Even though many of us dream of the perfect lawn, the climate in the Piedmont certainly doesn’t make it easy! Come learn tips and tricks for keeping a more sustainable lawn, as well as environmentally-friendly lawn alternatives.

Join Ashley Troth (Extension Agriculture Agent) and the Extension Master Gardener℠ volunteers of Durham County and learn how to make the most of your lawn area. Participants will learn how to evaluate site conditions and select appropriate turf species, manage soil fertility based on soil tests, minimize lawns to only areas where they are used, and incorporate multiple practices to reduce or eliminate pesticide use.

Two identical sessions of this class are available:

  • (POSTPONED) Thursday, Apr. 16, 2020, 3–5 p.m.
  • (POSTPONED) Saturday, Apr. 18, 2020, 9:30–11:30 a.m.

The class costs $6 per person. Registration and fee payment is required by Apr. 14, 2020. Select a date and click on the REGISTER link above. Additional classes may be offered if there is sufficient demand. If spaces are full, add your name to the waitlist on the registration page.

Both workshops will be held at the N.C. Cooperative Extension, Durham County Center (721 Foster St, Durham, NC 27701)

This class is part of the Bull City Gardener Learning Series and is open to everyone.
