    I was wondering if there is a book out that covers
    some very basic lawn care methods, ie. How to stripe,
    trimming methods, blade sharping, measuring lawns, how to measure areas most effiently and any other general topics

    Thanks for any info

    I don't know of any book. But you can pretty much get all that info right here. Maybe compile your own book!

    I got some when I first started at Lowes. There is some prety good info in them but the internet is full of information on turf related subjects. Read some of the old posts on this forum, it's probably been covered.

    I like Eric's new search page!

    It even looks/acts like a "Table of Contents" for Lawnsite, the "book" with over 2000 authors!
