Our History

In February of 1982, John and Helen Martin moved their growing family to Woodbury, Tennessee. John and Helen shared a vision for a family owned and operated business. With a love for growing things, they began with one greenhouse to grow vegetable plants for growing produce to sell locally. That same year, John also started building storage sheds.

Over the next few years, more greenhouses were added, and they started growing bedding plants and selling them at home and in Murfreesboro. As the business grew, space became strained, so they purchased a piece of property on Bradyville Pike in Murfreesboro. There, they became a full-service nursery and garden center. In 2003, the Martin’s opened a new retail garden center and nursery on Broad Street, which has since expanded to cover nearly five acres.

In 2009, Lester took over managing the business with John remaining very much involved. You’ll still see him running around, making deliveries and helping out with projects around the garden center! Martin’s has expanded to include other local families, and young people looking for springtime jobs as well. Quality and customer service remain our highest priority and is stressed to every worker.

Martin’s Home & Garden is now the premier place to find quality gardening products and hometown service. Visit Martin’s Home & Garden today, and experience the pride and passion of 36 years of service.
