“The crew we were assigned was tremendous. They worked efficiently, energetically, pleasantly and thoughtfully. They ultimately made the magic happen. Please thank them for us.”


Comprehensive lawn care is much more involved than a simple/unsophisticated “mow and go” by a “Chuck in a truck” type service. Other lawn maintenance companies may not be able to help you solve advanced issues with your turf the way James Martin Associates can. JMA is a step above these companies with certified associates and account managers with years of training and experience. James Martin Associates crews have Account Managers and Foremen with years of experience not just on lawn mowing, but on total lawn and landscape care.

We excel in long-term lawn care service, because we know that short term solutions will only worsen your problems or cover them up and not serve as a long term solution. Flooding and drainage issues, insect infestation, and dead and dying areas are symptoms of an unhealthy lawn. Our team members work on all of these issues and can recognize their signs to bring them to your attention.

Environmentally friendly lawn care

In addition to our knowledgeable lawn care professionals, we are also committed to “green” business practices that are environmentally responsible. We collect all landscape waste to create our own recycled mulch, we limit drive time for our crews between job sites, and use biodiesel fuel that limits carbon emissions.

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 lawn maintenance. With over 43+ years of experience our priority is making our clients happy and working with them year after year.

By trusting us with your lawn care, you can step out into a beautiful landscape from spring to fall, and enjoy the rich colors and healthy plants and flowers without lifting a finger and letting the team at James Martin Associates handle all of your worries making you stress free!

“We have had JMA manage our landscaping needs for over 5 years. They have re done our landscaping beds, sod and even a patio with a pergola. The guys that come out weekly to cut our lawn are really terrific and do a great job at keeping up all the needs of a very large garden/lawn. Trimming plants and shrubs and making our lawn always look perfect! Really appreciate all of their hard work all year long.”
