Hays Parks Director Jeff Boyle says the Water $mart Landscape Series will provide a variety of information including details on the City of Hays turf conversion program. Through the turf conversion program, the city will provide grass seed for residents willing to change from cool season to warm season grass.

Other topics will include soil preparation, which plants to choose and how to water properly.
