    Lawn equivalent to The Pool School

    First I am not sure if this is the right place, apologize if there is a better place to start this thread.

    Our Pool School is a great webpage, I spent couple hours reading it, then I know most I need to know for my pool.

    My question is: did you find any webpage explain and teach you about Lawn care, as imformative as the Pool School? like carbon/nitrogen ratio, how/when to mown/mulch etc.

    Not like pool school, but there is a residential area at lawnsite.com that I frequent often to ask lawn/landscaping related issues.

    I'll move this post to the coffee bar area

    May I also suggest checking in with your local cooperative extension service. They often have Fact Sheets that answer the questions you were asking. And the information is specific to your locale, weather and soil conditions. A lot of that information may already be online.

    Here are the publications from the UNH Cooperative Extension:

    12' round above ground pool. 3,500 gal. Vinyl liner. Waterway Supreme Hi-Flo 48 frame pump. 1.5 hp. SWG. Sand filter with Zeobrite.

    Thanks, members of Trouble Free Pool, for being so friendly and informative!

    I don't need any lawn help... I've got 4 acres of the healthiest weeds & fire ants you ever saw, and I don't have to do hardly anything!

    Strange as this may sound to you, some people are kind of odd and don't care for weeds and fire ants. Go figure!
