What Our Clients Say

about our services

Design & Installation

“James Martin Associates performed and completed all the softscape and hardscape around my home. They performed and completed the large project in a timely fashion and with the utmost professionalism. Tom Bolas is a knowledgeable spokesman for the company and truly understands the process with a keen eye to make each project successful. My home required a great deal of precision with heated, bluestone walks and porches, large retaining walls of boulders and significant softscape. The crews of James Martin Associates show up on time, are courteous and most importantly put in a solid days work. I would recommend James Martin Associates without reservation. It is wonderful to be associated with this company. ”

“Dear Heidi and the entire team: Thank you very much for an amazing transformation, so far, of our home. It truly makes a difference to hire someone that is knowledgeable, experienced, professional, and truthfully, brilliant! This is your calling, Heidi. You have made this part of the project easy and seamless and you really, “get it and get us!” I will be passing along your name and company to all and have already told the builder to recommend you to his clients. Every day I am so thankful that we made the right decision and went with you and James Martin Associates for our landscaping. Thank you, thank you!”

“Just wanted to let you know that our backyard turned out so well. We are really enjoying the new space, and you gave us just what we wanted – privacy, low maintenance, great views from indoors, and year-round interest. We’re very happy with the look of bluestone, the pergola, and the lighting. Our neighbors are just as happy as we are and so are the birds. Thank you for the good ideas and for the good work in making them a reality.”

Residential Maintenance Client

“James Martin Associates LISTENS to their clients. They never take their customers for granted, and they genuinely are concerned with customer satisfaction. Work performed for this review was annual spring cleanup maintenance plus some add-on tasks. Their knowledge, attention to detail and flexibility in adjusting their work scope is really appreciated. They always leave the property clean and in excellent condition, and they watch carefully for “hidden” hazards such as sprinkler heads and landscape lighting wires. They always have a site supervisor who can communicate clearly in English with the homeowner, so any issues can be handled in a timely manner. James Martin Associates is on top of their game, and I highly recommend them to any residential customer who cares about their property, and wants to be treated with respect by their landscaping company.”

“The bosses here are pleasantly surprised by the service [JMA] is providing compared to the previous landscapers. Your guys were here fertilizing – this was always in our previous vendor’s proposal but we were always hard-pressed to prove if it was ever done. Keep up the good work.”

Snow Management

“I just wanted to thank you for your leadership and ask that you pass along a big thank you to your team for all the hard work they do to keep us safe here as we maneuver past the mounds of snow and tread lightly across the parking lots to get into the center. Their efforts do not go unnoticed. This year has been a true labor of love and their dedication is evidenced by the clear paths we are fortunate enough to walk.”

“I would like to thank your crews for their exemplary services this season thus far. I understand the accumulation is not near previous levels, but during each instance of snow or ice, our lots have been free from both.”

“I got here at 6:45 am and your crew had all the lots plowed and salted and were working on the sidewalks and entrances. Please express my thanks and appreciation to all your plow men and shovel crews for a job well done!”

When we need them to do something a little special, they do it gladly and without complaint. We are VERY HAPPY with the service from JMA. Thank you again.”
