2019 Healthy Virginia Lawns & Landscapes - Restart in Fall 2020
Members of the Healthy Virginia Lawn and Landscape team are trained Extension Master Gardener volunteers, who perform lawn and landscape assessments for Hampton homeowners. We do all the sampling and provide the homeowner with a personalized report that offers recommendations on: lime and fertilizer applications, aeration and soil compaction, perennial, shrub, and tree plantings; proper mowing height and pest management, if applicable.
The program cost is $30.00 and includes one soil sample; additional soil samples are $10.00.
