What's the best way to keep your lawn healthy, long-lasting and green? How short should you mow your lawn? When is the best time to fertilize? How can you save money on lawn and garden equipment? Distinguished horticulturist Wes Porter answers all these questions and more in this newly updated edition of Green Side Up. Fully illustrated with close to 100 line drawings and augmented with engrossing tidbits of lawn and garden trivia, Green Side Up is a handy and delightful resource for any gardener battling the all too short summer season. Includes an extensive list of Canadian and American sources for seed, turf etc. as well as a list of web sites related to lawns and gardens.

"[Wes] Porter, formerly a horticulturalist with Sheridan and White Rose nurseries, offers a clear and competent tour of such topics as establishing a new lawn, banning pests and weeds (helpful black and white illustrations), equipment maintenance, underplanting with bulbs and lawn ornaments." - Kate Harries, The Toronto Star "Porter, a well-known columnist and media personality, manages to make lawn growing interesting and even amusing (at least if you like bad puns). More important, his book is very informative. It is handsomely illustrated with black-and-white sketches and photos and includes recommendations for commercial products in the text as well as in the Resource section." - Canadian Book Review Annual "[Wes] Porter, formerly a horticulturalist with Sheridan and White Rose nurseries, offers a clear and competent tour of such topics as establishing a new lawn, banning pests and weeds (helpful black and white illustrations), equipment maintenance, underplanting with bulbs and lawn ornaments."- Kate Harries, The Toronto Star "Porter, a well-known columnist and media personality, manages to make lawn growing interesting and even amusing (at least if youlike bad puns).
