Hedges-Gower says for decades UK gardeners have been given poor advice about lawn care, adding: "And many of today’s TV gardening celebrities would be the first to admit they are not lawn specialists."
He says his book puts this right and goes a step further by "embracing the demand for sustainable and green techniques.
Hedges-Gower added: "Wrongly maligned as a carbon-heavy and non-green garden element, the lawn is not only a national institution – it’s the most eco-friendly part of the entire garden. And my book helps the reader to understand their own unique garden environment and to nurture it. Good lawn care means working with nature, not against it."
He added: "The rise in garden broadcasting and the growth of the internet created a knowledge vacuum. This was soon filled by experts from every other branch of gardening and by sports and turf specialists. Neither of these could provide the specific knowledge required for our domestic lawn care."
