Perfect for County Residents with a Passion for Gardening and Lawn Care
For Morris County residents with green thumbs, and those whose thumbs may be a little off color, an upcoming series of events offered through the county Park Commission may offer some good advice to help keep your lawns and gardens healthy this summer season.
Events offered by the Friends of Frelinghuysen Arboretum range from perennials to pests:
In a related event, the Bamboo Brook Outdoor Education Center offers a free butterfly walk with the North American Butterfly Association, Friday, June 22 from 9:30-11:30 a.m. To register, visit njconservation.org.
Check the Friends of Frelinghuysen website for costs and reservations.
Also, you can get lawn and gardening advice from a master gardener. Visit the Rutgers Cooperative Extension of Morris County website for helpful advice, FAQs and contact information. Information on becoming a master gardener is also listed.
Stop pulling weeds and watering – use wood mulch instead! Morris County Municipal Utilities Authority offers home delivery of screened compost and double-ground wood mulch to Morris County residents through the end of September. Download their flyer here or visit the MUA’s website on the topic.
