About Lawn & Garden

Maintaining attractive communities and home landscapes increases property values and promotes an improved quality of life that makes Shawnee County a great place to live.

Whether you have questions about lawns, vegetables, flowers, or landscape maintenance, Extension information is available for all who live and work in Shawnee County --homeowners, lawn services, and nurseries. Our subject matter specialists are prepared to provide you with non-biased, research-based information.

The Shawnee County demonstration gardens display current horticulture practices related to trees, flowers, gardening and composting.  Click here for a map of the location of our demonstration gardens.

Our trained Extension Master Gardener volunteers help consumers with information about planting, care of lawns, and gardens.
