Sustainable Lawn Webinar – May 28, 2020

Sustainable Lawn Webinar
Are you tired of mowing your lawn? Seeking a more sustainable option that requires less water? Join us May 28, 2020, for an evening webinar and learn how to convert your traditional grass into a no-mow lawn or pollinator lawn. The terms “no-mow” and “low-grow” refer to a type of grass called fine fescues. These species are one of the most shade tolerant turfs, require less water, and little to no mowing.

In this practical webinar you’ll learn everything from how to assess your current lawn, to selecting the right seed, planting, and maintaining a no-mow or pollinator lawn. To learn more and the link to register click HERE.
