Chris began his career in the Turfgrass Science industry when he was seventeen years old. He was hired as help for a Summer at Woodway Country Club in Darien, CT. While he was primarily looking forward to fresh air and sun while working, he became fascinated with the extensive science that was behind the maintenance of grass at such a high level. He had been mowing his home lawn since he was twelve, but had never realized just how much there was to it.

Chris enrolled at Penn State University based on the stellar reputation of their Turfgrass Science program. While there, he spent Summers working in Turfgrass Pathology research, and at a Jack Nicklaus Signature Golf Course in the Pittsburgh, PA area. In 1994 he received a B.S. Degree in Turfgrass Science and returned home to Connecticut as the Assistant Superintendent of Rockrimmon Country Club in Stamford.

Peter Teed began his career in lawn care at 18 when he joined a National Lawn Fertilizer Corporation as a lawn service technician. In his first year of employment he was mentored by a co-worker with an Agronomy degree and Peter learned the science of lawn care. Peter’s first 2 years of employment were spent servicing lawns in Fairfield County and learning “hands on” about different types of soil, grass and the proper applications for both.

While he enjoyed making people’s lawns beautiful, he came to realize his true calling was meeting with and speaking to his clients. In his third year of work he was promoted from service to service and sales and was named #1 salesman in the country for the next 7 years. Though he was now in a more managerial position, he still maintained his connection to both lawn care service and to his clients.

In 1995, Peter Teed and Christopher Brown began a higher quality lawn care service business named “Grassroots”. Combining Peter’s years of hands-on lawn care experience in Connecticut and Christopher’s Turfgrass Science degree from Penn State University, they created a business utterly unique in the lawn care industry.

The combination of experience and science, the highest level of service and reliability, a well-trained lawn care crew, and a clean, professional image drew loyal customers. The business grew rapidly throughout the state of Connecticut. Customers raved of their lawn care service and proudly told their friends that Peter Teed and Chris Brown had turned their lawn into a gorgeous showpiece.

Several key characteristics made Peter and Chris’ work distinctive and special to customers: personal service, scientific knowledge, and a comprehensive lawn care system. To help communicate this high-end service, Grassroots was renamed “TEED & BROWN” in 2004.
