9780786888429: The Lawn Bible: How to Keep It Green, Groomed, and Growing Every Season of the Year

Now you can have green grass right in your own backyard, thanks to David Mellor, master groundskeeper of Boston's Fenway Park.

Everyone wants a green lawn, but how do you actually get one? Bags of fertilizer? Weed killer Sod? What about mowing? Everyone knows how to, but do you really know when to? Fenway Park's master groundskeeper David Mellor does. He's been caring for some of the nicest lawns around for years. In The Lawn Bible, Mellor offers you everything you need to know about lawn care for your part of the country, including planting, mowing, feeding, and troubleshooting, as well as tips, illustrations, and anecdotes.

Whether your yard is full shade, full sun, or something in between, David Mellor will help you transform it into the greenest grass of your dreams.

The Gospel of Grass, according to David:

  • How to think like a lawn
  • How to make a lawn child-friendly and a child lawn-friendly
  • What combination of good soil, good seed, and good sun adds up to a great lawn
  • The mechanics and artistry of mowing
  • How to win the war on weeds, pests, and disease

About the Author:

David Mellor is a graduate of Ohio State University with a degree in agriculture and a specialty in agronomy/turfgrass management and landscape horticulture. He has cared for some of the greenest lawns in the nation -- the ballparks used by the California Angels, San Francisco Giants, Green Bay Packers, Milwaukee Brewers, and the Boston Red Sox, where he is currently master groundskeeper. He acts as a sports turf field consultant nationwide, speaking regularly to organizations around the country. He lives in Boston.

From Publishers Weekly:

Mellor, the director of grounds at Fenway Park and a sports turf field consultant, knows his lawns. A self-professed "lawnatic," Muller holds that beautiful green grass is the stuff of memory (remember "that first $5 you earned cutting someone else's lawn"?), the secret to prime curb appeal and even a key to getting in touch with our "agrarian roots." In his comprehensive illustrated guide, he describes the different types of grasses (creeping bentgrass is good for putting greens, while Kentucky bluegrass is a suburban lawn classic), shows homeowners how to determine their soil type (try the "Squish Test"), offers tips for maintenance (mow high during droughts) and even includes directions and diagrams for different mowing patterns ("Your lawn is your canvas"). His section on lawn pests features drawings of the insects that plague lawn owners and lists ways to get rid of them, from the "beneficial nematodes" that prey on pest larvae to insecticidal soaps to chemical pesticides. For those who take their lawns very, very seriously, there's a gold mine of information in here, all clearly organized and thoughtfully presented.
