Free 'Beautiful Lawn' lecture, demonstration set Tuesday


Anderson County Extension Agent Truman Lamb will present a free outdoor lecture and demonstration titled “Pests, Problems, and Best Practices for Lawns” as part of the Anderson County Master Gardener Association's Lynn O'Daniel Lecture Series.


The lecture will be held from 5:30 to 7 p.m. today on the front lawn of the Museum for East Texas Culture. Attendees are encouraged to bring samples from their yards of sickly grass, samples of troublesome weeds, and any lawn questions they might have. Also, please bring your own lawn chair. Refreshments will be served. There is no charge for the demonstrations.


Lamb graduated from Sam Houston State University in Agriculture Science with a minor in plant science. Over the years, Truman has participated in numerous research projects and demonstrations dealing with lawn grasses. He has served as County Extension Agent for 27 years.


Having served in Anderson County for 14 years, Lamb is very familiar with our area.
