Organic Lawn Care Manual by Paul Tukey
Book DescriptionIn the modern suburban landscape, beautiful, green lawns are perhaps the most ubiquitous feature of all. It's difficult to imagine a friendly neighbourhood without broad, clean stretches of neatly shorn grass. More and more in recent years, those lawns are evolving into organic systems as homeowners - concerned about the long-term effects of chemicals on their children, their pets, and the environment - turn to natural methods to keep their yards healthy and inviting, and, yes, still green and lush, too. Paul Tukey, a self-confessed mowing addict, answers the growing demand for organic grass with a comprehensive volume of natural lawn-care information. Step by step, he takes readers through the many elements that work together to form a healthy, organic lawn. Well-treated soil, fed properly with compost and natural fertilizers, is the foundation of every great lawn. Plant it with a grass cultivar matched properly to the climate and sunlight, nourish the soil and grass with the proper amount of water, and maintain the height with a good mower equipped with a sharp blade. A beautiful, naturally maintained lawn can be as simple as that. An organic, healthy lawn is the best defence against weeds and pests, but when unwanted visitors creep in, Tukey is ready with Weed and Thug ID Guides and advice on dispatching them naturally or learning to live with the benign offenders. Tukey also provides helpful advice for lawn keepers making the transition from a synthetic to an organic lawn system. It's all here - I everything today's homeowner needs to keep his lawn off drugs, and make it an inviting living and play area for the whole family.
