Rob Sawyer

President & Principal

Rob’s landscape construction industry exposure came early in life through his father’s business as a landscape contractor and retail nursery owner for over fifty years. Rob grew up working with his father and that was the beginning of what is now a long and successful career as a licensed landscape architect. He founded his own Landscape Architecture firm in 1974 with a desire to do what he loves and has been at it ever since.

Rob’s reputation in his profession and in the building industry at large is well-established and he is known for his expert and level-headed approach to landscape architecture and planning solutions. Rob has been the recipient of many industry awards and his hands-on management style has resulted in the development of several key industry leaders.

Rob’s contributions to each project have helped to maintain Land Concern’s reputation as a progressive leader in the industry while producing the highest quality designs and drawings. Rob’s door is always open and he welcomes the opportunity to guide and mentor all of Land Concern’s design teams to help ensure that we meet and exceed our clients’ wishes to the exacting standards that Land Concern has developed.

With a focus on employee development, marketing and client relations, Rob is actively involved on a daily basis with all elements of the firm’s projects.


Land Concern’s employees are experienced landscape designers and technical experts who are highly regarded for their design savvy and sustainable solutions. Working closely with Water Concern LTD, our premier irrigation consultant, Land Concern is poised on the cutting edge of design and irrigation technology at a time when budget and conservation solutions are increasingly crucial to the overall success of landscape architecture and design.
