History: Then & Now
In 1971, Forrest Sargent began Sargent’s Landscape Nursery, Inc. on a small lot near what is now HOM Furniture. Five years later, the business moved to its present 18th Avenue NW location. Today this location, Sargent’s North, is home to our business offices, landscape design, installation and maintenance team, 40 acre tree and plant nursery and north garden center. In 1985, our second retail store opened on 2nd Street SW. Then in 1992, we purchased Colours Flower Market to provide a full-service floral department from within the Sargent’s on 2nd Garden Center.
We are proud to be an active member of Rochester community. We look forward to assisting with your gardening, landscaping and floral needs.
Whether you are visiting one of our two Rochester garden centers, fully re-designing your outdoor living space or simply having a tree planted, we are confident that you will always find our employees to be friendly and professional. By focusing on service, top quality plant material and gardening related items, our business has steadily grown to become a key supplier of green goods and services in Southeastern Minnesota.
With a fifth-generation already planning to “work in the nursery” when they grow-up, Sargent’s Landscape Nursery, Inc. looks forward to providing great plants, excellent customer service and creative designs for many generations to come. Today, Sargent’s Landscape Nursery, Inc. is owned and operated by Forrest and Faye Sargent and their son, Nick, and his wife, Nina.
