Have a Lush, Weed-Free Lawn

Enjoy the pleasures of a perfect lawn! Learn how to conquer crabgrass and other weeds, fertilize properly, adjust soil chemistry, water efficiently, grow grass in problem areas, and use fewer (or no) chemicals.

A great-looking lawn doesn't take magic or an expensive lawn service. You don't need to douse your lawn in mysterious chemicals or spend all your free time obsessively grooming temperamental clumps of Kentucky bluegrass. Just follow a few basic rules from this course, and an hour a week of upkeep.

This course is broken down into lawn care tasks for spring, summer and fall, with detailed instructions for weeding, fertilizing, watering and mowing during each season. You'll learn how to identify and get rid of different types of weeds and how to solve common problems like dead spots, excessive thatch, grub infestations and fairy rings (a common fungal disease). You'll find out how to pick the right fertilizer for your lawn—and even how to get rid of a hopeless lawn and start all over again.
