    Hi....was wondering if any of you had some good recommendations on turf management books. I like really big pictures!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! The book needs to contain weed identification too....

    Thanks!

    Ill list a few textbooks we had to get for my turfgrass science major at UConn. One is based towards golf courses, but all the information is relevant and discusses aspects of grass etc.


    Turfgrass Science and Management Third Edition
    by Robert Emmons

    Turf Management For Golf Courses Second Edition
    By James B. Beard

    For weeds, I have an awesome book....although its aim is towards the northeast

    Wees of the Northeast
    by richard h uva

    I would check locally. You may find a great, "regional specific" book at a hort school or ag. extension.

    Yes go to your closest hort schools bookstore. They are usually regionl specific and they have the best selection too.

    Go to your local extension service, they usually will have many books for weed and grass identification tailored to your area/zone.
