Meet the CB Team
Chris - Owner
As a lifelong resident of Maple Grove, CB Services Owner, Chris Baker attended elementary school and junior high in the Osseo Area School District. He is a graduate of Maple Grove Senior High (class of 2003). After graduation, Chris gained valuable hands-on experience working for a local outdoor services contractor, as well as working as a paid on-call firefighter for the Maple Grove Fire Department.
In 2008, while enrolled at the local technical college for a degree in fire science, Chris started a CB Services as a part-time business. His goal was to provide great services to family and friends, who would soon become loyal clients. As the years went on, his client list grew, as did their request for additional services. Realizing that he not only enjoyed working outside, but also working with a fantastic group of clients, he upgraded his business to full-time status in 2011. Over the years, CB Services has evolved from a part-time start up into a full-service lawn maintenance, irrigation, and landscaping company.
Chris and wife Natalie, married since 2010, are the proud parents to two very active kids, Zachary and MacKenzie. Chris serves as a paid on-call Fire Captain with the Maple Grove Fire Department. When he isn’t busy providing great customer service to clients or chasing after his kids, he enjoys catching a Twins game, sitting by the bonfire, or just getting the most out of the short months of the Minnesota summer weather.
At the end of each day, Chris reflects on all the great things that his CB Services team has accomplished and it makes him very proud.

She is responsible for bookkeeping, appointment scheduling, client relationship development, and a wide range of administrative assignments. Nicole’s background, along with her organizational skills and attention to detail, keep the office on track and running at high performance. She is excited to see CB Services grow within the community and continue to build strong customer connections!
Nicole grew up in Maple Grove, MN. She currently lives in St. Michael, along with her husband, Dan, and their dog, Rocco. In her spare time, she enjoys being outdoors, whether she is hiking, biking, disc golfing, or ice skating. She is also very grateful for time spent with family and close friends.
Andrea - Office Assistant
Andrea, another one of Chris’s favorite sisters, has worked at CB Services since 2014. Andrea joined the team as Office Assistant, adding to the day-to-day successes of the growing business.

We have finally thawed out from the latest polar vortex. However we continue to see the stories from Texas on the nightmare of broken and frozen pipes. There is a valuable lesson for us to learn too. If you have an irrigation system, now is a great time … [+] More
