Lawn and Garden
Horticulture is the science and art of growing fruits, vegetables, flowers or ornamental plants.
In Johnson County, maintaining attractive home and commercial landscapes not only increases property values but promotes an improved quality of life that makes our community a great place to live.
Whether you have a question about lawns, vegetables, flowers, or landscape maintenance, Extension information is created for use by everyone, including homeowners, lawn services and nurseries.
In Johnson County, we have two agents. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org with questions.
Anthony Reardon is responsible for Fruit/Vegetables, Small Urban Farms.
