FYI there is a new publication from Cornell

LAWN CARE WITHOUT PESTICIDES. Dr. Rossi begins the publication's 16 pages of informative
and reader-friendly text, accompanied by numerous graphics, with a pragmatic 7-step first year plan covering correct mowing, selecting appropriate grass species, and other important facets. Pest manage- ment plays a major role in growing a desirable lawn and this 2005 publication suggests techniques for minimizing use of pesticides
initially as well as for effectively coping with weeds, insects, and diseases. The work is Information bulletin 248.

"This essential text focuses on reducing environmental stressors on your grass plants as the key to a lush, beautiful, and thriving lawn - and the key to quite possibly never using pesticides on your lawn again."

And only $8.95. Thanks for the tip Suzanne. Less than the cost of a bottle of grub poison.
