A landscaping firm is putting down roots the Med City by building a new facility in northwest Rochester.

Sioux Falls, S.D.-based Weller Brothers Landscaping , which has operated a large Rochester location for three years, is digging in here with the construction of a new 10,000-square-foot office and equipment storage complex.

Work has already started on the project along the U.S. Highway 14 Frontage Road, just past High Point Church at 4545 North Frontage Road.

“Rochester has been a great market for us. We’re really excited to put down our roots here, said co-owner Brent Weller. “It will give us some great visibility… People commuting back and forth from Byron would be able to miss us.”

Brent Weller, who co-owns the business with his brother Cole Weller, said they hope to have the new facility ready for use by summer of 2022. When it is finished, he will move his team north from their current Rochester site at 2907 County Road 16 SW, near the Rochester International Airport .

“We’re really excited about this. It's a very good, convenient location. It will be a lot closer to our vendors and to our customers as well,” he said.
