BACKGROUND: A native of Hampton,Virginia, Luke began working for McDonald Garden Center in 1998. Luke brings 18 years of experience as the Landscape Foreman, where he acquired a working knowledge of both residential and commercial landscapes. Through his ‘hands-on” work experience, Luke learned the intricacies of design principles and developed a working knowledge of plants, landscape design, and hardscapes.

WHEN I'M NOT WORKING, YOU CAN FIND ME: Spending time with my daughter, coaching her softball team, reading, and watching movies.

GARDENING ADVICE: Let a garden evolve. A garden does not have to be completed all at once just to squeeze things in. Think in terms of season and scale. Be excited about every aspect of your yard and incorporate things that excite you and make you happy.

FAVORITE PLANTS: bloodgood maple, miscanthus grasses, phlox, loropetalum, and salvia.
