  • About Us

  • After more than a decade honing his skills in landscape design and project management, BJ Nordby did what many of us dream of doing. He struck out on his own, creating New Leaf Landscapes & Concrete.

    BJ's journey toward fulfilling this dream began when he was 13 years old working in a Quad Cities garden center. It continued as he studied landscape architecture at Iowa State University before he returned to the Quad Cities where he's spent the last 16 years as a landscaping professional.

    BJ is a member of the American Society of Landscape Architects and is certified by the National Concrete Masonry Association for segmental retaining wall installation. He works with a team of experienced, professional landscapers and concrete installation experts to ensure the quality of his projects.
