Experts in the field of organic gardening have compiled a technical manual suitable for students in horticultural programs and professionals ready to incorporate organic gardening into their maintenance methods. Readers should be aware that there may be differences of opinion on certain practices. Nevertheless, there is a great deal of evidence organized in this work to support the advantages of organic techniques over those heavily dependent on chemical solutions. Recommendations by the authors certainly could work on different scales of operations, such as lawn care.
