What an AMAZING experience. This was the first time I used a true professional landscaper, and I chose them based on reviews, and the care they took when Denise and Joe came to view our project. Denise started off listening to my (low maintenance) desires, and made beautiful drawings and suggestions for what would work. Once I approved their fair estimate, they scheduled the job, arrived exactly on time as promised, and brought along an exceptionally friendly hard working crew. They worked for two days NON-STOP, clearing out excess growth, dead bushes, weeds - and planting three breath-taking beautiful flower gardens. Their work TOTALLY EXCEEDED MY EXPECTATIONS. They transformed messy ugly areas into a place of beauty. I LOVE my new garden, and hope am in AWE of their work. I just hope I can maintain to do their work justice. I would HIGHLY RECOMMEND AJM Earthscaping, and will use them for more projects. I particularly appreciated the drawings, advice and follow up by Denise. HIRE THEM - you will not be disappointed!Jun 11, 2018Verified
We hired this firm to help design our landscape. Denise listened to what I was trying to accomplish and presented beautifully sketched ideas that really helped me visualize what the result would be. Stunning!Nov 6, 2019
Joe and Denise Martin, husband and wife owners of AJM Earthscaping, are STUPENDOUS. Knowledable, creative, hardworking, responsive and just the nicest people, they are a JOY to work with. I am simply THRILLED with the end result of my BEAUTIFUL landscape renovation this summer. It was a large project, consisting of extensive hardscape (Joe’s area of expertise) involving grading and installing a large (24’ x 14’) patio with Techo-Bloc slabs and grading, redirecting drainage and installing over 2000 sq. feet of Techo-Bloc pavers for the front walkway, turn-around area in front of double garage and driveway to the street, and softscape (Denise’s area of expertise) involving designing, preparing and planting 7 BEAUTIFUL planting areas both in front of the house and in the backyard, which took over 2 months and there was never a moment when I was not excited about how it was turning out. AJM Earthscaping offers a not often found combination in landscape design as the company combines hardscape and softscape so well. Because Joe and Denise are each totally respectful of the other’s work, a landscape project with them is seamless from start to finish. I have had very few remodeling projects inside or out where I have been totally satisfied with every decision and detail, but my landscape renovation with AJM Earth is certainly one of them. I would recommend them UNRESERVEDLY for any landscaping project you have. Hire them—you won’t be disappointed!Sep 17, 2019
Landscape Design & Garden Installation: “After living in our house for nearly 3 years we decided it was time to make some upgrades to the landscaping. By chance, we attended the Stamford Home Show in March and collected information from numerous landscapers. We followed up with a few and interviewed them at our house. All had years of experience and some good ideas but no one took the time and care to listen to what we wanted and come up with the kind of detailed and beautiful design that Denise Martin of AJM Earth did. From the first moment, it was obvious that Denise and Joe Martin not only offered a full service package of landscape design, hard scape design, execution and maintenance, but that no client was too small or unimportant. The other vendors could barely be bothered with us unless we would shell out a lot of money before even getting to know what their design plans would be. Unlike the other vendors, the Martins were never too busy to answer phone calls, emails, and texts right away. They lavished us with time and attention every step of the way. It was clear from the outset who had presented us with the best designs and who would provide the kind of customer service we needed. Throughout the process we were amazed at the attention we got. We can’t imagine any other landscaper spending as much time with us, being as available as Denise was, or taking the care with our property as if it were her own to get everything just right. Whenever there were unforeseen challenges along the way, Denise persevered, day and night, to make sure that the design was executed as promised. She always made us feel that our project was her passion. Cars slow down now as they drive by to take in the lushness of the landscaping. People who walk by stop to tell us how beautiful the garden is. We couldn’t be more thrilled with the landscaping. It is truly breathtaking! We can’t imagine working with a more talented, dedicated, patient, and kind landscaper. Clearly, we made the right choice.” Stephen Stamford, CTDec 27, 2017
Denise Martin and AJM Earth – an incredibly effective small landscape team – have given me back the garden started 25 years ago and all but lost of late to benign neglect and some overly successful Sea Oats. The combination of horticultural and excavation experience was just what this project needed. My initial inquiry was answered right away and we met to survey the “garden” just a few days later. This fact alone is telling of how very professional, organized, and responsive AJM Earth is. Denise and her husband Joe, as well as third team member Carlos, were great about listening to what I wanted as well as suggesting innovative solutions for what else was needed – and then delivering on schedule and on budget. In late September, the heavy equipment rolled in and all the overgrown beds were “grubbed out”, large stone steps were assembled to my exacting specs, and an amazing Gabion basket wall (one of those innovative suggestions) now permanently shores up an old wood retaining wall. Finally, a back yard screening border was planted with some of my favorite trees and shrubs. All this was accomplished by the team of three who seem to do the work of ten. And do it happily! Whatever your landscaping goal, whether you have no fixed notion or, like me, know what you want but need a ton of help to achieve it, Denise and her team are the ones to call. You will be as impressed and delighted as I am. December 2017Dec 29, 2017
- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?Our prices are on a per project basis and can be an all inclusive package or a per hour installation.
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?Each client is worked with closely, developing the vision as we walk off the property, taking photos and developing sketches to bring that vision to life. Some have no idea what they are looking for, others have the vision and we make it happen. But each client is as involved as they want to be, and are kept informed every step of the way.
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?My husband and I have owned and operated our excavating business for 35 years and my husband holds a home improvement contractors license for just as long, licensure is not available or required in excavation. I have worked in the landscape design/horticulture professionally with our family run business for the past 5 years, and have been an avid gardener for decades. I have received my tree & shrub pruning training thru the New York Botanical Gardens and my certification in horticulture and landscape design from the New York Botanical Gardens.
