UNL Extension to hold Lawn and Landscape School


Take time to sharpen tree, lawn, and landscape maintenance skills by attending the first annual Lawn and Landscape School, Jan. 31 through Feb. 2, at the West Central Research and Extension Center, 402 W. State Farm Road, in North Platte.

This three-day school will help grounds keepers, maintenance crews, landscaping firm workers, and advanced skill homeowners build an integrated approach to maintaining landscapes in public and private settings through common sense applications. These applications can be used together to benefit trees, lawns, and landscapes for all-around landscape health and sustainability.

Learn from University of Nebraska-Lincoln Extension and Nebraska Forest Service professionals in an interactive setting how to maintain and improve landscapes while reducing dependency on pesticides and fertilizers in landscapes. Participants will learn how plant selection, soil fertility management, environmental conditions, insect and disease pressure impact trees, lawns, and ornamental plants and their relation to each other in the landscape.

Each class will start at 8 a.m., Central Standard Time, and will conclude at 5 p.m. Along with interaction with the speakers, participants will receive a large binder of resource material that will be covered in the school, reference charts and materials that can be used throughout the year. A copy of the Integrated Turfgrass Management of the Northern Great Plains, written by University of Nebraska-Lincoln Extension professionals, is also included.

Tuition for the Lawn and Landscape School is $200 per participant. This fee includes resource material, speaker fees, meals, and breaks for the three-day school. Lodging is the responsibility of the participant. Please make all checks payable to the University of Nebraska-Lincoln. Participant registrations are due by Jan. 6 to David Lott, Extension Educator, 402 W. State Farm Road, North Platte, NE 69101.

For copies of the Lawn and Landscape School brochure or for more information, call David Lott at 308-696-6781, email dlott2@unl.edu, or visit your local University of Nebraska-Lincoln Extension Office.
