Healthy Virginia Lawns

The Healthy Virginia Lawns (HVL) program is a joint venture between the Virginia Cooperative Extension Master Gardeners and the Department of Conservation and Recreation. The program provides science-based lawn fertilization recommendations and other best management practices for homeowners.
