by John Fech

In Taunton's Lawn Guide, well-known expert John Fech emphasizes a commonsense approach to lawn care that takes into account the household's 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 lawn's 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.

I was looking for information on the Bermuda grass we have in our yard. This did have a section on it that was helpfull, but the majority of the book was about a variety of different grasses. I wish I could have found a book devoted completely to our needs, but this one was well written and easy to understand. The seller sent the book quickley and was easy to deal with.
This is an exceelent book and provides a good overview of lawn problems and lawn care.
