An eye for design and was able to execute a plan to meet the challenges we outlined!

Justin is a man of integrity and honesty. He knows his product very well from the manufactured stone to the natural rock directly from the quarry. He emphasized that the quality of the sub-structure is as important as the exterior surface and ensured that it was installed correctly. He has the team and the equipment to accomplish this and stays with each project until completion. Justin has an eye for design and was able to execute a plan to meet the challenges we outlined! Justin and team worked at our home, a new construction, for two summers. In the first year he built a large interlock patio at the back which is accessed by a set of stone stairs along a steep incline. The gardens, which include shrubbery and trees were designed to create an integrated package that is practical, beautiful and has not disappointed in any way. We wholeheartedly confirm our satisfaction with the capability, quality and attention to detail of the work and design of J. M. Smith Landscaping. Please feel free to call for more detailed information.

We are still in Awe!

This year our goal was to determine how we could both utilize the backyard given the accessibility challenges. We were extremely fortunate to find J.M. Smith Landscaping and owner Justin Smith who worked closely with us to design a practical yet beautiful backyard space. We really enjoyed working with Justin as he helped us navigate the numerous options available to us, all the while incorporating our wishes to create an enjoyable, usable family space which included a deck, ramping, landscaping, fencing and a beautiful inter-lock patio. J.M. Landscaping truly transformed our backyard, meeting not only our overall needs and wishes but completing the job within the timelines discussed and on budget.
