Emerald Green

I bought this book for my husband and 2 years later.....unbelieveable success. Our neighborhood of clinically trimmed lawns by landscapers actually have asked WHO does your lawn. My husband has given this book to friends and they are always inspired when they see ours. Our neighbor bought it a year after we started. I am happy because I have small kids and if I had a dog, I would be comfortable that all of them were not being exposed to chemicals through their nose, skin by rolling around in toxic chemicals. Simple solutions by Jerry Baker - THANKS!

Another great Jerry Baker book

Even if you don't garden much, you'll love reading all the little stories and tidbits in this book. If you do garden, consider them a huge bonus!

I have the greenest grass in my subdivision!

This is a super book that will give you common sense, easy step methods to the best looking lawn and landscape around. We moved into a new house that had no grass or landscaping when we moved in. Three weeks later, we had neighbors stopping by our house to find out what our secret was to starting and KEEPING grass growing in our difficult to grow clay front yard. This book contains basic fundamentals on pruning, manicuring, and how to's on picking the right grass and ingredients for your lawn.

Unconventional Ideas that work!

This book is filled with common sense ideas that guess what, they work. I love his approach of using simple, and logical ideas that will make you have a better lawn. From easy to mix fertilizer treatments to different ways to aerate your lawn. If you are looking for inexpensive ways to perk up your lawn, this is the book for you.

A Great Practical Guide to Gardens and Lawns

I've been watching Jerry Baker on PBS for a long time. This is a great general book on gardening, lawn, tree and shrub maintenance in general. If I have any complaints, it is that too much information is covered in too little space (one chapter on Vegetable Gardening). I think Jerry is the best. He has a couple of books that specialize in lawn care and other topics. I am going buy these for more detailed information.
