Première phrase
We are told that the size of the average garden is about 2000 sq. ft, but the difference between one garden and another may be enormous. Lire la première page

3.0 étoiles sur 5 Great for Britain 19 septembre 2000
Par Un client - Publié sur
I found this book strong in many general areas, however, it was written for British lawns, with only a chapter at the end dedicated to American lawns. Of course, there's a lot of overlap between the lawns of the two countries, but many of the names of pests and weeds were not those familiar to us in America. Hence, I could identify the British name for a particular weed in my lawn, but not know what we call it in order to go to my local store and buy the proper herbicide.

3.0 étoiles sur 5 A Reader From Sunny Miami, Florida 11 avril 2000
Par Katrina M Gregorisch - Publié sur
Great step by step information on targeting lawn types and possible problems. It helped me out especially on controlling weeds and brown/empty spots in the yard. However, most of his tips on yard work tells me he hasn't lived in Florida. It is geared twards more seasonal climates. Florida is summer all year around. A South Floridian can disreguard a good portion of this book. If you do live in an area with all seasons this book on lawn care is for you.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 You don't have to be British 15 mars 2004
Par Dimitri Katsaros - Publié sur
There was an earlier complaint about this book being written for Brits... well, it is. However, every single weed, pest, and yes, grass species/variety is listed by its common British name AND Latin name. The latin name is, of course, common to all countries. From there, you could google the Latin name, get an American website, and there you are. For example, I had no idea what Browntop grass was, but easily found that Agrostis tenuis is also called Colonial Bent. I hope this helps anyone who might be confused by some of the terminology.

There are many gardening "expert" books by Dr. D.G. Hessayon and I have read several of them thanks to my local library. This one, above all the others, is hands down a worthwhile investment (especially since I paid $0.01 for it used on Amazon).

I currently live in an apartment and don't have a lawn of my own. I have, however, always been fascinated by gardening and plant care. While I have not compared this book to any other lawn care books on the market, I know that this one has help me with my future preparations of maintaining a beautiful "first-rate" lawn.

This book is divided into sections including the basics of identifying your lawn type, seeding, sodding, fertilizing, mowing, pests, and other problems. Although I don't live in England (since this book is directed towards the British) the information within can be easily applied to most any locale.

Everything you need to know is in here. Some may argue that there are better texts out there, and they may be right since I have done little in the way of exploring; but, it certainly is a great place to start.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Not In England 14 janvier 2001
Par "eman846" - Publié sur
I do not live in England and I found this book to be very informative. The author presents the information in a manner which is very easy to understand even for a novice gardener. The pictures, illustrations and schedules for lawn maintenance are wonderful. This book will not tell you of every disease or lawn problem but the information contained within will certainly complement information drawn from other lawn books printed for lawns in the U.S.
