There is no index. This makes it frustrating to use. For example, if you want information on chinch bugs, you have to go to the table of contents and locate Pest Management on page 103, then leaf through until you find chinch bugs on page 123. However,once you find what you want, the information is helpful.

This is one of the limited few books I could find on St. Augustine grass. This is the best good book on grass I could find and I would recomend it.

I'm trying to educate myself so that I can maintain my lawn myself. This book is very informative and I believe I am getting my money's worth out of it from the information it contains.

I'vehad this this book before. Lent it out and never got it back...guess he liked it too. So I got another one. Great book. Very helpful.

Thanks so much for your good customer service -- excellent book, too! It is hard to find good books on lawn care; this one is very thorough.

I could not be happier with this book. It is everything you ever wanted to know about Florida grass.

I learned a lot about howto manage my st. augustine grass. Good bye lawn service.
