Martin Stern – Gardening Small Spaces: Martin is the owner of Squire House in Afton, MN. He has nurtured a life-long interest in nature and gardening, including living in Southern England in 1987 where he studied with world-renowned garden designer and writer John Brookes.

Since then Martin has designed gardens large and small throughout the upper Midwest and northeast. He seeks simplicity of intention, architectural interest and diverse multi-seasonal planting schemes in his work. Each garden has a separate and distinct personality. The gardens at Squire illustrate his design philosophy.

Martin enjoys garden writing and creating presentations on a variety of topics of horticulture, as well as gardens he has enjoyed in his travels. He conducts winter presentations for the public at Squire House Gardens. He is a speaker and available for group presentations.  martin@squirehousegardens.com
