Franklin County Virginia Cooperative Extension

Here is a great resource for assisting homeowners in many ways.  They will test one soil sample for free to help you care for your lawn, and they can help you identify plants, diseases, and pest issues.  You can place a clipping in a Ziploc bag and visit the office located in downtown Rocky Mount.  I highly recommend checking out their website to help educate yourself better to ensure the greatest outcome in maintaining a beautiful, healthy landscape!
