Carolina Lawn Care

Extension Gardener Workshop

Creating beautiful lawns while protecting our waterways

Carolina Lawn Care Logo

When used properly and judiciously, lawns can have a place in residential landscapes. However, many homeowners and landscapers misapply fertilizers, polluting our environment or causing turf stress.

Join Matt Jones (Extension Horticulture Agent, Chatham County) and Matt Lenhardt (Extension Horticulture Agent, Iredell County) for a workshop on proper lawn fertilization and irrigation. Topics include: turf nutrient requirements, soil testing, reducing fertilizer, pesticide, and irrigation applications, and reducing stormwater runoff and nutrient leaching into water bodies. A hands-on demonstration on how to calibrate fertilizer spreaders will follow the lecture.

  • DUE TO COVID-19, this program will be rescheduled for a later date. It involves hands-on learning that is hard to replicate online, so it will be offered once it is safe to have public events without need for social distancing

The workshop costs $6 per person. Registration and fee payment is required by June 5, 2020. Select a date and click on the REGISTER link above. Additional classes may be offered if there is sufficient demand. If spaces are full, add your name to the waitlist on the registration page.

Both workshops will be held at the Chatham County Agriculture and Conference Center (1192 US 64 W Business in Pittsboro).

This workshop is part of the Extension Gardener series of workshops that are open to everyone. It is also part of the Extension Master Gardener℠ program of Chatham County core training. More information about becoming a Master Gardener℠ volunteer in Chatham County.
