University of Georgia Horticulture Presents: Landscape Update

This program is designed for the commercial landscaper or ground maintenance personnel and will cover a number of landscape management issues. Topics will include site analysis, planting and fertilizing and identifying nutrient-related problems in ornamentals. We'll discuss basic landscape pests and biological control options. We will also have a section on how to manage turf as well as how to troubleshoot problems in the landscape. CEU and pesticide license credits have been applied for.
