There are many books on flowers, trees and other decorative flora, but very few on the lawn itself.
This one covers everything you need to start and maintain beautiful grass, using environmentally safe methods. It starts with determining your yard uses and needs, then describes soil composition, grass anatomy and available varieties.
Separate chapters handle starting or renovating a lawn, making the transition to chemical-free maintenance, watering, controlling pests, weeds and diseases, and mowing. Includes several alternatives to grass, depending on the use of your lawn. Color photographs and drawings accompany the text.
