Peter Lewis- Owner
My love and enjoyment of the outdoors began at an early age with participation in school sports, golf, fishing, hunting, and exploring. I knew early on that a cubicle would not be for me. Completing my Associates of Science degree in Turfgrass Management at UMass/Stockbridge School of Agriculture took me on a path of golf course management for the next 17 years, with 10 years as a golf course superintendent at a private country club in Connecticut. I moved to Maine in 1996 and worked for O’Donal's Nurseries in Gorham, ME and Westerly Winds in Westbrook, ME before starting Lewis Brothers Landscaping with my brother Pat in 1997.
Some of the highlights of my career include providing a venue for PGA qualifying rounds, championship conditions daily, coordinating the design of the front nine at Sunset Ridge Golf Course in Westbrook, ME, and the landscaping of the campus grounds, farms, and guesthouses, as well as the design/construction of the Public Garden at Pineland Farms.
After 24 years in the landscaping profession, I still enjoy the ever changing sites and clients I and my staff are able to work with, bringing our experience in making landscape desires a reality.
"Lewis Brothers was able to see the big picture and exactly what was needed to achieve it. As a result, our drainage problem was fixed in a faster and more efficient manner then we ever dreamed. Thanks, Lewis Brothers!"

James Taylor- Office Manager
I am a Maine native. After graduating from the University of Maine at Orono, I attended the Art Students League of New York and was an artist in residence at the Jane Burr House (the Woodstock Artists Association). I continue the process of creating art as a print maker today.
Some of my earliest memories are of my grandmother's flower garden. I truly have a passion for gardening and now create flower beds and borders at my home in Portland.
I am pleased to have the opportunity to be a member of Lewis Brothers Landscaping staff.
Chad Michaud - Project/Equipment Assistant
Working to enhance and improve the environment around us is a passion of mine. As a young man, I began a lawn care business of my own in northern Maine, then owned and operated a property maintenance business in North Carolina. I'm pleased to be back working in the soil of southern Maine with Lewis Brothers Landscaping which allows me to use my skills as a heavy equipment operator while working with a great team to plan and develop specific land and hardscape design.
Ryan Provencher - Hardscape Foreman
I’m from Aroostook County and graduated from Caribou in 2002. My work experience consists of mostly landscaping and masonry, with some factory jobs. I’ve always been a hands on kind of guy and learned a strong work ethic at a very young age. After years of honing my skills in landscaping and masonry, hardscaping seems to come to me naturally and I enjoy it very much. To me, putting in a good, hard day’s work is gratifying and rewarding plus I love the outdoors and like to stay active. I enjoy fishing, hiking, swimming, camping, and just being outside in the sun, getting fresh air and exercise. Lewis Brothers Landscaping is a fantastic company to work for and has provided me with the opportunity to let my talents truly shine. I take pride in every job and find it fulfilling as I get to be a part of transforming our clients’ homes for themselves, family and friends to enjoy for years to come.
"Grateful as always for your hard work and stellar service. Seriously!"
Matt Ficano - Spring Clean Up/Mulching & Vehicle Care Foreman
I grew up being outdoors in upstate New York and have been familiar with hard work since I was young. At fifteen years of age, I was mulching at my house and my neighbors as well. After moving to Maine in the fall of 2020, I started performing construction work in Portland, Falmouth, Lewiston, etc. I have done a lot of physical labor on job sites and am now bringing that brought that hard working mentality to Lewis Brothers Landscaping.
I grew up in Chester County, PA, about a half hour outside of Philadelphia. I have always loved the outdoors and became an Eagle Scout when I was 17. At 19, I moved into the city to work with I.A.T.S.E Local 8 Stagehands and worked my way up to traveling the country putting on concerts and events. Besides putting on some of the largest festivals in North America, I have worked construction, demolition and home. I have lived in 6 different states/3 countries to date and enjoy meeting new people and experiencing different cultures.
Raised in Maine, I have found that I enjoy being outdoors in any facet whether it be working or leisurely activities. Growing up, I worked on small family farms and enjoyed working outdoors and seeing work progress/materialize into the final product. Working hard and efficiently has always been something that I have valued. Lewis Brothers is an environment for these values to come together, and I enjoy working with the current staff. I am grateful for Lewis Brothers for letting me join the team. I am excited to learn along the way!
It brings me joy to work outdoors with plants and soil. My family has been gardening in some form since before my time, so it feels natural to work with the earth. I bring varied experiences ranging from a private estate gardener to a park ranger so I can appreciate the big picture as well as the details of gardens. Maine has been my home for the past few years, and I've come to love the varied landscape it offers.
