Landscape Care Irrigation Manager

Chris Sletten

(612) 669-5012
  • Grew up in northern Minnesota and moved to the Twin Cities in 1991 to go to plumbing school. Worked a summer job in irrigation and decided that’s what I was going to do rather than plumbing. I couldn’t believe I could get paid to be outside all day, see neat places and things and get exercise at the same time. This is now the 26th year of loving what I do for a living.
  • Experience in residential, commercial, Ag, sports field and golf irrigation. Related field course work at the University of Minnesota – Morris, and the Irrigation Association (IA). Several manufacturers' certifications.
  • All aspects of winter operations. Snow!
  • Father of 3 children ages 23,19 and 16 and my little buddy Gus, a Shih Tzu, who believes he is a wolf hound.
  • Enjoy most sports but have a real weakness for our Minnesota Twins. Also have played fantasy football for 15 seasons and actually won a few times.
  • In my free time, I enjoy gardening and overspending my annual flower budget, grilling and smoking tasty meats, and cooking with my girlfriend Dena.
  • I am thrilled to be working with the quality of people that Southview Design employs. Wonderful company on all accounts.
