Award-Winning Landscape Design and the with James Martin Associates Difference

We know the design process can sometimes feel overwhelming. That is why you will be partnered with a landscape architect from project conception, to the final day of installation. With a spirit of collaboration as our focus, your completed landscape will be both uniquely you and expertly designed.

Each of our landscape architects, all who are on staff here at James Martin Associates, have a degree in landscape architecture. This means you can be confident that your landscape will be not only harmonious and beautiful, but built to last.

Landscapes Designed Specifically for You

We believe that your landscape should be a direct reflection of you. During our initial meeting, you will have an opportunity to engage with our design team, look at former projects for inspiration, and share your ideas for the space.

Our architects then present you with not just an estimate for your space, but 2-3 hard copy drawing options, a bound project booklet, and a detailed proposal.

After collaborating with our landscape architects and selecting exactly what you want for your space, the construction phase begins!
