Our Programs

Have you been unable to solve your lawn and garden problems on your own?

Are you new to our area and find midlands gardening a bit challenging?

Do you have plants you can’t identify or weeds you can’t get rid of?

Maybe you just need suggestions to improve your landscape. 

Our Rent A Master Gardener program can help!

We will send a team of Clemson University certified Master Gardener Volunteers to provide research-based horticulture information specifically tailored to your lawn and garden.

During an hour long site visit we will walk your property providing answers to your questions. We will offer advice on good gardening practices and plant selections that will help you create that beautiful garden you’ve been dreaming of.

All proceeds are used for Lexington County Master Gardeners educational and beautification projects benefiting Lexington County and its residents.

For information on pricing and to reserve your consultation email our program coordinator at RAMG@LCMGV.org
