    Emerald Ash Borer Discovered in Stearns County
    There are three easy steps Minnesotans can take to keep EAB from spreading:
    Spring Lawn Care
    Our landscapes will soon turn from the white snow cover to green grass but have a little patience so that damage is not caused to your lawns by starting lawn care too early.
    Shady Characters and Sunny Superstars
    Some of the loveliest of these plants are perennials, coming back larger and stronger year after year.
    Wildlife In the Garden
    A combination of control methods will help keep garden marauders at bay.

    ! Whatever your reason, grow a few veggies this growing season and start enjoying fresh produce harvested by you!
