2019 Healthy Virginia Lawns & Landscapes

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.

We are scheduling home visits for every other Friday starting September 13 thru October 25, 2019 from 9:00am until 12:30pm

For more information, email Gaylynn Johnson, gaylynnj@vt.edu; or call the VCE Hampton office at 757-727-1401.
