This free event will be from 10-11 a.m. and is open to the public. The program will help homeowners prepare their lawns for fall and winter. The speaker is Kate Whitney, AgriLife Extension horticulturist for Williamson County.
“We are still in the last days of summer, but this is the right time to begin thinking about winter weed control and fall lawn care,” Whitey said. “Choosing the right weed control products can be difficult, and Texas A&M AgriLife Extension has some great information to help homeowners make the best choice for their weed problems.”
Hands On in the Garden
“Hands On in the Garden” is a free ongoing monthly event, aside from November and December, that is presented by the Williamson County Master Gardeners. The Master Gardeners also hold other events year-round related to gardening, yard and landscape topics.
Upcoming “Hands On in the Garden” topics include “Drought Tolerant and Dry Gardens” on Sept. 25 and “Antique Roses” on Oct. 23. These events will be at 10 a.m. in the Demonstration Garden, 3151 S.E. Inner Loop, Georgetown, and participants should bring a lawn chair.
Texas Master Gardener
The Texas Master Gardener program is an educational volunteer program conducted by AgriLife Extension. Master Gardeners are members of the local community who take an active interest in their lawns, trees, shrubs, flowers and gardens. Master Gardeners contribute time as volunteers, working through their county’s AgriLife Extension office to provide horticultural-related information to their communities.
There are also free Master Gardener publications online to help the public with everything from selecting the right tree for their area to identifying potentially problematic insects to expert advice on growing fruits, vegetables and herbs. Upcoming events and tips are available on the Williamson County Master Gardeners Facebook page.
