Low-cost ways to keep your yard healthy and beautiful
The City of Georgetown is hosting a workshop on maintaining a healthy yard on Thursday, July 1. The free workshop is 1:30-3:45 p.m. in the Friends Room at the Georgetown Public Library, 402 W. Eighth St.
Topics in the workshop include composting, native plants, alternatives to pesticides and commercial fertilizers, reducing pests and weeds, and understanding beneficial insects. The workshop also will cover water use reduction techniques and City rebates from the Water Department. The workshop will present low-cost ways to maintain a healthy yard while reducing stormwater and watershed impacts.
Door prizes and drawings will be included as part of the workshop, and drinks and refreshments will be offered. Items in the free drawings include a dual-chamber tumbling composter (approved for use in Sun City and other HOAs), a soil moisture meter, and a hose-end water use meter.
