At j. branch, we believe that attention to detail is important when creating exceptional work. Not only do we make our clients needs a top priority - but we also take into consideration the design elements and architecture of your home, location, and overall atmosphere of the space. Landscaping should be an extension of one’s lifestyle and personality. By infusing the needs of the space with the existing surroundings, we believe you can create a landscape that is original, livable, and relaxing. Our number one goal is to create lasting relationships with or clients to serve them for years to come!

Joby Branch Bonnot grew up on the ranchland of Wharton, TX, where he was surrounded by open, green pastures. Joby became interested in landscaping at a very young age before he went on to attend Texas A&M University where he received his BLA in Landscape Architecture in 2003. Joby also studied abroad in Italy where the Italian culture played a big part in his knowledge of landscaping and design.

Joby began his career professionally designing and installing residential landscape for high-end communities in Fort Worth. After making his way to Houston in 2005, Joby utilized his experience working on some of the finest homes in the area before striking out on his own several years later with the production of j. branch landscaping.

Shortly after, Keith Place joined in the efforts to make j. branch landscaping what it is today! With over 25 years of experience, Keith has a special eye for design! Growing up in the Houston area, Keith was always very interested in landscaping. Prior to joining j. branch, Keith worked with high-end clients in his seasonal boutique store. He incorporates his interior design background with love of nature to create “wow-factor” design elements. Keith also has extensive plant knowledge and knows just what you need in any design situation! Together, Joby and Keith create the ultimate design and installation projects to meet every need.
