MODERN LAWN CARE - THE BOOK
The Complete Guide to a Happy and Healthy Lawn
In recent decades we've seen an explosion of interest in gardening, driven especially by horticultural media personalities, experts in everything from roses to recycling. But the poor lawn wasn't invited to the party. It's no surprise, therefore that in absence of expert help, many gardeners were won over by alternative design ideas such as decking, hard landscaping and even fake grass!
This book, written by the most forward-thinking lawn expert, will put the lawn back where it belongs- at the centre of our gardening activities.
David Hedges-Gower is a man who loves lawns - not just 'perfect' specimens but any lawn that is designed and maintained to do the job it needs to do, from play areas to croquet lawns, immaculate front lawns to golf greens. And with his experience he knows that with the right information and support, a lawn needn't be a bother; it needn't be yet another patch of land dug up to be replaced by easy-maintenance paving or as as excuse for a swimming pool! Your lawn can be something you truly love and enjoy nurturing through the year. And it can be even more than that.
Did you know, for example, that the humble garden lawn:
Filters and absorbs rainfall
Captures far more CO2 than your powered mower produces
Traps much of the dust and debris that falls on our gardens
Gives us a relaxing environment which reduces stress

Helps to keep the garden much cooler in summer
Enhances the look and value of our properties?
