"In pursuit of the perfect lawn," from the Whistling Gardener

Originally reserved for the aristocracy, lawns slowly trickled down to the working class and in the US after WWII they became synonymous with suburbia.

The Whistling Gardener's column is about being in pursuit of the perfect lawn.

Let’s face it, for the most part the lawn is the man’s domain. It is literally his “turf” and when left alone he can spend endless hours mowing, edging, aerating, dethatching, feeding, reseeding, watering and weeding not to mention the time it takes to keep his trusty John Deere steed in good running condition.

Okay, I’ll admit a preference for the Navy over the other services. Why? Well, let’s start when I was four years old. My father, a professional musician, got both of us on a radio talent show (in New York). I played “Anchor’s Aweigh” on piano, the theme song of the United States Navy. My father played something non-military. We won the contest and I received a brand new bicycle as my prize.

Fall is a lot like spring only better, from the Whistling Gardener

In this last week of August take stock of your beds and if you are ready to pull out the summer annuals then do it now, spade in some new compost and organic fertilizer.

It’s hard to believe that I am talking about fall when it is still high summer and there is a good one to two months left of decent weather.

In this last week of August take stock of your beds and if you are ready to pull out the summer annuals then do it now, spade in some new compost and organic fertilizer and let the beds breathe for a week or two while you think about what you want to plant for the fall.
