Dune by Frank Herbert (ha ha ha ha)

Excellent book Sheppard, but not exactly what I had in mind. The closest that Dune has in common with lawn care is coming up with a pesticide for those desert slug thingies. So far, I haven't seen any here in Arkansas.

Sure you've seen that slug. He got elected to the White House (twice!). The American voter found the pesticide.

"Turfgrass Management by Turgeon
Bible of turf maintainance"

I have read Turgeon a bit, and find it lacking somewhat. I wish I could find a better text on tuft.:(

My favorite read to get to sleep at night is "Botanical Latin" by Stearns. Puts me to sleep quickly.:eek:

Best read for me is "Truf Irrigation" by Choate.:)
