The Rutgers Master Gardeners of Mercer County will host a program on lawn renovation and establishment on Aug. 22, from 7 to 8:30 p.m. The program will be held at Rutgers Cooperative Extension, 930 Spruce Street, Lawrence.

Early September is the best—but not the only—time to seed your lawn, according to Mercer County horticulturist Barbara J. Bromley, who will present information on repairing lawn damage.

Learn how to prepare lawns for seeding, how to select the appropriate grass seed and how to restore lawns effectively. Soil test mailers will be available for purchase so you can determine how much (if any) fertilizer or lime is needed for the lawn. Preregistration is recommended.
