Everett Offering Natural Yard Care Series


Need some lawn and landscape tips?

If you have a green thumb but are still open to a little help with your lawn the City of Everett has some events coming up you may be interested in attending…

The City of Everett will hold two free workshops in September to promote natural yard care – green-gardening practices that make yards easier to maintain and healthier for kids, pets and the environment.

On Tuesday, Sept. 20, Ladd Smith, co-owner of InHarmony Sustainable Landscaping, will speak about natural lawn care techniques. Smith will discuss proven lawn care strategies to create a better, healthier lawn while using less fertilizer, water and pesticides. Additional topics included are moss and mole solutions.

On Tuesday, Sept. 27, Emily Bishton, a landscape designer and educator, will discuss fall gardening practices. Bishton has designed sustainable landscapes since 1997. She will walk attendees through a variety of topics that should be on everyone’s fall gardening to-do list, including pruning, mulching, dividing and weeding.

Both events will be at Eisenhower Middle School from 6:30 to 8 p.m.

Natural Lawn Care Demo Day coming in October
On Oct. 1, from 9 a.m. to noon, the City will hold an all new addition to the yard care series, a free “Natural Lawn Care Demo Day,” at Thornton A. Sullivan Park.

“We are excited to host this event,” said Apryl Hynes, Everett Public Works program manager. “It will be a great opportunity for residents to get free, hands-on experience with natural lawn care practices, try out aerators, spreaders and other equipment, and even learn how to sharpen mower blades.”
