Grass Pad - Lee's Summit
The Lee’s Summit Grass Pad opened in 1989. The store is located near the intersection of 291 Highway and 470 Highway, 2 miles west of Lake Jacomo and just a few minutes north of downtown Lee’s Summit. We sell straw bales for gardens and doghouses. The store sells top-rated grass seed, fresh cut sod, fertilizers for your lawn, weed controls, wild bird seed, shrubs, flowers, trees, bulk mulch and more!
At Grass Pad we have a reputation for having a knowledgeable sales staff and friendly customer service. Our experts can solve almost any lawn and garden problem you throw at them, and we’re always happy for a new challenge.
The Lee’s Summit location has donated prizes to the Lee’s Summit Beautification Awards and also participates in Wreathes Across America.
