Fort Bend County Libraries will present an online gardening program, “Understanding the Lawn,” on Tuesday, August 24, beginning at 2:00 pm. Part 5 of the Texas AgriLife Extension Office’s Landscape Success series for homeowners, this program will be live-streamed via Webex; it will NOT be in person.
James (Boone) Holladay, County Extension Agent with the Texas AgriLife Extension Office in Fort Bend County, will provide an overview of turf-management techniques for maintaining healthy and attractive dense lawns and landscapes.
Hear about the optimum sunlight needs of different varieties of grasses, as well as nutrient requirements and types of fertilizers. Holladay will also talk about common pests and diseases that affect lawns in this region and how to combat them. Discover ground-cover options that can serve as alternatives to grass.
Holladay received his undergraduate degree in Horticulture from Stephen F. Austin State University and his graduate degree in Agricultural Education from Texas A&M University.
