About The Turf and Gardening Store
The Turf and Gardening Store, with locations in Roanoke and Richmond, Virginia, provides professional lawn and garden products and advice customized to the do-it-yourself homeowner. You won't meet a more passionate, service-oriented, professional team anywhere.
We offer professional-grade lawn and garden products - normally available only to professional landscapers, wholesalers, and golf courses - directly to you at prices as good or better than the "big box" stores for comparable active ingredients.
In the late 1940's, our founding father, William "Bill" Connelly joined forces with Mr. Agnew to create the Feed & Seed Shop on the Roanoke City Market. They specialized in much needed materials such as chicken feed, dog food, grass seed, and fertilizers.
In the late 1950's, there became a high demand for highway grass seeding applications. Bill took advantage of his knowledge of agriculture and agronomy and created a hydro-seeding division. Environmental Turf & Erosion Control Services.
In 1973, Bill Connelly passed away unexpectedly, leaving his son, Eugene "Kip" Connelly to take over the family business. Kip has been instrumental in the growth and stability of the company and is still President of W.S. Connelly & Company, Inc. today.
In 1976, Kip purchased Lynchburg, Virginia company Landscape Supply, Inc., and moved the business to Salem, Virginia. In 1984, the business moved into the building at 101 Madison Avenus in Roanoke that still holds our corporate offices.
Landscape Supply, Inc., opened its first Richmond branch in Short Pump in 1999, and then opened another branch in Midlothian in 2004. In 2006, two additional branches were opened in Charlottesville. Our newest branch in Williamsburg opened in the spring of 2007.
For the majority of our years in business, we catered to the landscaping professionals, providing quality commercial-grade products and materials. In 1998, we opened The Turf Store at our facility in Roanoke so we could use our years of knowledge in horticulture and lawn care to bring quality professional products and materials to homeowners. We have opened our second Turf and Gardening Store in Richmond in the spring of 2007.
