Jeffrey Rossen, Founder & Head Honcho
It all started with Koi...
When Jeff was 12 years old, he raised Koi from eggs in an aquarium. Once the eggs hatched, his parents allowed him to build his first pond. Jeff spent five years rebuilding and perfecting the pond before launching his first business, Atlantic Landworks. A few years – and several ponds and gardens – later, Jeff graduated from Virginia Tech with a degree in Landscape Technology. Upon graduation, Jeff worked for the DC area’s two largest landscape companies, absorbing as much information about landscaping and customer service as he could. This knowledge formed the strong foundation on which he built Rossen Landscape. Jeff currently sits on the board of directors of the MD-DC-VA Landscape Contractors Association. In his free time Jeff enjoys spending time with his wife, 3 boys, and menagerie of plants and animals. Piddling around in his pond with a beer remains one of his favorite things to do in addition to fishing, snowboarding, and playing basketball.
