In Tauntons Lawn Guide, well-known expert John Fech emphasizes a commonsense approach to lawn care that takes into account the households budget, lifestyle, and time constraints. He offers a wealth of practical instructions on everything from installation and routine maintenance to improving a problem lawn. Topics include whether to start from seed or sod; how, why, and when to aerate, remove thatch, fertilize, mow, and water; pests, disease, and why organic is not always better; the lawns design role; and how grass coexists with flowers, shrubs, and trees. Because soil types, grass selections, and seasonal lawn care chores vary from one part of the country to another, the book also includes a detailed regional guide. Filled with step-by-step instructions, easy-to-read charts, and over 125 photographs, this is the complete guide to maintaining a lush lawn.
