As we move from summer into fall, lots of questions about lawn care arise with the change of seasons. What are the basic principles of fall lawn care? What does a healthy lawn look like? How can a homeowner reduce the costs and maintenance requirements of a lawn? Are there good alternatives to traditional lawns? Alison and Diane will answer these and other questions.
Lawns serve a number of purposes in the landscape—to set off a perennial border, connect different areas of the garden, or provide space for pets and people to play. But a healthy, attractive lawn requires care. In their talk, Alison and Diane cover the basics of good lawn care. They discuss the personal, financial, and environmental impact of lawn maintenance. And they introduce creative ideas and explore alternatives to traditional lawns as ways to reduce maintenance, lower costs, and be environmentally friendly.
Come learn all about fall lawn care and how to make positive changes in your lawn and landscape.
The talk is free, but seating is limited and registration is required by calling 828-255-5522.
