Natural Lawn Care

During the growing season, questions about lawn or turf care are quite common at University of Illinois Extension offices.
Among the many questions, there is growing interest in natural or more sustainable lawn care practices.

Ryan has past work experience as a certified arborist, forest hydrologist, and USDA-NRCS Area Forester in southern Illinois.
