Lawns & Lawn Alternatives

Lawns are often considered to be the carpet of the garden. Lawns provide a place for people and pets to relax and play. The plants capture rain, allowing it to percolate into the soil, and roots help to hold the soil in place and prevent erosion.

Join Horticulture Extension Agent, Debbie Dillion, to learn about turfgrass varieties and plants that can be used as alternatives to turf. Participants will learn about variety selection; pH and nutrient requirements including maintenance schedules; and common problems. The importance of soil testing & interpreting a soil test report will also be covered.
