About OJB


The Office of James Burnett was founded in 1989 in Houston, Texas with the primary focus of creating landscapes that transform perspective and evoke emotional responses, creating unique and unforgettable sensory experiences in the garden. Our work is a testament to compositions that reflect a seamless, unified relationship between landscape and architecture. A second office was opened in San Diego, California in 2003. In 2013, we opened our Boston, Massachusetts office.


The Office of James Burnett follows a proven design and planning process in which the client is an integral part. We stay connected, listen and respond to your needs. Through every phase of the design process we stay focused on the site users and their needs. From concept design to construction administration, we know how to work with owners, project managers, architects, contractors and other consultants.


Landscape design is our passion - it is who we are, not just what we do - and that passion is reflected in the spaces we create. We consider all facets of your project, beginning with the first impression and concluding with the finest detail.
