Editorial Reviews

From Booklist

Two of the best native grasses being used for lawns are buffalo grass and red fescue, Daniels posits in his introduction. These two as well as other grasses and sedges (grasslike plants) can be used in place of a traditional lawn without using synthetic fertilizers and pesticides and without putting an unnecessary strain on limited water resources. Experts on native grasses and sedges, nursery owners, and horticulturists have all contributed chapters. Five chapters focus on specific grass and sedge varieties suitable for use across a wide geographic range. Another six deal with native grasses that are best suited for specific regions and offer tips on how to grow them. A final chapter provides step-by-step instructions on starting native grasses for every region, as well as a list of seed suppliers. This helpful paperback in the publisher's 21st Century Gardening series contains many color photographs and illustrations. George Cohen

5.0 out of 5 stars Unique resource December 10, 2002
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
If you are considering putting in a low maintenance lawn or meadow suited to your local climate, this is the book for you. I have not found anything to compare with the information packed in this slim volume. The authors examine the requirments of each geographic region and each type of grass available in detail, and even give a list of sources. With the information I gleaned here, I'm ready to get started on my own project this year. Without this book, I wouldn't have know where to begin.

5.0 out of 5 stars AWESOME July 17, 2007
By D. Lyon
This book is easy on the eyes for those who want to "get to the meat of it." Great pictures and easy to understand instructions on each type of lawn and for each region of the US. The price makes this knowledge available to more people who are interested in a beautiful lawn with less work and less money.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great resource on grasses January 16, 2010
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I just read this book, and I know I will refernce it many times as I work on the grassy areas around my house. I have been reading a fair bit about native meadows and lawns, and this book is a very concise and condensed starting point. Really good stuff on California without making it too complicated.

This is a great book for those looking to replace high-maintenance sod-grass lawns with native or introduced plants. Many options are provided along with detailed planting instructions. (I chose white clover.)

2.0 out of 5 stars Easy Lawns April 1, 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This little book is over rated. I expected solutions from the BBG. Should have returned it to Amazon. Not sure if there is a publication on the market addressing this challenging garden quandary.
