One of the Garden Show’s first landscapers is back to compete.
NewLand Nursery & Landscaping, owned by Steve Elliot, offers a retail nursery, full-service florist, landscape design and construction, and landscape maintenance.
“The number one thing that we pride ourselves on is the vision to be able to walk onto a site and see potential,” Elliot said. “We listen to our clients, get the information on what they are looking for and then we create the design that fulfills [their vision.]”
And what does “Our Maine Life” mean to Elliot?
“It’s where we go to relax and get away from the hubbub of daily life,” he said. “We will be projecting a more ‘native Maine’ exhibit with less gardening and gardens. There will still be some color. We are detail oriented and we want you to feel as though you are in the Maine woods and at camp.”
The challenge of designing for the Garden Show is one that Elliot knows well.
“You have to build it 15 times in your mind to make sure there’s not one error,” he said. “It’s like putting on a theater production. You prepare and then the curtain comes up and you have to be ready.”
And Elliot and his team are ready for opening night: Friday, April 5
