Lawns

The perfect lawn.

Your yard is one of the most important pieces of your landscape. The lawn provides a comfortable living area, like a carpet in a room. It sets the stage and a well tended, healthy lawn increases the property value of your home. McDonald Garden Center is the leader in lawns and lawn care in Hampton Roads. We offer seeds, fertilizers, plugs, sod, Lawn Care Kits and more to help you be the envy of the neighborhood.

Now is the time to beat the weeds for your lawn. The Fall Weed Control Kit contains everything needed to get your lawn in tip top shape. The pre-emergent, prevents warm weather weeds from sprouting and the post-emergent rids lawns of cool season weeds that are actively growing now.

If you are deciding on a new lawn altogether, start by choosing either a cool season or warm season lawn.

COOL SEASON – these lawns look their best during the fall, winter and spring. They have a soft texture that is just perfect for bare feet. They can be grown in both sun and shade. Cool season is a blend of Fescue grasses that are well suited to this area.

Benefits of Cool Season:
• Great for erosion control
• Tolerates shade
• Green during the winter

WARM SEASON – these lawns look their best in the heat of the summer. They are heat tolerant and water saving. Comprised of Bermuda, Zoysia, Centipede and St. Augustine grasses, warm season lawns are perfect for the heat and humidity of Hampton Roads.

Benefits of Warm Season:
• Heat tolerant
• Water saving
• Best in full sun
• Less trouble with weeds
• Dense growing, perfect for play
