Beautiful & Sustainable Lawns

A Greener Yard

lawn In the Piedmont, rejuvenating lawns is best done in fall. Knowing and using good growing practices all year also saves you time and money, and reduces environmental impact. Establishing a healthy stand of grass with good planning and sensible management will minimize issues with weeds and diseases - you can have a beautiful healthy lawn and still reduce the impact and expense of lawn chemicals. Classes  on Monday, August 28 at 6:30pm at Kathleen Clay Edwards Library, Thursday, September 7 at 6:30pm at Glenn McNairy Library and Sunday, September 10 at 4 at Greensboro Arboretum.
