Specializing in full-service landscape design, landscape installation, and helping customers who enjoy doing the landscaping themselves with creative ideas, we continue to build on our business that first opened in 1999. Terry and Pat Hastreiter, along with children Ben and Angie, all work together to operate this family-owned business.
We have expanded our growing operations purchasing 35 acres on the corner of Coddington and Burnham in Southwest Lincoln, so we are growing our own trees, shrubs and perennials in that area of town and taking appointments for landscape design help.
With over 50 years in the nursery industry, Terry has loved running NE Nursery & Color Gardens with his family best. Terry’s role in the company is focused around growing the best quality plants, shrubs & trees our clients can find. Outside of the business, Terry loves to fish, hunt and play with his grandchildren.
Pat and Terry have been married over 40 years, so you can imagine the experience she has, working hand-in-hand with Terry over the years. Pat’s role in the company is focused on customer relations and accounting. Pat loves gardening, reading, and as with Terry, she can’t get enough of her grandchildren.
Ben has been in the industry for over 25 years, working in landscape, retail, as well as commercial and residential bidding. He has taken on the role of President, as he now oversees the company while maintaining sales. Ben has a beautiful wife, Charity, twin boys, a girl and one more boy to make 6! Ben loves to hang out with his friends, modify his landscape, and spend time with his family.
