New Earth Design & Weston Farms create sustainable landscape for Extreme Makeover: Home Edition
RALEIGH, N.C.- Drawing from one of the richest horticultural communities in the U.S. Maury Beckmann and Preston Montague, of New Earth Design, led a team of horticultural designers to create and install the exterior master plan and garden for the latest episode of ABC's Extreme Makeover: Home Edition.
Beckmann started New Earth Design in order to create magical landscapes that not only look beautiful, but also cater to the individual needs of his clients. "Our designs have the comforts of an outdoor room, but also address energy and water conservation, waste management, wildlife habitat, and food production," Beckmann said. New Earth is not a landscape company; it is a design house that employs a community of artists, writers, craftsmen, ecologists, and horticulturists.
Erin Weston, of Weston Farms in Garner, North Carolina, worked with Beckmann for EMHE. Weston creates inspired works of horticultural art using plant material grown on her farm. Her contribution to the project was a beautiful yet functional backyard oasis using seemingly simple materials like flowering branches, seed pods, and magnolia wreaths. What she produced, however, was the farthest thing from simple, unless described as simply breathtaking.
As a result of their collaboration during filming Beckmann and Weston discovered a mutual desire to continue a partnership. Putting that into effect, New Earth Design moved locations joining Weston at Weston Farms. Beckmann's goal is to expand the home beyond the house; bringing the indoors out. Revolutionizing landscapes, New Earth Design has evolved into something all its own.
The Emmy award-winning reality program "Extreme Makeover: Home Edition," now in its 6th season, is produced by Endemol USA, a division of Endemol Holding. It's executive-produced by Anthony Dominici. David Goldberg is Chairman, Endemol North America. The show airs Sundays from 8:00-9:00 p.m., ET on ABC.
