Whether you have a lawn the size of a postage stamp, a five-acre spread or something in between, Ken Matthews Garden Center has what you need to get your lawn into shape.

Ken Matthews Blend Fescue

Blended according to the Virginia Extension’s Turfgrass Recommendation, our Ken Matthews Blend is ideal for the Hampton Roads area. As a cool season grass, it retains its beautiful dark green color year-round and is perfect for full to part sun areas?

Have a severely shaded yard? We also have a Severe Shade blend for those areas where regular grass just won’t grow.


We offer both Fescue and Zoysia sod seasonally, only through pre-order.

Fescue sod is available beginning in late spring through late fall.

Zoysia sod is available beginning once ground temperatures are consistently above 50 degrees and throughout the summer.
