Overview

*** Well Formatted Edition with an Active Table of Contents ***

A great looking lawn doesn't have to cost hundreds of dollars or require the use of a professional lawn care service. All you need is this incredible book!

Here is what you will find inside this book:

• How do you pick out the right grass seed for your climate?
• Is there really a right and wrong way to mow your lawn?
• How do I get rid of those pesky weeds?
• What about fertilizers - which one should I use?
• And much, much more!

Did you know there are over a hundred varieties of grasses in the world that can be used for landscaping? Making a decision like which seed you should use can be exasperating and just plain confusing. This book tells you about the most popular types of grasses out there and which ones are suited for particular climates.

Then it goes even further. It tells you about watering your lawn to promote growth, what to look for in a fertilizer, and even how to pick out a lawn mower. Even the lawn care novice will be able to cultivate a beautiful and lush lawn after reading this book.

Weeds are the bane of any lawn care regimen. And with some of those weeds, there's not much you can do to get rid of them without killing your grass. Do you know how to recognize and get rid of these weeds?

• Crabgrass
• Bentgrass
• Dandelions
• Moss
• Mushrooms
• Chickweed

Inside the pages of this book, you'll learn ways to get rid of these weeds forever or at least keep them from taking over your whole yard.

A huge rule of thumb in lawn care is to use offense rather than defense when it comes to weeds. That means preventing them from appearing in the first place is the best practice so you don't have as much to worry about when it comes to removal and control.

Even if you have no clue where to start, "Caring for Your Lawn" can get you there.

Don't have a lawn mower yet? No problem! This e-book reviews the top types of mowers and gives characteristics of each so you can make the right decision about which mower is right for you. Plus, it gives a step by step guide on tuning up your mower and how to prepare it to withstand winter.

Landscaping is also part of making your yard something to be proud of. "Caring for Your Lawn" tells you about the most popular plants, shrubs, and trees that will make your yard beautiful. See beautiful full color photos of:

• Azalea bushes
• Butterfly bushes
• English Boxwood Shrub
• Winterberry Holly
• And More!

Plus, learn what conditions these plants need to grow best in and how to place them in your yard so you get the look you are trying to achieve.
