When and how to renovate your landscape

Special to GateHouse Media Florida

The Okaloosa County Master Gardener Association will offer a free lecture on landscape renovation from 10-11:30 a.m. Aug. 21 at the Okaloosa Extension Annex, 127 Hollywood Boulevard NW in Fort Walton Beach.

Things go out of style, age and wear out during the years — and that includes landscaping. A landscape is dynamic, always growing and changing. Just like a home or car, a landscape needs regular maintenance to look its best. There are many reasons to renovate: add curb appeal, correct drainage, repair irrigation, increase the home’s value, provide plants room to grow or to improve security.

Commercial Horticulture Extension Agent Sheila Dunning will help guide you in assessing your needs, setting goals, and finding design ideas to help renovate your landscape.

Seating is limited for this seminar and reservations are required. Call the UF/IFAS Okaloosa County Extension Office at 850-689-5850 or email to reserve your seat.
