Who Is Grounds Maintenance Services?Todd Ruedt - Owner of Grounds Maintenance Service Landscape & Lawn Service

Everybody has a place they call home. More than a physical location, it’s where they feel secure, grounded and tied in with the community.

For Grounds Maintenance Services, “home” is Brookfield, Wis.

It’s where the family-owned company started in 1999, and still operates. It’s where owner Todd Ruedt grew up, and still lives. It’s where we hire our employees, who take pride in helping their neighbors.

As a deeply-rooted Brookfield business, GMS understands the value that people place on their yards and landscapes. We stay abreast of the latest techniques and technology to keep our customers’ properties looking their best. Our staff is fully trained and certified to undertake any needed projects or tasks.

Above all, our definition of success is building relationships based on communication. Our customers are always “in the loop” about what we are doing for them. It’s a simple formula that goes beyond typical “customer service.”

You see, our customers aren’t just names on an invoice. They’re our friends, neighbors and fellow Brookfield residents. We feel a special bond with them. That feeling shows in the work we do.
