Are you green with envy for your neighbor's lawn?

Learn the secrets of the professionals and golf courses to keep your lawn green and healthy. Experienced horticulturalist Francine Vallillo will present “All about Lawns,” providing tips on improving your lawn by selecting the right seed mix, knowing when to fertilize and how to mow properly. The talk will identify types of insects, diseases and weeds and how to prevent and control them.

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention yard work is a moderate-intensity level activity, which the CDC recommends two and a half hours of each week to help prevent chronic health conditions.
