At a time convenient for you, we’ll send a commercial maintenance Account Manager to your site to talk with you about your needs and walk around your grounds. We’ll literally “get the lay of the land.”

We value your time and can measure your site, take an inventory of existing plants and trees, and take photos without requiring you to walk us around.

Back at our offices, our professionals will compile a comprehensive plan for your site and create a detailed proposal.


Your Account Manager will meet with you again to explain the proposal and make sure you have a clear understanding of the services we will provide. Upon your acceptance, we’ll schedule your maintenance services and create a Crew Manual for your site and the specific landscaping services to be performed.

From the first meeting to the completed contract, we’ll work closely with you to create a maintenance contract that perfectly fits your needs and site.

“We worked with James Martin Associates over a three year process to spruce up the entrances to our site. It turned out really nice! [JMA] did a very nice job with the plan”



We will carry out maintenance services based on the level specified in your contract. We offer Comprehensive, Saver, Lean and Green, and Customized Services. 

Most service packages include mowing, spot weeding, and attention to unsightly details or unexpected problems (like a downed branch, damaged flowerbeds, or overgrowth on signage).

Scheduled to occur at the best time for plant health, pruning or other horticultural care services will be provided approximately every 4-6 weeks.

Our account supervision team will overlap with crews on site on a regular basis. Your Account Manager will visit your commercial property to inspect for quality performance and meet with you to address any concerns you may have.


At the end of the season, your Account Manager will meet with you to review our performance and to see if there is anything you would like to do differently next year. The follow up will include a new proposal for the following season. You can also take advantage of our multi-year renewals, which give you the opportunity to save on your services.
