Each of Merrifield Garden Center’s three locations overflows with thousands of plants throughout the year, encompassing such variety that a reporter for CNN’s Eatocracy claimed “I might as well endorse my paychecks straight to them…because I always want to grow what they've got.” Knowledgeable garden experts, 25 of whom have been with Merrifield for 25 years or more, guide customers through row upon row of flowers, trees, shrubs, and other plants, or help them sort through an extensive selection of bulbs and seeds. Visitors may also bump into the founders themselves, or their children and other family members, 38 of whom still work at the thriving business that started 40 years ago. Merrifield doesn’t just proliferate plants, however; amenities such as cafes in Gainesville and Merrifield and a dog park in Gainesville make each garden center into a leisure destination as well. Three of its garden gurus run an hourlong TV show that's been going for more than two decades, and other staff publish gardening advice on the website and Facebook. The staff also work to protect the environment with a variety of eco-friendly initiatives. Besides stocking native plants and water-saving devices for their customers, they also compost more than 20,000 tons of soil and 25,000 cubic yards of brush left over from their comprehensive landscaping services every year. The Gainesville location also gathers old concrete, metal appliances, and rusted Optimus Primes for recycling free of charge.
When Randy McCoy's father-in-law started his hydroseeding business in 1968, he likely didn't imagine the sprawling outdoors empire it is today. With help from his wife, Wanda, their children, and a team of staffers in colorful, logo-emblazoned shirts, McCoy keeps Garden World of Virginia's small stone house and sunny greenhouse brimming with more than a thousand plants, such as begonias, impatiens, and tropicals. Paths meander throughout the 2-acre facility, past garden accessories such as birdhouses, paver stones, and patio furniture, as well as artfully arranged vignettes that pair plants with their ideal pots. Garden World's expert landscapers also travel to unruly lawns, taming them with retaining walls, mulches, and topsoils to seat shrubs, trees, and wanderlust-stricken gnomes.
