This handbook which was originally based solely on the particular ground maintenance problems of the Tennessee Valley Authority reservations, is here expanded to recognize the many recent innovations which have been made in materials, methods and equipment and in particular the environmental causes and effects. The book which starts with comments on planning, scheduling and public relations, considers the growing and maintenance of turf, as well as the planting and care of trees and shrubs. The selection, use and maintenance of equipment is covered as well as disease and insect control, and weeds and their eradication. Consideration is also given to soil erosion, maintenance of roads and parking areas, and the maintenance of recreation areas.
