While we do not carry out the construction part of the project ourselves, it has taken us 20 plus years in Syracuse to forge relationships with only the most experienced contractors, nurseries, growers, lighting specialist, fencing and pool companies. We can guide our clients to select the best people to implement their project. 

Regardless of the project, the property or the budget, each and every assignment that is taken on by the principals of A J Miller LA , all are given the same devotion, dedication, development and delivery.
