Alpharetta To Host A Workshop On Lawn Care For Spring And Summer

Released February 04, 2019 08:39 AM

Lawns add beauty and value to any property; but, often homeowners have questions about the proper way to achieve great looking, healthy lawns in Georgia’s clay soil. The City of Alpharetta and the Alpharetta Natural Resources Commission, along with the North Fulton Master Gardeners, will present a free class on lawn care for homeowners on Wednesday, February 20, 2019 from 7:00 pm to 8:30 pm.  The class will be held at the Alpharetta Public Works Department, 1790 Hembree Road, Alpharetta, Georgia 30009. 


Mid-February is the ideal time to plan treating your lawn turf - before weeds germinate. Beautiful, healthy lawns require more than simply mowing and fertilizing.  Cool-season and warm-season grasses require similar activities, but at different times, to be effective.  This class will cover: how cool and warm-season grasses differ and what they require: soil testing, fertilizing, weed control, aerating and watering.  Even if someone else takes care of your lawn, this seminar will enable you to work with your lawn service more effectively.
