Lawns are deemed an essential element for any home landscaping design. The types of grass that flourish best in Wisconsin's horticultural zone, varied soil conditions, and climate are superbly presented in depth and detail by horticulturist, gardener, and lawn specialist Melinda Myers in "The Wisconsin Lawn Guide", a 159-page compendium of information, advice, commentary, and resources. Featuring the best grass varieties to be employed in a Wisconsin environment, "The Wisconsin Lawn Guide" also features a maintenance schedule for a well kept lawn, detailed and illustrated explanations of methods for planning new lawns, renovating existing lawns, dealing with commonly encountered lawn problems ranging from weeds and diseases to insect pests, the role of fertilizers, watering, and mowing. Enthusiastically recommended for personal, professional, agricultural school, and community library collections in the Badger State, "The Wisconsin Lawn Guide" should be considered a 'must read' for anyone charged with the responsibility of lawn care for a Wisconsin property bet it urban, suburban, or rural.
