Keep Coppell Beautiful Environmental Education is offering an Organic Lawn Care class on Saturday, February 15 from 11:00 am – 12:30 pm at the Biodiversity Education Center, 367 Freeport Parkway.
Howard Garrett, aka The Dirt Doctor, is coming to Coppell! A lush green lawn is one of the great pleasures of the natural world, whether it's right outside your front door or on a majestic fairway at a legendary golf course. But anyone who has tried to grow the perfect lawn the conventional way knows it requires an endless cycle of watering and applying synthetic fertilizers and toxic chemical pesticides that costs a lot of money and kills all the life in the soil, on the surface, and on the grass. Fortunately, there's a better way. Organic lawn care is not only healthier for the environment, it's actually cheaper and less water-intensive, whether you're managing a small yard or acres of turf.
Howard always begins with the soil, showing you how to establish a healthy habitat for grass. Then he discusses how to establish and maintain a lawn, including planting, mowing, watering, fertilizing, composting, and managing weeds and pests. Follow the Dirt Doctor’s program and don't be surprised when your water bill drops dramatically and your lawn is the best-looking one on your block.
