“I just wanted to say thank you for the great job your guys did for me this autumn. I see what a job the guys do and it makes me realize the difference between an amateur and a professional. Everything is beautiful and has that well-manicured look without being fussy. Having your help allows me to spend more time gardening, rather than maintaining.”



Our core belief is to encourage and enhance nature’s beauty.  Left untended, a once beautiful landscape can become overgrown after only a few short years.

With regular landscape maintenance, informed adjustments, and proactive care by James Martin Associates, your garden will mature into the landscape you envisioned.

Not all landscape companies are the same! Some offer only the most basic services without the knowledge to help you fix dying turf or drainage issues, and other companies struggle to keep you informed throughout the seasons.

James Martin Associates is proactive in solving issues even before they present themselves, and we consult with you monthly to make sure you are happy with our landscape services.
