Trouble-shooting Landscapes: Efficient Irrigation
County Extension Director/Horticulture Agent, Rebecca Jordi and Master Gardener volunteers Paul Gosnell and Nelson Peterson will assist homeowners in reducing insect and disease issues on lawns and landscapes. These problems often result from too much water, shallow irrigation, or uneven coverage. They will demonstrate how to properly measure irrigation at one zone and then provide solutions for correcting discrepancies.  Other cultural practices such as fertilization, proper mulching, planting depth of trees and shrubs, etc. will also be provided.  In addition, Jordi and the Master Gardeners will diagnosis disease or insect issues on ornamentals at the site.  The goal is to reduce frustrations and the cost of managing North Florida landscapes. Jordi requires at least 6 homeowners and will come to your subdivision for these free sessions. To schedule a "Trouble-shooting Landscapes" session for you and your neighbors, please call the Extension office at 904-530-6353, or email Ms. Jordi at

These programs are free to the public unless otherwise noted.
