Lawn and Garden
Tomatoes dying? Moles ruining your lawn? Need a soil test? The Meadowlark Extension District is here to assist! From publications to personal visits to support from horticultural specialists at K-State Research & Extension, we have a number of ways to help make your garden more productive, lawn look greener, and even provide information on how to get rid of your less than favorite pest!
Have a specific problem?
You may bring soil, turf, weed, and insect samples to our offices and they will be sent to Kansas State University for evaluation. Suggested treatments or solutions will be provided through your local agent.
