Our humble beginning. Ripke Outdoor began in 2007 with a push mower strapped into the back of a Chevy Impala. Jason Ripke and his brother Derek set out around their neighborhoods mowing and knocking on doors for aeration customers. As business began to grow, Ripke Outdoor was founded and Jason took the business from a part time endeavor to his full time job. Jason listened to his customers and expanded not only his lawn care services, but also added related services that were being requested from customers like you. With the customer at the center of company's focus, the business took a large leap in 2012 when they purchased their first full fleet of mowers in 2012 and they continue to add additional staff and equipment to better serve you today.
