Fall Lawn Care in Atlanta

Live Zoom: Wednesday, September 1 at 7:00 pm

To have a beautiful lawn next year, you need to start now. Depending on your grass type, there are certain things you need to do and others you should not do. Early fall is the only effective time to reseed or plant cool-season grasses (fescue). If you have warm-season grass (Bermuda, Zoysia), you need to prevent winter weeds from taking over. North Fulton Master Gardener John Kligora will teach this class, which will cover warm vs cool-season grasses; soil testing; fertilizing, watering, and weed prevention.

ABC’S of Fall Gardening

Live Zoom: Sunday, September 19 at 2:00 pm

There is more to fall gardening than raking leaves! Please do not put away your gardening tools and please do not stop visiting your local gardening centers. Georgia weather gives gardeners opportunities for four-season gardening. As the summer months fade, the transition to cooler days and more rainfall, provides the perfect time to plant trees, shrubs, perennials, bulbs, and some cool weather vegetables. It is also time to change out your summer containers and replace the plants with colorful plants that will survive from fall until spring. We will explore how to modify containers by adding garden art to celebrate end of year holidays. Time spent in your garden during the fall will reap benefits all year long! This class is presented by North Fulton Master Gardener Carole MacMullan.
