“Cool Season Lawns” Seminars Offered Free to Residents

Residents who want to keep their beautiful green grass throughout the colder months can learn to establish a “cool season” lawn during an afternoon seminar at the Oklahoma County OSU Extension Center, located at 930 N. Portland Ave. in Oklahoma City on Tuesday, August 13, from 1:30 to 3:00 p.m.  Also this seminar will be offered Thursday, August 15, from 1:30 to 3:00 p.m. at the Midwest City Library.

            “Usually it is tough to keep a lawn green in the summer around here,” commented Ray Ridlen, Horticulture Educator for the Oklahoma County OSU Cooperative Extension Service.  “But if you do have a green lawn, you don’t have to give it up just because fall is on its way.  Some grasses flourish in cooler weather and can stay green and healthy through the fall and winter.”

            Cool season lawns also do well for homeowners whose yards are well-shaded and filled with large trees.

            The OSU Extension Cool Season Lawns seminars will focus on types of grasses, planting techniques and maintenance schedules, said Ridlen.

            “Most summers seem like they will never end,” Ridlen said, “but they will and these seminars will help homeowners get the basic knowledge they need to have a spectacular, green lawn for the majority of the year.”

OSU Extension Service will also be offering a “Container Gardening” seminar Thursday, August 15th from 5:30 – 6:30 p.m at the OSU Extension Center.

            The seminars are offered free to the public. For more information, contact the Oklahoma County OSU Extension Center at 405-713-1125.
