Originally hailing from the vibrant city of New Orleans, Robert Newburger’s roots in landscape architecture can be traced back to his childhood spent working at the Audubon Institute’s Zoo and Aquarium. His artistic upbringing, surrounded by the gardens of his family home featured on the International Garden Conservancy Annual Tour, laid the groundwork for his passion.
Embarking on his career in Landscape Architecture in Southern California, Robert explored the state and national parks, mastering the microclimates of California. His design style echoes the essence of California’s native environments and Mediterranean climates, with occasional tropical influences drawn from years studying rainforests in Central America.
With a profound understanding of native landscapes, nursery industry dynamics, and construction technicalities, Robert leads teams from pre-design to construction and maintenance. His project leadership skills, rooted in collaboration and attentive listening, shine through in his work on residential estates and hospitality projects.
Beyond the professional realm, Robert finds joy in food, music, and outdoor pursuits. Now calling Florida home, he continues to explore and integrate the beauty of native environments into the built environment.
