Maintaining a Healthy Lawn @ Classroom at Travis Co East Service Center
Apr 3 @ 10:00 am – 12:00 pm

You may have considered reducing the size of your lawn and replacing it with hardscaping or native and adapted plants to conserve water. Although those are both viable options, Daphne Richards, Travis County Extension Agent, will show you how to properly water and care for your lawn so you can still have a beautiful carpet of grass for your family, friends, and pets to enjoy. Learn the proper techniques for watering, feeding and maintaining healthy grasses in this next class on Dealing with Drought Conditions.
