While our neighbors might be pushing for a perfect manicured lawn, many of us want to embrace a reduction in water use, fertilizer applications, and pesticide inputs and still have a decent looking lawn.  Can we have both: perfect and low-maintenance?  The answer is yes, but it all starts from the ground up.  Join us for a morning with a local expert and find out how you can be a good steward of the environment and have a good lawn. Turfgrass species selection, soil types and preparation, fertility and watering practices, and pest management will be discussed.
Sam Bauer is a U of MN Extension Educator. His research revolves around practical management strategies to improve the performance of turfgrass, specifically as it relate to low maintenance grasses, water conservation, and nutrient and pesticide loss.

  1. I will be unable to attend on this date. Do you plan to video record this presentation and have it available online for a fee? If so, can you share the information? Thank you.

  2. Would this strategy provide for low or no mow grass as well?
