Only one thing is standing between you and a fabulous lawn: It’s called Lawn Care For Dummies. If you wish to have a spiffy and well-coifed lawn (and not the overgrown, unruly one that people comment on when they pass by your house), you can find everything you wish to have to know to help you make your lawn the most dazzling spectacle on the block.
Let authors Lance Walheim and the gardening experts at the National Gardening Association treat you and your yard to a megadose of lawn care information. In Lawn Care For Dummies, Walheim and the NGA give you the dirt on all the essentials, including how to
* Design a low-maintenance or a high-maintenance lawn
* Evaluate the pros and cons of planting a lawn from seed or starting one from sod
* Discover how regularly you wish to have to water your lawn without under-watering it or waterlogging it
* Choose a mower that’s right for your grass type
* Deal effectively with wicked weeds and pesky insects
* Create alternative lawns, such as ground cover plants, decks, and patios
Lawn Care For Dummies also features a beautiful color insert with photos illustrating the more than a few types of lawns found in yards across the world.
If your neighbors’ lawn at all times resembles a beautiful green carpet even as yours looks like something that would cost Tiger Woods several shots, you could use some practical help. Agree with the Dummies folks–you actually can have a great lawn without breaking your back every weekend, spending a fortune on sod, or poisoning your pets. Lawn Care for Dummies takes you through all the steps: choosing the right grass, planting the seed or laying the sod, installing an irrigation system, fertilizing, aerating, watering, and mowing. It also helps you avoid (or conquer) the Big Three: weeds, pests, and disease. After all, the pot of gold at the end of the rainbow–you get to enjoy your lawn! In the spirit of all Dummies books, there’s a list of 10 lawn games at the end. Bocce, anyone?
