The Dream Begins

Jack and Susan’s Story

They moved into their fixer-upper in 2020 with their 2-year-old daughter  Harper and golden doodle Biscuit. The landscape needed refreshing. They knew they would have to fix the old concrete patio and the backyard was a mud pit.

There wasn’t much change to the new year. Jack and Susan learned to work from home, Zoom to school, groom the dog, Youtube spin classes and had finished binge-watching all the shows on their list. Now they dreamed of the melting snow, warmer weather, and the promise to be back outside enjoying the yard. If only they had fixed the patio…

The Journey

They asked their friends, “Who should we hire?”, searched the web, went to Houzz… and voila! James Martin Associates came with the most unique and engaging approach to create their dream. Jack wondered where the kids would play. Susan thought there was one good location for the fire pit. They Both Wanted a place to garden.

The team at JMA listened, researched the codes, and presented a range of ideas that opened their eyes to the possibilities. They also presented feasible budgets.

Jack and Susan were given a realistic schedule, permits secured, introduced to their crew, and the daily communication was amazing.

The Celebration

The final patio is amazing! it exceeded their dreams and bought great joy to their lives.
