This book is a must have, especially if you do NOT know where to begin with your lawn and garden or are unsure of what to do or how to do it. It is very well organized and does not over-whelm you with too much information at one time. Yet, it teaches you how to do to it all. I have been through almost every lawn/garden book on the market for help and none come close in quality to this one.

As an avid gardener, this book was great! Step by step, season by season guide to gardening and things that should be done and how to do them. Very straight forward and great pictures! I have quite a number of gardening books, but this one is one of the best.

Let me help you decide - this book is a Must Have. Easy to understand, well organized, straight forward and virtually indespensable.

This book is really a good quick reference book for a wide veriety of lawn and garden care topics. Part 1 is a handy calandar that tells you when to do basic maintenance and when to start projects. Part 2 gives details on the topics covered in part 1. I checked this out from my local library and liked it so much I've now purchaced a copy for use as a year-round reference.If you're looking for in-depth details and landscape design inspiration, that isn't what this book is for. But it does give you a nice list of titles in that direction.This book would also be an excellent starting point for lawn and garden beginners.

After reading all the positive reviews here, I waited in anticipation for this book's arrival. Unfortunately, it did not live up to my expectations. Gardeners in the West or Southwest will find little-to-nothing about their area in this book, since it concentrates mainly on the North and South. Try Sunset's "Western Garden Book" instead. Looking for in-depth lawn care information? You won't find it here! Get Stuart Franklin's "Building A Healthy Lawn" instead, which has no glossy pictures, but provides more information on lawns. This book misses the mark on garden design inspiration, too. There are so many other, better books on this topic as well. Mainly geared to the neophyte gardener who has just moved or inherited a garden, "The Lawn and Garden Owner's Manual" lacks detailed coverage on subjects that serious gardeners crave.
