Lawn Clinic...

Or.... How I Stopped Torturing My Yard and Saved the Lakes

Our lawns are greening up and getting full of robins and dandelions, so you might be thinking about what you want to do differently this year in your yard. For example, as we try to reduce nutrients going into our lakes, can you make a difference by using the best times to fertilize and best ways to control weeds, and making sure you aren't spreading more fertilizer than you need? Do you have microclimates in your yard -- and how do you deal with them?

The Durham County Soil and Water Conservation District and the Sierra Club will be having a lawn clinic in from 1:00PM to 2:30 on March 30th. We will start by the wall at 839 Sedgefield Street, walk around to look at cool yards and talk about talk about how lawn chemicals get into stormwater. In the process, we will learn some practical things about lawn care.
