MATTOON – A noon hour program with a local expert on Wednesday (March 7, 2018) is designed as a way to enhance your spring lawn program.
Paul Icenogle, a master gardener who spent 18 years caring for the Lake Land College grounds, is presenting ideas for enhancing your lawn in a program at noon at the Mattoon Public Library.
Participants may bring their lunch or enjoy light refreshments.
“A green lawn is like the nice matte color in a painting,” Icenogle said. “With a nice, lush, lawn, you can enhance the rest of your yard.”
The program is part of the library’s event series that features local and regional programs representing a variety of interests.
“Paul’s passion for lawns and related issues becomes contagious,” said library director Carl Walworth. “He is a great resource for everything from basic lawn care to those planning more elaborate features. The noon hour time slot is designed to be convenient and to easily fit into the workday.”
During the presentation, he will talk about the importance of lawn foundation. Icenogle said a strong foundation opens the possibilities for other amenities or features that make a robust lawn. Icenogle plans to discuss best practices to address a variety of lawn care matters.
He said all of the materials needed to make your lawn great are also available locally, so nothing is too difficult to find.
“Paul is knowledgeable in all areas related to lawn care and thus we are excited to offer him as a resource for your lawn care and gardening needs,” Walworth said.
