About Us

White Oak Studio is a full-service landscape architecture firm in Houston Texas. We are committed to the creation of positive outdoor environments that nurture and inspire people and improve and uplift communities.

Our practice of landscape architecture ranges widely. We enjoy the challenges and variety of projects from small-scale gardens to commercial landscapes to parks and institutional landscapes to long-range master planning.

While White Oak Studio is small enough to allow hands-on involvement by the principal in each project, we also have extensive experience with large public and private projects requiring the skills of multi-disciplinary teams. We enjoy working with teams of professionals committed to the creation of beautiful, sustainable, responsible human environments.

White Oak Studio was established in 1996; the firm is a Texas Corporation: James Patterson Associates, Inc. d.b.a. White Oak Studio Landscape Architecture.
