Residential Landscape Maintenance Approach

lifelong landscape partners

Your landscape

deserves our attention

It doesn’t happen by accident: great landscape stewardship takes a tested, thoughtful process. At James Martin Associates, everything starts with you.

We have a proven process for setting up our services to meet the specific landscape maintenance needs of your property – whether we designed it or not. Learn more about our unique approach below.

“I just wanted to pass on my thanks for this year’s wonderful yard service. We have been most impressed with the quality of the landscaping and also the weekly work that the crew does for us. I love looking out on my lawn in the morning and seeing how great everything looks.”

Let’s Walk Through Our Landscape Maintenance Process
Initial meeting

Your partner from day one

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

Site Visit

A visual assessment

We value your time and can measure your site, complete an inventory of existing plants and trees, and take photos without requiring you to be present.

Our professionals will then compile a comprehensive strategy for your site and create a detailed proposal back at our offices.

Contract Initiation

A customized proposal

Your Account Manager will meet with you to explain the proposal and make sure you have a clear understanding of the services we will provide.

Upon your acceptance, we’ll get your services scheduled, and you’ll be able to watch your landscape transform over the seasons.

In Season Weekly Services

Offering Comprehensive care

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

Approximately every 4-6 weeks—scheduled to occur at the optimal time for plant health—extensive service such as pruning or other horticultural care services will be provided. See Our Services for details.

We’ll take care of everything:

  • Weekly cosmetic care
  • Horticultural care
  • Account management & inspections
  • Mulch & bed amendments
  • Turf care and fertilization
  • Optional seasonal color program
  • Optional holiday decorating program
  • Other landscape enhancements
Site Inspections

Continuous care

Your Account Management Team will visit your landscape every 3-4 weeks to monitor and discuss progress as well as inspect for quality performance. Your Account Manager will also meet with you and address any concerns you may have.

“Thank you so much for all of the work you put into my beautiful back patio and front walk. I love it! I have received so many wonderful compliments, it is exactly what I wanted.”

End of Season

Wrapping up

At the end of the season, your Account Management Team will meet with you to review our performance and find out what you might like to do differently next year.

From standard lawn maintenance to major landscape renovations, we have the expertise and experience you need.

Our landscape maintenance professionals will proactively manage your landscape, allowing you the enjoyment of your landscape season after season.
