5.0 out of 5 stars Grass for fun or purpose, 3 Mar. 2010
This review is from: The Lawn Expert (Paperback)
Any bit of ground can grow grass and add to life. This book shows how to do it.
For those with lifeless lawns, where bald patches and discolouration have appeared without warning; for those with worn-out patches and overused paths; those with areas where nothing grows except mushrooms and litter: here is the answer.
Grass is fun. You can relax on it, play on it, exercise on it and sit and ponder on it. Any bit of ground will do, provided you know how to bring it to life.
This book makes it possible. No matter how unpromising the patch may look, or how disappointing an existing patch may look, here are the answers to turning it into what you want it to be.
Novice or old hand; back yard or estate: everything you need to know in one easy-to-read volume.
Beautifully illustrated and written to be understood. Buy this and you can ignore all the hefty technical tomes.

5.0 out of 5 stars Early warnings, 3 Mar. 2010
Disappointment, uneasy feelings as leaves change colour, odd look to growing plants? Something is causing it, but how to find out quick enough to save the day?
Here is the easy early warning guide with rescue strategies and avoidance measures for the future.
Just about everthing most growers will ever need to know, illustrated for easy reference, clearly explained and presented in an easy-to-access format.
If every other volume of advice disappeared overnight, we could all survive on this one.

5.0 out of 5 stars New starts and old hands reference, 3 Mar. 2010
For a beginner with no idea what to expect, this provides an excellent entry-level guide. For the experienced grower who identifies new behavour or results, this has to be the first place to turn.
Illustrated to the highest standard, written for clarity, this book should be every growers' companion.
For readers who find they need further detail on pests and problems, or who want to know more about 'organic' or 'green' issues there are the essential elements that are expanded in companion books, but for everyone else, this has to be the "growers' bible".

5.0 out of 5 stars Expert for all readers, 3 Mar. 2010
This book, as typical for this author, is easy to read and understand, makes sense of a subject for the novice and adds to the knowledge of experienced hands.
A joy to read and a timeless resource.
