CHOA lawns to go through renovation process


Please note that during March and April, Garron Grounds will be starting a lawn renovation program to improve the penetration and effectiveness of our watering and fertilization. The lawns will be  mowed quite short and may look bad for a while.  But we are assured they will grow back even more lush and stronger than they have been.

If you have any questions, please contact:

Steve Chinn or 503-682-0234 and/or

Karen Siegel- or 503-694-2692
