If you haven't read Paul Sach's book on organic lawn care...you need to. What a great book! It can be found at Acres USA site or North County Organics site.

Go to the Acres USA site and when you visit the bookstore it is listed in the eco-Ag section at the bottom. It is called Handbook of Successful Ecological Lawn Care.

http://www.acresusa.com/books/closeup.asp?action=related&prodid=93&pcid=2 = $19.00 on this site.

http://www.norganics.com/bk43.html -- 18.95 on this one

http://www.chebucto.ns.ca/Environment/RATE/Ecological_Turf_Care_Reference_Books.html = on this site is an interesting list of other books.

I wonder if the library has it? It would be nice to look at it first. I do need a source of this type of info.

Just what I need ...another reason to spend some money. LOL

Finally got around to putting up a bibliography of "plant books" on the web:

http://www.ionet.net/~tslade/hortbook.htm

includes all the organic lawn care books that I know about (I have all those books and most of the others listed on the page)

Knowledge is power.....

You're welcome. I was wondering if anyone was going to notice it.

Has any one heard of or know where to get a book that was featured on PBS maybe 10 – 15 years ago called Yardening? This book has recipes for home made yard treatments, such as urine, tobacco tea, and dish detergent. Aged urine was supposedly a good source of nitrogen when diluted, and the tobacco tea (made at home) was a pesticide and the dish detergent used and a surfactant was necessary to break up surface tension of the soil to help with penetration of water and other solutions. There were many things like this, in this book. But I thought the book looked interesting and would like to check it out.
