Almost Organic: Green Gardening Tips for the Practical Gardener

Let me help you take the frustration out of gardening and landscaping. Discover methods to be kind to the environment by being "almost organic", and maintaining a great looking yard and garden while being environmentally responsible, yet practical. 

If you find you're spending more time on your lawn and garden with less to show for it, then you'll benefit from the advice in this book, as it outlines methods that are preferably organic, at times traditional, but always after exploring the more green alternatives.

Written in an easy to follow format by a lifelong gardener, who's passion for gardening and our environment shows, this book includes common sense tips for:

  • having a good-looking lawn with minimal upkeep, using nontoxic methods
  • keeping insects away with little or no insecticide use
  • how to reduce your herbicide use without being overrun by weeds
  • when to renew and when to redo
  • understanding the numbers on the fertilizer bag
  • and more

  • In this book you'll find a happy middle ground between the purist organic approach and the overuse of fertilizers, and pesticides, recycling awareness and more. Give yourself the freedom to sit back and enjoy your lawn and garden with this "less is more" approach.

    From the Author
    I admit I've always been just a little skeptical of "green gardening practices", but have always adhered to the "natural" way when possible.

    Thankfully, over the years many of us have become a lot smarter in the way we look at what we're feeding ourselves and putting on our lawns. I've found great success in my gardening efforts by questioning some of the old methods, evaluating some of the new, and then finding a mixture of the best of each as
    being the way to go.

    I'm really just a guy who enjoys some of the simple things in life, one of them being gardening, and I'd like to share some of the learning, experiences, and opinions I have picked up over the years. I've found that over time, different experiences have changed some of those opinions, and I'm certainly not afraid of adapting my thinking or my actions when they make sense to me.

    I've had my eyes opened somewhat by my organic friends, it's my hope this book will help you decide what path you're on!


    Another in the "Gardening with Don" Series

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Practical Advice that delivers on the blurb 28 août 2012
Par Lis Sowerbutts - Publié sur Amazon.com

I'm a failed gardener who is considering giving it one last go. Unlike the previous reviewer, lawns are a large part of my gardening problem, and because of blurb mentioned lawns specifically I decided to buy this book.

I found it very useful, I suspect the author is like me - not prepared to spend every waking hour worrying about the Plant, but happy to help, particularly if I can get a better garden out of spending on chemicals.

The book is short and to the point, and I rather like the perfectionist neighbour "Herb" and our author's attempts to learn from him.

For the price I wasn't expecting a long book - and this book delivered on what it promised that's why I give it 5-stars and recommend it for gardeners who are looking for a "middle way" with organics

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Very entertaining and useful 6 septembre 2012

This book is about what it says it is about: almost organic gardening. The first pages explain exactly why it is not about 100% organic gardening. So, no surprises on that front.
The book is not pretentious, the author shares his knowledge based on his experience. I like the natural and conversational way he uses to illustrate his points.
Over the years I've learned many different gardening techniques and secrets from my mom and my grandparents, whose gardens have always been beautiful and exhuberant. Some of this tips are included in Don's book, but most of them are new to me.

Now, about the content:

Conservation of water is basic for me. Maybe because I come from a place where water is a scarce commodity in summer. The advice about watering and mowing the lawn is exactly what I wanted to read. Also, the tips to collect rain water are priceless.
Insecticides and other chemical products are not only dangerous for the environment but also very expensive. Green alternatives like the ones contained in this book are benefitial for plants and animals in general as well as for your wallet.

Whenever is possible I choose the green alternative. However, sometimes it is just not possible, at least for me. That's why I believe that "Almost Organic" is a good title and it is the kind of book I needed.

I have enjoyed the reading and learned new things that for sure I can apply to my backyard. I highly recommend this book.

I'm responsible for the maintenance of the lawn at home. I want it to look good, but I don't want it to eat into my time. I'm not keen on using chemicals. This book told me exactly what I needed to know without all the waffling like a lot of authors love to do.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 My grassroots "Save Nauru" campaign... pun intended, of course! 5 septembre 2012

The title of this review will only make sense to those familiar with the content in this eBook. Having said that, it should be noted that this is one of the more enjoyable books, either fiction or non-fiction, that I've read in months. The book had me hooked within the first couple pages, as the author writes in a light and conversational tone. In fact, I adore this writing style, because it reminds me of my own writing style, which means this author is a GENIUS!

I learned so much helpful info from this book, where do I start? Ladybugs are essential hunters, rain water is cheap and necessary, Fall treatments will ensure Spring health... Heck, I learned more about the N-P-K rating than I ever did as a landscaper! We should all be so lucky to have Herb as a next-door neighbor :)

I highly recommend this book to any home gardener who is looking for alternative methodology that can be simple, inexpensive and practical. You won't be disappointed.

And yes, Nauru indeed is in great jeopardy of disappearing from the world map altogether. They need our help...!

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Excellent advice for the hobby gardnener as well as the gardening veteran! 4 septembre 2012

I picked this guide up on a whim and was truly surprised by the quality of the writing as well as the helpful tips it contains. The writing style is very relaxed and the author makes learning about strategies for a successful garden a lot of fun. I was also surprised by all of the different topics that are covered in this guide...such things as advice on watering, fertilizer, "good" garden insects and many others. If you're not a green thumb (like me), you really should pick up this guide. I do believe that if anyone follows the tips it contains he or she is sure to take their gardening to the next level.
