing a wide area of operations in the State of Wisconsin and beyond.

Our business is located in the Town of Ashippun on the family farm founded in the 1860’s.

John continues to run the business. His resume includes: Serving in the Army, Army Reserve and WI National Guard w/Army Achievement and Commendation Awards; BBA in Business from UW-Milwaukee; Certified Pesticide Applicator Licensed in the States of Wisconsin and Illinois; NARI, LICA and BBB Member; Member of St. Olaf’s Lutheran Church; Past Master of Neosho Masonic Lodge #108, Husband and Father of 3 Children.

Viking Brothers now employs several trained crews for handling everything from weekly lawn care, creating and maintaining inviting landscapes, designing and building hardscapes – retaining walls, pathways, patios, firepits and more – and efficient snow removal.
