About Us

In the Beginning:

Stephen Martin knew that landscaping was his future at an early age. He started working for several estates in the affluent Peaches Point area of Marblehead at the age of 13. Around the same time was  introduced to local landscaper Phil Mansfield while having breakfast with his grandfather at Mr. Eds coffee shop on Atlantic Ave in Marblehead. Phil was just starting out and needed someone to assist him. Stephen decided that this is his passion and took the position with the well-respected firm while learning all aspects of the landscape industry. With his hard work and knowledge, he grew to the position as foreman.


After finishing four years at Essex Agricultural & Technical Institute he went on to the collegiate program and in 1980 received his certificate in Landscape Design & Construction. In 1978 he was recipient of the Massachusetts Tree Wardens and Foresters Associate Award at a ceremony at the Kings Grant in Beverly MA.  Prior to finishing his studies, he founded Martin Landscape Service and worked every minute possible to grow into a successful landscape/design firm.
