Learn How to Properly Maintain Your Lawn
Getting green, healthy grass is not easy without some TLC. This Spring lawn maintenance class will cover how to improve your garden’s health and our environment by treating organically. The class will include soil preparation, planting succession tips, companion planting, avoiding diseases, different types of composting, and elements of permaculture.
Class will be held at Main City Park. Meet at the Resource Center, the building closest to Springwater Trail.

Lawn grass naturally goes dormant in the summer months , but with water and fertilizer, we nudge it into a green and growing presentation that will require varying degrees of attention. In early spring the lawn needs a balanced blend of fertilizer. Learn the blend Jim recommends along with mowing tips, and tips for checking the health of your lawn.
