    Recipe for success

    Paul Tukey calls The American Gardener's Calendar the first gardening book published in the New World. In 1806, it pushed 'grand and spacious' lawns. In 1830, Edwin Budding invented mechanical lawn mowers. By the mid-20th century, chemical lawn care took off. For synthetic fertilizers and sprays get results now. But in the not-so-long term, their side effects hurt people's health and nature's well-being. And it doesn't have to be that way. For example, visit the organically-cared-only town lawns and athletic playing fields of Marblehead, Massachusetts. Or the compost- and compost-tea-only-fed grasses on the Ross Farm, growers of Texas' organically-cared beef cattle. The author gives a three-year program for saying no to chemicals and yes to aerating, composting, dethatching, mulching, and overseeding. He goes through a yearly calendar, month-by-month. He shows how to fight diseases and pests by weed-reading, soil improvements, plant-based sprays, and good-guy insects. And he summarizes it all in 'one long sentence'. The book is clearly organized and solidly grounded with step-by-step guides, recommended reading, photos, Internet resources, index, glossary, and appendix on lawn games.
