MOULTONBOROUGH -- An expert in Granite State landscape and horticulture will lead a program titled Landscaping in the Lakes Area at the Moultonborough Public Library on Thursday, Oct. 9, from 1 to 3 p.m.
The program, featuring Dr. Cathy Neal, is free to the public and is provided through the Bearcamp Valley Garden Club. Dr. Neal will share valuable tips about creating and maintaining landscapes that are beautiful, lower in maintenance, and environmentally friendly.
Neal will talk about how landscaping can have far-reaching effects on water quality. She will explain which plants thrive with a minimum of care. Other topics she will cover include how close to a well or water body can one safely use pesticides, and what lifestyle choices can one make that will help New Hampshire's lakes and rivers remain pristine.
Neal's program is for the average gardener/homeowner, and not just for those with waterfront property.
Dr. Neal is an Extension Professor in the Department of Biological Sciences at UNH, and is the state specialist in Landscape Horticulture for UNH Cooperative Extension. She frequently conducts training in sustainable landscape practices. She is author of several fact sheets and books, including "Landscaping at the Water's Edge: A Manual for New Hampshire Landowners."
She will be available for an informal question-and-answer session after her talk. Reservations are not required, but they are appreciated, as refreshments will be served. For more information, see bearcampvalleygardenclub.org. to reserve a place, select the tab "Make your reservations now."
