• ORGANIC LAWN CARE

    A lush green lawn is one of the great pleasures of the natural world, whether it’s right outside your front door or on a majestic fairway at a legendary golf course. But anyone who has tried to grow the perfect lawn the conventional way knows it requires an endless cycle of watering and applying synthetic fertilizers and toxic chemical pesticides that cost a lot of money and kill all the life in the soil, on the surface, and on the grass. Fortunately, there’s a better way. Organic lawn care is not only healthier for the environment, it’s actually cheaper and less water-intensive, whether you’re managing a small yard or acres of turf.

    In Organic Lawn Care: Growing Grass the Natural Way, Howard Garrett takes you step-by-step through creating and maintaining turf organically. He begins with the soil, showing you how to establish a healthy habitat for grass. Then he discusses a variety of turfgrasses, including Bermudagrass, bluegrass, buffalograss, fescue, ryegrass, St. Augustine, and zoysia. Garrett explains in detail how to establish and maintain a lawn, including planting, mowing, watering, fertilizing, composting, and managing weeds and pests. And he offers alternatives to lawn grasses and turf, describing the situations in which they might be your best choice.

    Follow the program in Organic Lawn Care, and don’t be surprised when your water bill drops dramatically and your lawn or golf course is the best-looking one around.

  • PEAS AND THANK YOU

    CLEARANCE $9.66 When Sarah Matheny, creator of the popular blog Peas and Thank You, decided to eliminate animal products from her diet, she knew there'd be skeptics. Her husband was raised on the standard American diet. Her grandpa was a butcher. Her mom was the best home cook around, with a generous pat of butter here and a crumble of bacon there. But Matheny was a mom now, and she wanted to feed her children right.

    Out went the diet soda. In came the smoothies.

    Out went the "nutrition" bars. In came the nutritious cookies.

    Out went a tired, caffeine-fueled mom. In came Mama Pea.

    Peas and Thank You is a collection of recipes and stories from a mainstream family eating a not-so-mainstream diet. It's filled with healthy and delicious versions of foods we've all grown up enjoying, but with a Mama Pea twist-no meat, lots of fresh ingredients and plenty of nutrition for growing Peas. From wholesome breakfasts to mouthwatering desserts, there's plenty here to satisfy the pickiest Peas in your life. It's easier than ever to whip up crowd-pleasing meals that will have the whole family asking for "more, Peas."

    • 4 48" FiberTuff™ support posts
