For Release: 03/13/17 10:51 AM
For the first time in the series’ history, Ask This Old House will include a segment filmed in Kentucky.
In the episode airing April 1 at 2/1 pm on KET2, Ask This Old House travels to Louisville to the home of Lane Slabaugh, who contacted the series asking for help tackling dead spots in his lawn. The episode also appears as part of The This Old House Hour on Thursday, March 30 at 8/7 pm on KET2 and Sunday, April 2 at 5/4 pm on KET.
During the episode, the program’s landscape contractor Roger Cook works with Slabaugh to share expert advice on starting and maintaining a healthy stand of grass.
The segments shows the pair dethatching, aerating, composting and fertilizing before sowing a blend of tall and fine fescue grass seed.
“As a long-time fan of This Old House and Ask This Old House, I was overjoyed when I learned that I was going to have the experts from the show make a trip to help me at my old house,” said Slabaugh. “Roger and the crew made it an experience I’ll always remember.”
Ask This Old House is a production of This Old House Ventures LLC, presented on PBS by WGBH Boston.
