Are you familiar with the many, many resources available on the Tennessee State Master Gardener website?  You don't even have to be a Master Gardener to access most of these resources!

• Right Plant, Right Place
• Manage Soils and Mulch
• Manage Turfgrass Appropriately
• Water Efficiently
• Use Fertilizer Appropriately
• Manage Yard Pests
• Reduce Stormwater Runoff and its Pollutants
• Provide for Wildlife
• Protect Water's Edge

Check it out.  And explore the website - you never know what you'll find!
