Lawn Care For Fall & Winter

Released August 20, 2019 10:33 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 are hosting a free class on lawn care for homeowners on Wednesday, September 11, 2019 from 7:00 pm to 8:30 pm.  The class will be held at the City of Alpharetta Public Works Department, 1790 Hembree Road, Alpharetta, Georgia 30009.

 

To have a beautiful lawn next year, you need to start now, in the fall.  Early fall is the only effective time of year to reseed or plant cool-season grass (tall fescue).  If you have a warm-season grass (e.g. Bermuda, Zoysia), you need to take steps to prevent winter weed grasses from taking over.  This class will cover: warm-season vs cool-season grasses, importance of soil testing and adjusting pH, and fall/winter activities for each type of grass (fertilizing, watering and weed prevention).  Learn the Top Ten Lawn Care Mistakes

 

This free class will be conducted by the UGA/Fulton County Cooperative Extension North Fulton Master Gardeners. Please join us.

 

Pre-register for this class on Eventbrite by September 10th.
