Event description

Description

Lawns have become a ubiquitous feature of residential and commercial landscapes. Compared to natural vegetation, or landscapes that incorporate a diversity of native plant species, monocultures of turf have lower levels of biodiversity.

However, lawns and turf are appropriate for wear-tolerant outdoor surfaces for recreation, when lines-of-sight are needed, or for accessing other parts of properties. With the right practices, lawns can be can be incorporated as part of a sustainable home landscape.

Join Matt Jones (Extension Horticulture Agent) and the Master Gardener Volunteers of Chatham County for a presentation on sustainable lawn care. Participants will learn ways minimized lawns to only areas where they are used, how to select appropriate species and evaluate site conditions, how to manage soil fertility based on soil tests and adding compost, and how to incorporate organic methods and other practices to reduce or eliminate the use of pesticides.
