Philosophy

Pedersen Associate’s philosophy is built on two main tenets: collaboration and environmental responsibility. The firm’s founder and principal, Pete Pedersen, views landscape design as a process in which the client, landscape architect and design team collaborate on solutions. He believes that an ongoing dialogue is critical to success and ultimately results in the most rewarding projects.

Environmental responsibility is paramount when designing in Northern California. Using sustainable materials and green building techniques is something we take seriously. Towards that end, Pedersen Associates is certified  as follows:

  • GCBI Green Building
  • U.S. Green Building Member
  • Bay Friendly Qualified Advisor
  • Green Business Marin County
  • Green Roofs For Healthy Cities
