Garden Care Consultations for Homeowner

As you may know, Master Gardeners currently work with homeowners to answer a full range of plant, tree, and lawn care questions either in-person, by phone, or via e-mail on the County Greenlines. As an extension of that service, Master Gardener Teams will now meet with homeowners for site visits to discuss those problems and concerns. The Master Gardeners will then offer suggestions and solutions. This program will cover landscaping issues, plant and disease identification, proper planting and care, and other issues that could arise for homeowners.

Anyone interested in having a Master Gardener Team visit their yard should contact the local Extension Office. Go here to find the nearest Extension Office to you.
