Written by Don Williamson. Published by Lone Pine Publishing, 2005.


Awareness of the negative effects of chemical pesticides on our environment and our health has never been higher. In response, many Canadian municipalities have enacted or are considering bylaws that ban the cosmetic use of pesticides. In light of the growing public awareness of this issue, garden writer and turf expert Don Williamson has written a timely new book that provides comprehensive knowledge and information on how to grow and maintain a chemical-free lawn for Canadian conditions.

Filled with photos and illustrations, Lawns for Canada covers:
  • the most common turfgrass species in Canada
  • soil and nutrient requirements
  • planning for existing light and water conditions
  • lawn installation techniques
  • maintenance, including fertilizing, aerating and thatch control
  • pest management for insects, weeds and diseases
  • troubleshooting, including lawn repair and renovation
  • an annual lawn maintenance calendar
  • low-maintenance and groundcover alternatives
Veteran garden writer Don Williamson is the co-author of over a dozen popular gardening guides. He has extensive experience in the design and construction of annual and perennial beds in formal and informal landscape settings.
