I reveiwed The Organic Lawn Care Manual by Paul Tukey a while back but it deserves another mention. It deserves constant mentioning in fact. Not only does it contain all the general lawn care knowledge of your standard lawn care manuals, but it teaches lawn care from an organic perspective. You'll still find information like how grass grows, different types of grass, and weed identification, but there is no mention of using synthetic fertilizers or chemical pesticides. It's all natural lawn care, all the time.
Whether you currently maintain an organic lawn or are entertaining the idea, this book is a great resource. Even if organics aren't your thing, the book is still a fantastic lawn care manual, but I challenge the naysayers to read it and not come away with a slight desire for a natural lawn.
Paul Tukey is the authority on organic lawn care and an expert communicator, making The Organic Lawn Care Manual an easy to comprehend and thorough study on the topic. He is the founder of safelawns.org, a non-profit organization dedicated to promoting natural lawn care and grounds maintenance, and a tireless advocate for the organics movement.
