“Gardeners should look no further than The Florida Lawn Handbook to help green up their lawns. It’s chock-full of ‘how to do it’ information from the University of Florida’s turf experts. Now there is no excuse not to have an attractive, earth-friendly lawn.”—Tom MacCubbin, radio host of Better Lawns and Gardens, Orlando
