Event Description

Lawns can be beautiful, environmentally friendly and free of chafer beetles if managed properly. Learn the correct cutting height, how much water and fertilizer lawns really need to be healthy and why chafer beetles choose onelawn over another. Touch samples of different lawn grasses and learn how to identify them. Shift your perspective of the ‘perfect’ lawn and accept other plant species that contribute to creating a beautiful, functional and sustainable lawn.
