Nick Aceto, PLA, ASLA
Nick was born and raised in Maine, where rich coastal New England heritage meets unfettered wilderness. Nick works for SCA as a contract landscape architect and is based in Portland, Maine where he is a principal of Aceto Landscape Architects. Nick's approach to design stems from his hands-on construction experience coupled with a deep passion for design. Nick attended Colorado State University's 5-year Landscape Architecture program before working as a designer for several large and small design firms across Colorado. Nick endeavors to approach each project through the lens of the vernacular while simultaneously testing the definition of the built landscape, community, and garden. Nick has worked on a uniquely wide range of projects from community development to garden design. One of Nick's favorite quote is from Andres Duany: "The loss of a forest or a farm is justified only if it is replaced by a village. To replace them with a subdivision or a shopping center is not an even trade."
