Turfgrasses protect the land from erosion, stabilize the soil, moderate the temperature and provide low cost safe surfacing for many sporting and leisure activities. Amenity grasslands - and turf in particular - do more than form a significant part of the global landscape. They make up the basis of a multimillion dollar industry. International Turf Management Handbook covers the establishment, maintenance, and management of natural turfgrass surfaces. This handbook is arranged in four sections. The first section details the identification and selection of turfgrasses, how they grow, and their maintenance. The second section focuses on the management and administration of the turfgrass business. The third section addresses current standards and their use to effectively manage different surfaces such as bowling, croquet and golf greens, grass tennis courts, cricket tables, football and athletic fields, racetracks, and golf fairways. The final section discusses important environmental issues in turf management, including water resources, pesticides and fertilizers. Developed in association with more than 20 leading turf management authorities, the International Turf Management Handbook details the how the natural turfgrass surface functions. It explores strategies that blend biodiveristy and sustainability with the business of maintaining turf.

In A Life of Growth Through the Heart of the Horse Cryshtal Avera offers insight into her life of growth in the form of stories of her own experiences. Cryshtal's focus on making herself vulnerable and being authentic to connect with others is inspiring. A Life of Growth Through the Heart of the Horse is a book that tells a story of one woman who wanted a good relationship with her horse. A relationship that had started to go downhill and become scary was turned around when the human involved recognized it was she who needed to look inside and change some things; the horse did not need fixing, the human did. That realization began a journey of beautiful awareness and life lessons that present themselves and unfold in Cryshtal's stories. Through business ownership, working with cattle, and most of all one special horse who wouldn't allow Cryshtal to remain blind to the beautiful lessons awaiting her, we see how life can be our very own classroom, and consistently present custom lessons we need as individuals. Cryshtal's goal is to empower you, the reader, to recognize how life's biggest challenges show up to offer you the biggest opportunities for growth and learning. This is a book filled with stories and experiences from the soul of one woman. May you find your path, honor it, and feed your soul everyday. Look for the lessons and be open, they are always available.
