The Preparation and Care of a Lawn 


A well cared for lawn adds more than any other one 
thing to the attractiveness of the home grounds and 
not only this, it increases the value of property by 
much more than the mere expense of securing the lawn. 
There are a few simple rules which, if followed consis¬ 
tently, will be certain to bring good results. 

The ground must first be thoroughly prepared by 
draining, if necessary, and spade or plow to the depth 
of 6 to 12 inches, according to the nature of the soil, 
applying a liberal quantity of well decomposed manure, 
bonemeal or pulverized sheep manure, the latter we 
recommend as being lasting in effect, not liable to burn 
the grass and free from weeds. Clean the ground 


thoroughly and rake perfectly smooth and level, as 
much of the success depends upon this part of the 
preparation. The seed should be sown on a calm day, 
that it may be applied evenly, and at the rate of 100 
pounds per acre, or one pound is sufficient for 400 
square feet. After the seed is sown the ground should 
be rolled with a light roller or evenly tamped with the 
back of a spade. The plot should be mowed every ten 
days from May until September, using a sharp scythe 
in preference to a mower until a close turf is formed. 
Frequent mowing and rolling is necessary to maintain 
a close, even turf. April and September are the best 
months for sowing lawn seed. 


Park Lawn Grass Mixture 

In our lawn mixture we use only the highest quality; extra clean seed and free from weed seeds which abound 
in inferior grades. We use only the choicest low-growing grasses, and a lawn produced from our seeds will main¬ 
tain a rich, dark velvety appearance and a permanent sod. One pound will sow 400 square feet. 

H lb- 35c., 1 lb. 65c., lbs. $1.25, 5 lbs. $2.25, 20 lbs. $8.00, 100 lbs. $36.00. 

Shady Nook Grass Mixture 

A special mixture of grasses adapted to growing under trees and in shady places where it is quite difficult 
to produce a satisfactory growth. y^ lb. 40c., lb. 75c., 2^ lbs. $1.50, 5 lbs. $2.75, 20 lbs. $10.00. 

Suburban Lawn Mixture 

A mixture of suitable grasses for lawn use eliminating the high cost varieties composing a large part in our 
Park Lawn and Shady Mixture. We plan to give a mixture to compete with many offerings containing grasses 
not suitable for such uses. Lb. 35c., 2~y lbs. 75c., 5 lbs. $1.50. 


White Clover. Desirable for mixing with lawn seed 
where soil is poor and sandy. Also desirable at sea¬ 
shore where it is difficult to establish grass. 2 ozs. 
15c., y lb. 25c., y 2 lb. 45c., lb. 75c., 10 lbs. $6.50. 

Kentucky Blue. A superior grass for pastures and 
lawns. Succeeds well in all soils and stands dry 
weather well. Lb. 40c., 5 lbs. $1.75, 10 lbs. $3.00. 

Red Fescue. Suitable for sandy soils and at the sea¬ 
shore. Lb. 40c., 5 lbs. $1.75, 10 lbs. $3.00. 


Rhode Island Bent. One of the best grasses for 
lawns in adapting itself to almost any soil—dry, 
moist or sandy. Very carefully selected stock, 
thoroughly cleaned. Lb. $1.50, 5 lbs. $7.50, 10 lbs. 
$12.50. 

Red Top. A hardy perennial grass, succeeding best on 
moist land. Used extensively in all pasture mixtures, 
remaining green the greater part of the year. Re¬ 
cleaned. Lb. 30c., 5 lbs. $1.25, 10 lbs. $2.25. 


FOR LAWN DRESSING USE 

Wizard Brand Pulverized Sheep Manure 

Application made early in the Spring will produce a thick, velvety green lawn. For old lawns broadcast 
6 to 10 lbs. per 100 square feet, on new lawns 10 lbs. per 100 square feet, raked into the surface soil. 2 lb. pkg. 
20c., 5 lbs. 40c., 10 lbs. 70c., 25 lbs. $1.15, 50 lbs. $1.75, 100 lbs. $3.00.

Novelties 1 


Three Outstanding Novelties for 1933 

New Double Sweet Scented 

Nasturtium — Golden Gleam 

The plant forms a vigorous, large bush which throws out short 
runners, averaging eighteen inches. The flowers commence as soon 
as the plant nears complete development, and at the time it is 
in full bloom the entire plant, including the runners, is a blaze of 
color. The large golden yellow flowers average two and one-half 
to three inches across. They are borne on erect, stiff stems, six 
inches in length. Consequently the flowers stand well above the 
foliage, an arrangement which adds immeasureably to the showy 
appearance of the plant. 

When well grown, the remarkable formation of the petals gives 
the flowers a fully double appearance which is most attractive. 
An ordinary sized bouquet, when allowed to remain in a room for 
a short period of time, will fill the room with fragrance. 

Nasturtium, Golden Gleam Pkt. 15c., large pkt. 50c., oz. $1.00 



Marigold — Guinea Gold 

A distinct type of graceful pyramidal growth, 2 to 23^ ft. high, 
flowers 2 to 23 ^ inches in diameter, brilliant orange with double 
ruffled loose petals; desirable as a cut flower. The usual Marigold 
fragrance is largely eliminated. 

Pkt. 25c., large pkt. 50c., 34 oz. 75c. 


Venidium fastuosum 

(Monarch of the Veldt) 

Large, brilliant orange flowers, three inches across, with a black- 
purple zone at the base of the ray-petals and a dark center with a 
gray-green, wool-like tuft. The plants grow 2 to 3 ft. tall and 
bloom from Midsummer until frost. The foliage is a soft gray and 
forms a splendid background. Fine for garden display and for 
growing under glass. 

Pkt. 25c.

Sweet Peas 


The proper time to spade the garden for Sweet Peas is in the 
Fall, as the longer the soil remains in the rough state the better. 
Give a liberal dressing of well-rotted stable manure, ground 
bone and a dusting of lime. Spade to a depth of 6 or 8 inches 
and allow soil to remain in the rough without chopping down. 
When sowing seed, see that the soil is firmly trodden down, as 
Sweet Peas require not only a deep soil but a firm one. Seed 
should always be sown early in Spring 1 inch deep, and when 
plants are well up thin to 2 to 4 inches apart. Pinch out tops to 
start branching. Support should be given early before plants 
get twisted. When hot, dry weather begins, see that the plants 
are well mulched and well watered. Look out for green aphis 
and keep clean by spraying with solution of tobacco extract. 
Care must be taken to keep flowers picked, as the forming of 
seed pods will stop blooming. 

GIANT SPENCER—Waved Varieties
