Throughout his education, Dave was always interested in design.  He attended Downers Grove South High School where his teachers inspired his passion for design.  Dave decided to attend Iowa State University, where he earned his bachelors degree in Landscape Architecture in 1989.  For 5 years after graduation he worked as a landscape designer in one of the largest firms in Iowa, where he was able to develop a much more extensive knowledge of the landscape industry.  
In 1994 he found his new home here at Drescher Landscaping, Inc.  Since that time his design abilities and his knowledge of proper construction techniques have grown considerably.  He continually attends seminars and classes in order to learn new and innovative way to create the inspired designs that our customers expect. Dave feels that his number one attribute is his ability to develop a strong relationship with his clients.  One of Dave’s mottos is ”Landscaping is not just a job it is an adventure”.
Dave has lived in Woodridge most of his life. He has been married to his wife since 1991 and has one daughter.  Dave has three obsessions in life: his family, landscape design, and custom woodworking (maybe, the occasional round of golf).

David Sawdo

President of Drescher Landscaping, Inc. since 1997.  Kurt’s parents began Drescher Landscaping in the early 1970’s and incorporated in 1975.  Having grown up within the family business, Kurt has gained the experience of many years.  Fred Drescher, Kurt’s father, used to take Kurt out on projects and to meet with clients since he was knee high.  Running tractors and digging in the dirt is what a kid loves.  The experience of labor in the industry is unequaled.  Hands on training can not be purchased.  Fred started teaching his son when he was old enough to hold a water hose (and not get all of it on himself.)  
Those many years of experience lead Kurt to try something new.  In 1991, Kurt graduated cum laude from Vanderbilt University with a degree in Electrical Engineering.  But Kurt quickly felt the pull of the landscape industry.  He came back from college and has since worked full time with the company.  
Kurt has lived in Hinsdale his entire life.  He is a husband and father of four young children.  His immediate family is in the area also.  He is an active member with the parish of St. John of the Cross church and is also involved in community affairs.  His time away from work is devoted to his family, his personal faith and his community.
