Advice for "Gardening on Steep Slopes" for hilly Middle Tennessee


Williamson County is full of sloping lawns and rolling hills, but don’t let the steep slope of your yard scare you away from landscaping it.

The Williamson County Public Library’s Garden Talk Series from 1:30 p.m. until 3 p.m. on Monday is all about “Gardening on Steep Slopes.”

Attendees will learn strategies for gardening on slopes so they can enjoy a beautiful and productive garden and keep the soil from washing away.

The program is presented by Amy Dismukes, the Horticulture Agent for the UT/TSU Williamson County Extension. She writes the monthly Homegrown Tradition column for the Home Pages. Dismukes is a graduate of Auburn University, where she received a Bachelor of Liberal Arts, a Bachelor of Science in Horticulture: Sustainable Fruit and Vegetable Production, and a Master of Agriculture in Plant Pathology & Entomology. She provides educational training for homeowners and commercial clients on horticulture and best management practices, coordinates the Williamson County Master Gardener Program, and provides diagnostic services for Williamson County residents. She is a frequent guest speaker for professional, garden, and horticultural associations, and commercial pesticide workshops and conferences.

Registration is required for each individual planning to attend.
