1. "Lawnscaping" by Scotts
Not primarily a book on lawn care, this Scotts book focuses on landscape designs in which a central role is given to turf.
A companion to Ortho's "Complete Guide to Trees and Shrubs", this book is more specific, focusing on trees and shrubs that produce showy blooms.
Beginning with the preliminary considerations of deck construction ("how best to position a deck for comfort and convenience"), you'll learn everything about deck construction basics, including maintenance and repair afterwards.
