EBR Master Gardeners present lawn, turf, native plants March 21

(03/06/24) BATON ROUGE, La. — The East Baton Rouge Master Gardeners Association wants to help get yards in shape this spring by offering two great programs: Lawn and Turf, and Native Plants on Thursday, March 21, at the Jones Creek Library, 6222 Jones Creek Road.

Master Gardener D.G. Ewing will be the first presenter. He is a retired industrial engineer with an extensive resume of professional experience. His presentation on lawn and turf will include the various species available, selecting and establishing turf, how to do it yourself and the importance of soil testing. Ewing will also cover routines to follow in caring for a lawn and problems that may occur.

Master Gardener Gaynelle Wolff will introduce the many native plants that would love to take over a yard. She enjoys learning by experimenting with different plants in her garden and helping others to have success in theirs. Everyone is interested in improving the environment, and ecologists know that using native plants not only makes gardening easier, but it also is beneficial for the animals that live in and around our yards. Find out which native plants to include in landscaping this year.

The programs will begin at 6:30 p.m., are free and open to the public.
