Patios and Outdoor Spaces Design and Installation
Hardscape features help you to make the most of your outdoor space.
Fire elements help you to extend your time outdoors by providing warmth and light. Driveways and walkways add a touch of elegance and help to boost your curb appeal. Retaining walls, stairs, and pathways add visual interest while also helping your property to be more safe and easy to navigate.
Our hardscape experts also offer custom masonry projects to elevate your already existing architectural features like pillars or the façade of your home.
Pool and Spa Design and Installation
No landscape feature helps you embrace Chicagoland summers quite like pools and spas.
Level up your outdoor oasis with a new one-of-a-kind design from our expert landscape architects.
Our team will also work with your existing pool to seamlessly integrate it into the surrounding landscape.

Add some sophistication to your backyard with a new or updated outdoor kitchen space.
Customize your outdoor kitchen design for your cooking needs and abilities - from simple grill enclosures to lavish cooking spaces with smokers, pizza ovens, sinks, wine coolers and kegerators, and everything in between.

Bring the relaxing sounds of nature closer to your home with a water feature installation.
Your property is one of a kind and your water features should be too. Our water features are built specifically to meet your property’s unique needs. Your water feature should be thoughtfully constructed so it can blend seamlessly with your existing landscape and provide a tranquil and peaceful feeling to your space.

Pergolas, Arbors and Landscape Structures
Transform your backyard into an outdoor entertaining dream with patio, pergola, and pavilion design and installation.
A patio is the foundation of a great outdoor entertaining space as it can be customized and used exactly as you wish. Add a patio table to serve dinner to friends, or a fire feature to spend time relaxing and gazing at the stars.
High-end additions like a pergola or pavilion over your patio can extend your time outdoors as seasons change.
Residential Lawn and Landscape Maintenance
Protect your new investment by allowing us to maintain and enhance its beauty year after year.
We know how challenging it can be to maintain your entire landscape. You want your outdoor area to represent you well, and a neglected property is not the kind of attention you are looking for.
Our full-service landscape maintenance programs maintain and care for your entire property, not just your turf. We offer lawn maintenance, lawn care, plant health care, irrigation repair, and seasonal services like leaf clean-up and sprinkler winterization.
We’ve lived in our house for 28 years and used several other landscapers, but James Martin Associates is by far the best. They have exceeded our expectations since our first spring cleanup and continue to do so with their superior weekly maintenance. When I saw that they had staked my hydrangeas without being asked or tacking on an up charge, my jaw dropped! They even trimmed some overgrown yews.
