New book on soil

Groundskeepers have the extraordinary task of convincing turf to grow where it otherwise wouldn’t. The sands beneath elite fields, the compacted clay of cricket wickets, and ever-increasing hours of foot traffic are at odds with what plants consider a hospitable environment. The challenges of urban green space management are just some of the topics covered in Grounded, a new book by soil scientist Alisa Bryce.
