Turf and amenity grasslands in their multifarious form, including sport pitches, playing fields, golf courses, lawns, motorway embankments, roadside verges, urban parks and open spaces, have a significant impact on our everyday lives.

It is essential that all these bodies meet proper standards of provision and manage their grassland efficiently and in an environmentally friendly and cost-effective way. This book will help them to achieve these objectives. Topics covered: grasses and their uses; all aspects of mowing, including the effects on the grass plant and the machines that are available; irrigation; nutrition and fertilizer application; aeration, thatch control and top-dressing; pests, diseases and weeds; turf establishment and renovation; species-rich swards.
