Most gardens have a lawn, but all too often it fails to live up to the gardener's expectations of a lush emerald sward due to the effects of neglect, wear and tear, drought, weeds and moss. This book will help you design your lawn, making it not only an attractive feature but an integral part of the planting. Restore a neglected lawn, so it becomes a part of teh garden that you want to admire all year round. Maintain your lawn, through a simple programme of cultivation, feeding, and moss and weed control. Enjoy your lawn, rather than seeing it as a chore that takes up time but still fails to reward. "Living lawns" will help you to achieve the lawn that suits your garden and your lifestyle.
