Weed Control in Garden and LawnWeed Control in Garden and Lawn (Publication #B-909R)
Successful weed control around the home is the result of careful planning and effective management. Gardens, flowerbeds, and borders are not naturally weed free, so a well-planned weed control program with or without herbicides must be used from the time of planting. Weed Control in Garden and Lawn includes drawings and information about 23 different weeds commonly found in yards and explains how to safely use herbicides to treat them.

Low-Maintenance Grasses for Revegetating Disturbed Areas and LawnsLow-Maintenance Grasses for Revegetating Disturbed Areas and Lawns (Publication #B-1070)
Revegetating construction and landscape areas prevents soil erosion from wind and water and stops the problems associated with air- and waterborne soil particles. These areas usually have limited topsoil, mixed topsoil and subsoil, continual dryness, low fertility, and high erosion potential. Low Maintenance Grasses for Revegetating Disturbed Areas and Lawns is a five-page bulletin that describes the different species of grasses and the alternatives to bluegrass lawns. Kentucky bluegrass has been one of the standard choices for lush, green, carpet-like turf, but many people conceive the time and cost of maintenance of bluegrass lawns as too great. However, Kentucky bluegrass varieties that require less water are now available.
