    There are two books I love and reference alot, the first is buisness oriented.. Green Side Up.. by Ed Laflamme and my favorite for turf knowledge is Lawn Geek by Trey Rogers. Both are full of info. I hope this helps you out.

    "Turfgrass, Science and Culture" by James Beard. It is the bible.

    Also his follow-up book. I don't have it in front of me right now, but it's along the lines of "Turfgrass for Golf Courses:.
