Scott L. Byron founded Scott Byron & Co. in 1983 with a passion for landscape and a penchant for customer satisfaction. The mission then, as it is now, was to create unique environments through the offering of a full range of services, including design, construction and maintenance to protect and sustain the integrity of his designs. Byron’s goal is to create the most positive end result for the client, while “making sure the land is properly preserved and the design is complimentary to the architecture and setting”. As the company’s CEO, Mr. Byron has over 40 years experience in design, construction, maintenance, and project management.
Working closely with Mr. Byron, Andrew Otting helped launch the company in 1983. He developed a high-end maintenance division to complement the award winning design/build area of company. Now President of Scott Byron & Co., Mr. Otting is responsible for all aspects involving the operation of the maintenance division as well as, sales, construction, design and strategic planning for company.
What started as a six-person team has evolved into a thriving 275+ member stronghold both in Illinois and beyond. Located in Lake Bluff, Scott Byron & Co., boasts a widespread presence well-known for its sincere passion and detail-driven philosophy.
