Adding new life to your world 

Judy DePue, ownerJudy De Pue is the owner of New Vistas Landscaping and has been designing landscapes around Elkhart County and the surrounding area for 35 years.

Judy began her professional career in the field of art in the mid 1970’s as a public school art teacher in Goshen, also teaching classes for the Park Department and Goshen College when her children were young. By the early 80’s, Judy turned her artistic talents to landscape designing and started the company called New Vistas Landscaping.

By the late 1980’s, Judy De Pue received her Horticulturalist certification with the Indiana Nursery and Landscape Association, followed by her Pesticide license to treat ornamental trees and shrubs. Then in 1992, Judy became a “certified designer” under the Association of Professional Landscape Designers. Having participated on the national/international Board of Directors for this organization for a total of 9 years, Judy served as the 2006 president for this 1200 member association. In 2008, Judy was awarded the title of “Fellow” for her years of service to the Association of Professional Landscape Designers.

Judy De Pue FAPLD specializes in creating unique designs based around each separate client’s needs and wishes. She hopes that her designs continue to grow and look pleasing for at least 20 years with minimal pruning.

New Vistas’ clients range from individual families, to churches, schools, and other non-profit organizations as well as businesses. Judy and her staff over the years at New Vistas, have designed both for do-it-yourselfer clients and for clients where New Vistas did the installation work.

Beginning in 2016 Judy De Pue began the first step of semi-retirement. New Vistas returned to a design and consulting business like it started out in the early years and discontinued the installation of landscapes. Judy can still provide plants delivered specifically for a job if requested and stake out jobs or supervise do-it-yourself clients as needed.

Judy is looking forward to having more time for her hobbies of working on the landscaping in her own yard, and volunteering at Creekside Church of the Brethren, especially in the public Prayer Garden on site.
She and her husband, Stephen, try to be encouraging to their adult daughters, one serving as a mother tongue educator in Malaysia along with her husband and young family, and the other serving as a clinical trial nurse in the IU Goshen Cancer Center.

Judy De Pue FAPLD has always worked at striving to make this world a better place to live in. Her listening ear, creativity, and God’s guidance have helped New Vistas Landscaping persevere through the years, as she specializes in bringing some of God’s beauty into the everyday lives of our community.
