New Chamber Member: Garden Secrets
Garden Secrets

The Willkommen Committee of the New Ulm Area Chamber of Commerce welcomed as a new member Katie Hesse with Garden Secrets.  Established in 2018, Garden Secrets was started when Katie decided to take her lifetime of gardening experience and channel it into a sustainable, viable gardening service.  She worked for August Schell Brewery for over four years and in 2017 she began to take on her own clients. Growing up on a hobby farm, gardening just came easy to Katie. It also became more than just a job to her, it became a true passion in her life.  While working at the brewery, Katie began her ongoing education in Horticulture. She is now currently serving clients in Southern Minnesota as well as in the Twin Cities Metro Area.  She specializes in helping clients increase the value and beauty of their homes by creating elegant outdoor living spaces.  Garden Secrets serves residential and commercial properties, offering a variety of services including designing, maintenance packages, installation, container packages, and seasonal décor packages.  Please check out her designs and services at
