Henrico Extension to offer free seminars on weed control March 6-8

The Henrico County office of the Virginia Cooperative Extension will kick off its annual lawn-care seminar series March 6-8 with a program on weed control.

The sessions, which are part of the SMARTLawn series, will be held from 7 to 8:30 p.m. as follows: Tuesday, March 6, at the Sandston Branch Library, 23 E. Williamsburg Road; Wednesday, March 7, at the Tuckahoe Area Library, 1901 Starling Drive; and Thursday, March 8, Twin Hickory Area Library, 5001 Twin Hickory Road. Each session will include the same presentation.

A Henrico Extension staff member or master gardener will answer questions and discuss such topics as the use of herbicides and application of products to control weeds before and after they appear. Participants are encouraged to bring plant samples for identification and discussion.

The SMARTLawn seminar series will continue in April, August and September with other programs designed to help residents improve their lawns naturally, without relying on artificial pesticides.

The seminars are free and open to the public. Participants are encouraged to register in advance by calling Henrico Extension at 501-5160. For more information, go to http://www.co.henrico.va.us/extension.
