Also available on Kindle Before you pull out the lawn mower or sign up for the lawn mower service, grab a copy of this book to get insight on a strategy that will allow you to efficiently earn the best lawn in the neighborhood and that will keep you from wasting time and money on losing battles. Among the variety of books on lawn and garden, it has been impossible to find one that combines a concise strategy and actionable tactics with clear photographs of the weeds that are causing your lawn care problems. That gap has now been filled. How do you come up with a schedule for lawn feeding? When do you apply feedings to your lawn? What do forsythias have to do with anything? Do pre-emergent applications only apply to crabgrass? Is your lawn supposed to be a pleasure? or a master? These are some of the questions addressed and answered in a short, targeted text of the NC WEED KILLER's strategy for lawn care and weed control. Then there are 31 full color close-up photographs in the Rogue's Gallery of common weeds. Knowing what you are up against allows you to pick the best strategy and target the best weed control herbicide. Luckily, landing in the 7c zone of North Carolina, the NC WEED KILLER has been able to document the weeds that have been creating problems from New York to Georgia, from North Carolina to The Pacific Northwest. And, he has been able to work out the best ways to combat those weeds- and win! With the books available made so large to attract publishers, and so complex that there is too much information, the home gardener has been left without clear guidelines and a concise strategy. With hardcover volumes so large and with those little web site thumbnail pictures on your computer, getting the information out into the garden for good side by side comparison has been difficult, if even possible. Pick up your 8 x 8 A Photo Handbook to Weeds… and head for the yard! A simple plan, portable information, and actions that aren't going to rob all your time and money. You are looking at the answer you have been looking for. Good reading – and Good Successful Gardening!
