Who We Are
This is my site Written by GeoffM1968 on March 1, 2006 – 12:01 am
We get numerous emails asking us about our company and just what do we do. First of all, while we do have extensive gardens, we do not sell plants directly to the retail public. Most of the plants we produce are consumed in our normal business operations. The plants we grow are unique specimen plants, often new introductions. We are always looking for new plants with the potential to out perform all others of their class. 

 

Secondly, while we do have sunny borders, grasses, and roses gardens, our primary interests lie in shade gardening, specifically Pulmonarias, Epimediums, and large specimen Hostas. The gardens are aesthetically pleasing, while also providing a habitat for birds, butterfly and other wildlife. At anyone time we have between 300-400 different plants growing in our gardens, although we find it hard to believe at times. 

 

Thirdly, Martin’s Yard & Garden is a family owned and operated lawn and garden maintenance company serving Southwestern Lower Michigan,(Zone 5) for over 18 years. Our mission is to provide timely quality affordable lawn and garden maintenance to the members of our community. We have had the honor of being selected “The Best of the Best” the last four years, in a survey conducted by Leader Publication.

 

Equipment
Equipment My wife, Marty, is responsible for maintaining the office in some semblance of order. She is our accountant and office manager rolled into one. Her duty is to keep us all under control and headed in the right direction. Marty is our rose garden expert, having grown and cared for roses for-over twenty years. She is also a great cook.
I run the day to day operations of the business. Although I would much prefer being out in the gardens, I do the scheduling, research, designing, and planning. I have been involved with plants for over 40 years. Equipment

While we do not sell plants we are always here to help out with your gardening questions. Please feel free to email us whenever you have a question or problem. Naturally, if you live in our area we would be more then happy to work with you directly on your lawn and garden needs.
