Another hit from Doug Green's publications. In his easy to understand style, Doug tells how to get a healthy lawn using 3 basic ingredients - Compost, Corn Meal and Patience. Step by step procedures walk the reader through the process to a better lawn. Once a healthy lawn is established, weeds, pests and disease will be minimized.
I knew from the minute I looked at the table of contents that this was the book I've been looking for. Speaking about the "law of unintended consequences" and "Mother Nature doesn't break her own rules"... excellent! When you have someone as knowledgeable as Doug Green and you can tell he's starting off with the right assumptions at the beginning of the book, you know it's going to be worth your time to read it. I love gardening books that get right to the point, and this one does. I can't recommend it highly enough. :)
I decided to discontinue the landscaping service and start taking care of my front and back yards myself. I also decided to convert to organic lawn care. I chose this book both because it had a low cost in Kindle and it was about 50 pages. That is exactly what I need for a start. A quick read to help me shift my mindset. The guide is great. It is providing general guidelines and it is easy to read. It is very encouraging to know you can take care of your lawn without poisoning it, without poisoning the environment and most importantly, without poisoning your love ones! Now I actually need to start doing it...
Once again Doug hits it out of the ballpark! This book is not only enjoyable to read, but it is packed full of useful information without being overwhelming; it's got JUST the info any person could want to grow a healthy happy lawn, all in an easy-to-follow format. His straight-to-the-point style of writing, seasoned with his wonderful wit, have made this book my "THE" go-to book from now on for my lawn. I wish I could give it 10 stars!
Again everything that Doug writes is just what you need to know about the topic. Very enjoyable to read and the explainations behind the How To's really help your motivation to make any needed changes.
I read this in about 1.5 hours. It's extremely short and somewhat repetitive in places. However, the advice is simple and straight-forward. Good read if you know very little about keeping a lawn and want a quick primer.
I am being presumptuous with giving it a 5, because I haven't has time to read the entire book yet. But I found relevant information in all the chapters I have read. And the price was certainly great! I subscribe to Doug's online newsletter, and his discussions and information are always so helpful.
I found this extremely informative and plan on starting with this in the fall. Have recently put in 4 raised vegetable garden beds and trying to go organic, they recommend grass clippings for mulch ( if organic). My lawn is not organic, so I thought I would look into it. This book is short and sweet, tells you what to do when.
