Buy a copy of “The Organic Lawn Care Manual: A Natural, Low-Maintenance System for a Beautiful, Safe Lawn”
by Paul Tukey for $15. In this easy-to-read and visually appealing manual, Tukey explains how to evaluate lawn-care needs, how grass grows, how to create healthy soil, and how to select grass that is drought tolerant and disease resistant.
There are chapters on starting a lawn from scratch or refurbishing an existing lawn, making the transition from synthetic fertilizers and pesticides, watering, weeding, dealing with pests and diseases, and mowing and maintenance.
