Good Reading?

Anyone know of some good landscaping or lawn maintenance books out there? Always like to brush up on material and there are a lot out there but I'm just curious which ones are good.
Thanks for the help

There is a ling on this site that has good stuff. I would recommend The Ortho Home Gardener's problem solver. It's like the $500 one just cheaper.
I also use a Scott’s book that is very easy for customers to understand and cheap. If someone bugs me I tell them the book name and suggest it’s a great way for home owners to learn how to care for their lawns right.

Amazon is where I got all my stuff. If you take any training classes look at what the teacher is using and find it on Amazon.
