This comprehensive book covers projects and grounds maintenance useful for most rural yards.
The first two sections deal with large and small structures, discussing the construction principles for large projects like patios, water gardens, and fences. Four complete structure plans are given, as well as advice on using pre-cut kits to build a greenhouse and a work shed. There are also plans for an Adirondack chair, a bird feeder, a garden bench and a planter. The final section explains caring for the lawn itself and discusses grass varieties, mowing, diseases, design ideas and more.
