Make your lawn a sponge. There are 3.8 million acres of turf in the Chesapeake Bay watershed, so minimizing the use of pesticides and fertilizers and reducing stormwater runoff from lawns is vitally important for local and regional water quality. Learn how to save money and improve your lawn at a Lawn Care Clinic.
Using a volunteer's yard, we assess the lawn, investigate the soil, do a weed transect, and demonstrate proper aeration. Participants learn how to improve and maintain their lawns while saving money and reducing polluted runoff.
