James has been my neighbor for a few years, only I did not know it until recently when he kindly introduced himself. I was looking across my torn up mud-pit yard after recently renovating my 1842 carriage house thinking it was going to be a long difficult process to re-landscape. I was lucky to have found a person, such as James, to work with as he is a brilliant landscaper, designer, stone mason, artist et al. He is also a very sensitive, personable and knowledgeable person who has traveled the world. I believe these experiences have also informed his unique landscaping vision, his use and knowledge of materials and the designs he individually creates for each client. He is a pleasure to work with and knows how to respect budgets, individual aesthetics and the character of each home he works in. Within just two weeks James transformed my yard into the most beautiful magical place in all of Brooklyn... and I am not kidding! I could not be more pleased.– Nancy
My wife and I recently hired James and the The Artist Garden team to redo our roof-deck, side patio and planters in the front of our house. This was a fairly large job that also required lighting and a full irrigation system. From day one James and his team were professional and great to work with. In the past one of the biggest problems we've had when renovating is the ability of the crew not to impact other areas of the home with damage or messes (i.e. walls and floors). Not once did we notice even a slight scratch on the walls or floors and everyday our townhouse was left immaculate. My wife is a designer by trade and she very much wanted us to be part of the creative process in choosing the plants and placements. Not only was James great in incorporating our vision but he enhanced our ideas by adding plants and flowers that were in-line with our personal taste. The finished product is amazing on once summer is in full swing we hope James will come back to take pictures of the work for his website. We really could not be happier with the end result and would recommend James and his team for any job big or small.– Sincerely, Phill O'Leary and Nicola Glass
My experience with The Artist Garden was nothing short of completely positive. James did everything he said he would- to perfection- and The end result was a beautiful well thought out rooftop. Additionally the professional, courteous and reliable crew made the process itself a pleasant one.– Kate Engelbrecht
