Gardeners and landscapers who would like to learn more about conserving resources and protecting the environment while still maintaining beautiful lawns and gardens are invited to attend a special program, “Earth-Kind® Landscaping,” at Fort Bend County Libraries’ Cinco Ranch Branch Library on Saturday, April 8, from 2:00 to 3:30 p.m., in the Meeting Room of the library, located at 2620 Commercial Center Blvd in Katy.
Fort Bend County Master Gardener and Earth-Kind® Specialist Peggy d’Hemecourt will provide an overview of Earth-Kind® gardening practices. She will introduce the seven Earth-Kind® landscaping principles: planning and design, practical turf areas, appropriate plant selection, soil improvement, efficient irrigation and rainwater catchment, effective use of mulches, and appropriate maintenance.
Earth-Kind® principles and practices enable gardeners to conserve water and protect the environment, while creating beautiful, easy-care landscapes. These organic methods also reduce the need for chemical fertilizers and pesticides.
The program is free and open to the public. For more information, call the Cinco Ranch Branch Library at 281-395-1311 or the library system’s Public Information Office at 281-633-4734.
