As a small, women-owned firm, PB&Co is committed to furthering landscape architecture and its interrelationships between art, architecture and the environment. With a diverse staff that includes licensed professionals, design staff, and administrative support personnel, the firm works on a wide variety of projects. Through a teamwork-based approach PB&Co’s volume of work – typically 50-60 active efforts – spans commercial, civic, institutional and residential typologies. For every effort, the firm draws on the design philosophy Pamela Burton established forty-two years ago, but with the imprint of individual interests and the collective desire for environmental accountability.

PB&Co is dedicated to fostering a collaborative working relationship which begins with respect for our client’s needs. Our approach centers on listening attentively and being responsive at all levels of the team, which are structured to remain on projects from concept through completion. This ensures our staff carries institutional knowledge throughout the process and provides the highest levels of consistency and service. Throughout the process PB&Co utilizes the latest drafting and communications technology to support a 100% digital workflow for interdisciplinary collaboration. As all projects move increasingly to Building Information Modeling platforms, the firm has placed a priority on supporting a collection of software and methodologies that includes AutoCAD, Rhino, SketchUp, Bluebeam and the full Adobe Design Suite.

As a firm, PB&Co is dedicated to the health, sustainability and wellbeing of both people and the planet, and we apply ourselves only to those projects that we feel are a good fit with these core values. As a result, the firm’s landscapes possess a timeless quality that balances fresh approaches to placemaking and form with native plant materials and hardscape elements that consider long-term impacts on the project and environment. Our longstanding commitment to sustainable landscapes considers conservation of resources, limiting water and energy use, and reducing overall carbon footprints.
