Henrico Co. Extention to Host Lawn Care Seminar

If you are going to garden you might as well know what you are talking about and do it in an environmentally sensitive way. Why not want to take advantage of these Free workshops that Henrico County is sponsoring?

Henrico County Extention hosts a lawn-care seminar March 10-12 with a program on weed control.
The seminars are 7-8:30 p.m. at the following locations (pick one): March 10, Varina Branch Library
March 11, Tuckahoe Area Library
March 12, Twin Hickory Area Library

“Lawn Weed Control” will provide information about a broad range of weed topics, including the use of herbicides and the application of pre- and post-emergence products to control weeds before and after they appear. Participants are encouraged to bring samples for identification and discussion. The seminar will include a question-and-answer period as well. Each session will be led by an Extension staff member or a Henrico Master Gardener.

“Lawn Weed Control” is free and open to the public; however,
participants should pre-register. Call 501-5160 to register or to obtain
additional information.

Participants can also learn more about Henrico Extension’s SMART Lawns program, a seasonal, comprehensive program that teaches a step-by-step approach to building healthy lawns. SMART Lawns, which teaches environmentally responsible practices, provides participants a plan tailored to fit their specific lawn-care needs. Contact the Extension Office for more information.
