Starting a Home Lawn
December 31, 1996
Lawns are one of the simplest groundcovers to maintain and enjoy but they require a good soil foundation. Find out how to establish one in this classic publication. Along with providing guidance about how to prepare a site (including a new lawn from seed or sod) and post-planting advice, it describes the characteristics of various turfgrass types, lists cultivars suitable for Idaho lawns, and discusses sprinkler system installations and starter fertilizer applications. Soon your lawn will be the envy of your neighborhood block.
