Every year, Americans spend some $38 billion on lawn care. But you don't need to hire a crew of landscapers to have an attractive and eye-catching front yard all that's required is a lawnmower, a few inexpensive items from the hardware store, and a little creativity. Lawnscapes teaches readers how to mow artistic masterpieces directly into their lawns everything from checkerboard squares, hearts, and bull's-eyes to Christmas trees, Celtic knotwork, and much more.

Gardening expert David Parfitt includes patterns for 20 different designs, plus tips on creating your own masterpieces. Packaged with an Astroturf cover, Lawnscapes is the perfect gift for dads across America.
