Abstract/Contents:Discusses interest in lawns and ornamentals in 1965. States that "interest in lawns and ornamentals seems to become stronger with each passing year. This is understandable in terms of the rapidly increasing numbers of home owners and the exploding population within the boundaries of [Ohio]." Reports that "it is estimated that the annual maintenance cost on home lawns in Ohio approaches $200 million per year. There is good reason to believe that the annual maintenance of the 75,000 acres utilized for golf courses in Ohio would run close to $40 million."
Note:"September 1965"
