Lawns and Greens, Their Formation and Management (eBook)
by T. W. Sanders (Author)
One of the chief charms of a well-ordered garden is its beautiful velvety green turf. As a famous garden artist has so aptly expressed: The lawn is the heart of the true British garden. In no other country is this delightful feature of the garden seen in such perfection in normal times as in this sea-gin isle. Every owner of a garden prides himself upon the possession of a good lawn, and well he may do so, for there is nothing forms so exquisite a setting «30 a ﬂoral picture as an expanse of emerald-green grass, and no costly carpet can ever vie with the springi ness or elasticity of well-kept turf. Granted that the lawn forms so essential a feature of the ﬂower garden, it naturally follows that every owner of a garden wants to know the correct methods of forming a lawn, and also of its subsequent management. To meet these requirements the present Handbook was published some years ago, and it met with such appreciation from the public that two editions of it have been exhausted, and a third one is now presented to meet a further continued demand for copies.
