From The Ground Up – Weller Brothers

When it comes to outdoor living spaces, Weller Brothers Landscaping has the creativity, expertise and customer-focused approach to bring landscape dreams to life from the ground up. From landscape design to year-round maintenance, the comprehensive services offered by Weller Brothers are meant to make outdoor living an easier and fuller experience, no matter the season. To get an idea of just what is possible, they’re showcasing two of their projects in the Outdoor Living Showcase, October 7-8 and you won’t want to miss these incredible designs.

From the natural edging of mature boxwoods to the exacting application of luxurious porcelain tile, each of these homes has undergone a jaw-dropping transformation to not only update the look and feel but optimize the function of each space as well. Thanks to the comprehensive services offered by Weller Brothers, these languishing landscapes became a setting for serenity and a panorama of perfection.

The first project reformed an outdated, neglected pool and deck area into an enchanting retreat that is the perfect setting for both entertaining and relaxing. Plans included replacing the old pool with an inviting, refreshing new one and a home addition that increased upper deck space and provided a covered patio beneath. Because the Midwest sees the best and worst of all four seasons, choosing durable materials is always of great importance. Luxurious, enduring porcelain tiles were installed throughout the upper deck and pool areas to seamlessly blend the spaces in crisp, clean harmony while natural stone stairs have the longevity and look that this design required. Mulch beds provided a beautiful and healthy base for carefully chosen plantings like hydrangeas, grasses and boxwoods.

As important as the look is, functionality is typically the most essential part. Landscape designer, Chad Kasten, agrees.

“Figuring out the functionality of (the space) is by far the most important part of design. Then, it’s figuring out how to creatively use materials to give it a little interest and character to highlight those spaces.”

With that purpose in mind, the team installed low-voltage lighting, extending the usability of this space past sunset when safety and visibility might otherwise be diminished.

Equally as well designed and executed is the second showcase backyard. Featuring a courtyard of diagonally laid pavers with a natural-edged perimeter of mature boxwoods, a covered patio with an exquisite stone veneer fireplace, a Bloc paved walkway, porcelain tile and carefully curated, high-quality appliances and furniture, this design evokes a more formal, East Coast feeling.

Although creative excellence will take center stage during the Outdoor Living Showcase, Weller Brothers Landscaping extends its services beyond simply the design. In addition to creating lush landscapes, they offer services for residential and commercial lawn and tree care, snow removal and even seasonal decorations.

Each service they provide is held up to standards of excellence that lead to an amazing client experience. Those standards are carried out by a team of skilled professionals in the construction, design and maintenance industries that are dedicated to building long-lasting relationships that Weller Brothers has built their business on over the last few decades.

General Manager, Ian Libby, says most of the business decisions are focused on what gives their customers the best experience and how to both create and maintain relationships that extend beyond a one-time design.

“Our big goal is to provide the customer with the best experience. We have a mentality, too, of ‘do what you say you’re going to do when you say you’re going to do it.’”

Showing up in that way for their customers in the Sioux Falls, SD and Rochester, MN areas doesn’t come from hiring just anybody, though. The ability to sustain long-term, positive relationships starts with choosing the right team of people. To grow within a customer-focused company, the internal culture at Weller Brothers believes in fostering career potential, on-the-job training and leading with the idea that every impression matters. And they’ll soon be bringing that positive attitude and experience to customers in the Des Moines area, too.
