About This Class

One of the most common questions I get as a master gardener is "How do I get rid of Bermuda grass?". This hardy, invasive, tenacious grass is a challenge to beginning gardeners and advanced gardeners alike. After years of trial and error, I have come up with a process that not only removes Bermuda grass from the garden space, but KEEPS it out. Spring in the garden is so much more pleasant when you aren't fighting to keep Bermuda grass at bay! In this course, you will learn how Bermuda grass grows, as well as two ways to eradicate it from your garden. This class also covers what doesn't work, so you don't waste your time and energy on these tasks. Once you understand how Bermuda grass grows, it is much easier to understand how to keep it out.

Some of my earliest memories take place in my grandfather's garden. We would walk around this magical place, snacking here and there on whatever was ripe at the moment, and listen to the birds sing. It's safe to say, I have loved gardens my entire life!

In 2012 I got serious about my obsession with gardening and became a master gardener. Since then, I have spent time volunteering in museum gardens as well as teaching a variety of classes including Advanced Master Gardener Training at the local extension office, and basic gardening classes at my library, the Botantical Gardens, the Flower and Nature Society... pretty much any place that will have me! I have spent a few years selling produce, but my real love is teaching others to grow their own.

I firmly believe that if you love to nurture plants, you're a gardener. You don't need to have a farm or massive garden to be a true gardener. Whether you lack space and are growing on patio, or you possess physical limitations that allow for container or a raised bed garden, you are a gardener! A little bit of dirt and a whole lot of love for plants are the only requirements. I hope you will follow me on this gardening journey as we both find joy in the garden.
