    Can anyone tell me which books they would recommend a newbie read about lawn care and such. I'm sure the lawns in Canada are much the same as in the States, so cross border reading would be aloud...lol.

    I am unsure if your looking for books on running a lawn maintenance business or looking for books on how to take care of the grass in your lawn.

    suggestion on taking care of grass:
    Jerrybaker.com
    Orthobooks-all about lawns
    www.amerinursery.com - both lawncare and business
    The Chemical-Free Lawn-by Warren Schultz

    Lawn maintenance operations:
    www.turfquip.com/nilsson.html
    www.vanderkooi.com

    Books:
    Lawn Aeration-Turn Hard Soil into Cold Cash by: Robin M. Pedrotti

    A Guide to Developing a Landscape Maintenance Business
    Published by- Associated Landscape Contractors of America and National Landscape Association

    These books can get very expensive so read discriptions carefully
    before you by:

    hope this helps
