“Lawn Maintenance for Water Conservation” will be from 10 a.m.-noon at the  AgriLife Extension office, 1600-B Smith Road in southeast Austin.

“When there are drought conditions in Central Texas, landscape plants become water stressed, so it’s important to look at how you are caring for your lawn to help it survive,” said Daphne Richards, AgriLife Extension horticulture agent for Travis County.

She said the program will address looking for signs of insects, diseases and weeds, plus learning the best way to water, fertilize and mow lawns.

Cost is $10 per person until Feb. 29 and $15 thereafter.

Richards said space is limited so attendees are encouraged to register early to reserve a seat. To register online, go to http://bit.ly/20HgYj7. To register by phone, call 979-845-2604. Payment must be  by check or credit card; no cash will be accepted.
