A Master Gardener from Cornell University Cooperative Extension will be conducting this gardening program on Wednesday, May 22 at 1:30 PM. He will give you all the information you need to show off your lawn to your neighbors. Proper mowing, watering and fertilization, disease, insect-and-weed control, thatch, and core aeration are just some of the topics to be discussed. The leaching potential of fertilizers and pesticides into Long Island ground water is high and will be an important focus. The Master Gardener will explain pesticides and who is allowed to use them, as well as lawn care without pesticides. This is also a chance for the local landscaper and the homeowner to develop an educated communication with each other. There is no registration for this program. All are welcome.
