Upcoming event reminder: Caring for Your Lawn



Caring for Your Lawn
Saturday, June 29, 2013, 10am-12pm
Zilker Botanical Garden, Garden Center
2220 Barton Springs Rd. Austin TX 78746

With recent drought conditions in Central Texas, landscape plants are becoming water-stressed. With the drought predicted to persist in 2013, it’s important to look at how you are caring for your lawn to help it survive.  Lawn care during drought conditions can be tricky.  Learn how to care for your lawn, how to look for signs of stress, and the best way to water, fertilize, and mow your lawn. The content of your soil tells you how you should water your lawn, so the more you understand about the soil in Austin and surrounding areas, the better you can care for your lawn.

The event is free to the public. It is presented by the Travis County Master Gardeners, a volunteer arm of the Texas A&M AgriLife Extension Service in Travis County. www.tcmastergardeners.org. For information, call (512) 854-9600.
