James David Stewart
As an expert in landscape and pool design David Stewart, has been in the business since 1981. During that time, David founded New Image as a means for employment while studying to be a civil engineer in college. After discovering his natural aptitude for designing and constructing different forms of pool and landscape projects, David’s side job that earned a few extra dollars evolved into a lifelong venture. As the industry evolved and demands changed, David worked hard to continue his education, and at the same time, he developed New Image into the Arizona Landscape Company that it is today. David secured his C-21 Landscape and Irrigation license in 1985, and during that time, he built hundreds of pools between 1985 and 2008—eventually securing his B-5 Swimming Pool Contractor License in 2008. After forming many professional relationships in the industry, New Image eventually flourished into one of the top Phoenix pool and landscaping companies in Arizona. Despite the economic downturn in 2009, David was still able to expand New Image by switching his business focus to the maintenance and service side of the industry in order to weather the storm. Today, he continues to evolve New Image in order to assure the success and longevity of New Image Landscape and Pools—all so he may offer the highest quality services in the pool and landscape industry to valley residents David is excited about the opportunities that lie before him, and he truly looks forward to diversifying the New Image brand. More importantly, David looks forward to providing many more years of service to satisfied clients throughout the state of Arizona.
