HASH(0x9b440324) étoiles sur 5 A comprehensive map for the would-be beginner and a fantastic reference book for the experienced organic landscaper. 12 mars 2012
Par Vicki Liston - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
As spring begins to show signs that it's right around the corner, stores ready themselves for the influx of customers looking to buy their lawn care essentials. But what do you do if the prospect of spreading poisons and dangerous chemicals on the same ground your barefoot children and pets run around on doesn't exactly appeal to you? Then it's time to start thinking about lawn care in terms of organic standards. And author Sandy Baker has exactly what you need to get started in her book, "The Complete Guide to Organic Lawn Care: Everything You Need to Know Explained Simply"

"The Complete Guide to Organic Lawn Care" is a comprehensive book, details a myriad of steps, organic options, and common problems inherent with transitioning a lawn from `traditional' to `eco-friendly'. Baker begins with the various reasons why people may want to switch and then gets into the actual concept of what organic lawn care entails. Later, she explains how to get your soil tested so you know what nutrient deficiencies you are up against and how to overcome them. She gives helpful hints for getting rid of weeds, pesky insects, fungus, and other unwelcomed infestations. There is even a section on how to mow your lawn the correct way.

Chock full of ideas and possibilities, the book is a map for the would-be beginner and a fantastic reference book for the experienced organic landscaper. Baker is thorough in her explanations, ensuring that her methods are understandable for any reader regardless of skill level. Well-organized, the book flowed from one section to another with ease. I only noticed one small issue with the editing: page 230 discusses weeds and some various ways to stop them. Baker notes, "Instead of digging the weeds up individually, use the vinegar and citrus oil method for that small area." However, this `vinegar and citrus oil method' had not been discussed prior nor is it addressed after this reference is made. It wasn't until I got to the end of the book that I found an appendix. Appendix D (page 273) explains this method and details the recipe. Had I not browsed the appendices, I would not have found this recipe and the `vinegar and citrus oil method' I'd read about on page 230 would have remained an irritating, unanswered question. This issue could be easily fixed with the addition of a short notation, like "(see Appendix D, page 273)" immediately following the first mention of this new method.

"The Complete Guide to Organic Lawn Care" is a must-read for anyone looking to leave behind the traditional, unnatural way of caring for their yard. Sandy Baker's safer, eco-friendly steps allow for a healthier - and eventually even easier - way to maintain everything underfoot!

The first organic lawn care book I have purchased. It was really pretty good. The book seems to be more about northern lawns. Most of it is generic, but still kind of get a northern feel. I also wish the book gave some brands for the products they are saying to use.
HASH(0x9b43fbac) étoiles sur 5 Really informative! 19 août 2012

In the Back to Basics Series (Growing), they have "The Complete Guide to Organic Lawn Care: Everything You Need to Know Explained Simply" by Sandy Baker. I am terrible at properly taking care of my lawn, so I couldn't wait to get my hands on this book.

The author covers begins with going over the problems with traditional lawn care and the benefit of organic lawn care. One of the reasons I want an organic lawn is because of the toxic chemicals that most people use on their lawns and the signs that are put up that children and pets need to stay off the lawn for a certain amount of time. That seems crazy to me that you would put chemicals down that would be very harmful to people and animals. The author also states that traditional lawns have grass blades that are weaker and are more susceptible to disease. Her reasons for going organic include it being safe for people, animals and the environment and it actually is less expensive than traditional lawn care to take care of.

The author encourages you to take a sample of your soil in to be tested. I did this (it is really easy, just bring it to your local cooperative extension where they will usually test it for free. You can find your local extension by going to[...]). Once you know what you soil needs, then you are ready to begin the transition to organic lawn care.

This book covers a lot of information and I know that I will be going back to it a lot during the year to make sure that I am doing what is needed.

HASH(0x9b482b70) étoiles sur 5 Well written?! 17 décembre 2012
Par Ralph Boragine - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
I say well written because it is a very easy read, and it has some good information - but, at 288 pages a lot of dethatching is in order. I would have given it 5 stars if all the filler was removed and we were left with maybe 100 pages divided into thirds 1. how to, 2. definition of terms and 3. resource guide. When each chapter refers back to previous or future chapters for the explanation it begins to become obvious that a lot of backfilling is going on.

The Complete Guide to Organic Lawn Care is very well titled. The concepts are very well explained and easy to understand for the average homeowner. Even if you just want to perform some of the steps, they are all there to show you what to do. Very informative. Highly recommend.
