This course is annually offered in late summer and is aimed at homeowners and others who are actively involved in the management of their home lawn.
 
There is a really good chance you will learn way more than you bargained for about turfgrass and lawncare if you complete our lawncare course.  You will learn about the different kinds of turfgrasses we can (and can't) grow here and how to manage them, options for establishing a new lawn, renovation tips for existing lawns, weed control, fertilization, and more!  Shoot, you may even learn what it is that makes those holes in your lawn! There is no charge for this class.  email Mitchell at mmote1@utk.edu for more information.
