Welcome to the Down the Garden Path Radio Show and Podcast. We discuss down to earth tips and advice for your plants, gardens and landscapes.

As landscape designers, Joanne Shaw and Matthew Dressing think it is important and possible to have great gardens that are low maintenance.

On this show, we try to help educate you seasonally to manage your garden and landscapes, engage with Garden Authors and educate ourselves right along with you as we learn together about interesting topics on the environment. 

You can listen live at on Monday’s at 7 pm EST. or subscribe to download this show and past episodes from your favourite podcast app.

With a new month, comes a new topic on Down the Garden Path. This month on Down The Garden Path, we're talking all about lawn care! When it comes to our lawns, we’re all a bit fanatical. So, this month we’re going discuss what it takes to get a beautiful lawn. From lawn care 101, to artificial turf, pest and diseases, and everything in between, we’ve got the tips and tricks to get you growing a green oasis that’ll make you the talk of the neighbourhood.

Tune into this week's podcast to learn more about caring for your lawn.

We discuss lawn care in each season and when to:

and answer some common questions:

  • Is it too soon to rake?
  • What's a good mowing height?
  • How long does it take for corn gluten to work?
  • Can I alternate toxic and organic lawn care products?
  • How long does it take for corn gluten to take effect?
  • What should the nighttime temperature be before seeding?

For more information on spring lawn care, listen to our previous episode from May 2018.

Our lawn care theme continues for all of April. Join us later this month for more helpful "lawn care" podcasts:
