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.
