Ken Matthews Garden Center grows landscapes, relationships and its business
By Melissa James, York County Contributor
Ken Matthews has been growing his landscape business since York County was literally a one-light town.
“Back then, there were no garden centers to serve all the people moving to York County from Hampton and Newport News. Route 17 was a two-lane road, and there was only one traffic light between the Newport News line and the Coleman Bridge—at the Grafton Shopping Center intersection, where the county fair was held each year,” recalled Matthews.
