Established in 1983, Scott Byron & Co. is a landscape architecture design, build, and maintenance company with a mission to create “Art in Harmony with Nature”.

Our work together begins where your goals meet our understanding of every aspect of designing, building, and maintaining your outdoors.  All three are equally important to us and we deliver each with the same extraordinarily high level of service to you. That our work will grow and flourish is our commitment to you.

As a company full of Landscape Architects, Horticulturalists, Arborists, and other professionals trained in and attuned to working in and with our natural landscapes, we are pre-disposed to any and all conservation methods and techniques that respect our precious world and its natural resources.  Our company was founded on being out in front, bringing classical design and artistry to the affluent suburbs of Chicago and creating artistic landscapes in harmony with nature.  Now, thirty five years since our founding, we continue to seek appropriate ways to lead and be out front.
