Meet Mike Newman

With over 30 years in the landscaping industry, he has a vast amount of experience in designing both residential and commercial landscaping including installing pools, hardscapes, lighting, irrigation, and unique and creative plant material.

Northshore Nursery

Mike began mowing yards as a teenager and his passion for horticulture and design started from there.

Mike is also a graduate of The University of Tennessee Knoxville with a degree in Ornamental Horticulture and Landscape Design.

Northshore Nursery

Mike's goal for the nursery is to become a "destination" nursery for plant enthusiasts, professional landscape contractors, and homeowners and being recognized for always being on the cutting edge of new up-and-coming plants and landscaping trends.

Mike has one daughter, Morgan, who currently attends the University of Tennessee. Another face you are sure to see around the nursery is Heartly the Golden Retriever who greets all of our visitors with a smile!
