Sam Bauer, Horticulture Educator, University of Minnesota Extension
Are you ready to give up serving your tyrannical lawn with what seems to be constant watering, chemical treatments, and mowing? There are many alternatives to those traditional Kentucky bluegrass varieties! Examine plant specimens from the greenhouse and learn to identify them. Discuss the best practical products to use for fertilizer, seed, and pest control, and consider other possible ground covers. Learn about the benefits of creating a sustainable lawn, and leave the session with a variety of tools to implement environmentally sound practices.
