A presentation with Frank Niccoli, founder of The Village Gardener, on “Beautiful Water-Saving Lawn Care and Replacement” is scheduled 7:30 p.m. April 27 in the Program Room of the Los Altos main library, 13 S. San Antonio Road.

Niccoli will discuss earth-friendly ways to manage grass, replace turf with native plants to take advantage of the turf-replacement rebate from the Santa Clara Valley Water District and create beautiful, healthy lawns that save money and reduce water pollution with less water and toxic chemicals.

Niccoli has provided holistic landscape management since 1979, promoting sustainable practices, the use of natural and probiotic products and integrated pest management. He has taught numerous classes, including Sustainable Landscaping at Foothill College.

Admission is free and open to the public.
