ᆁ Paperback [ Fire the Landscaper: How Landscapers, HOAs, and Cultural Norms Are Poisoning Our Properties ] For Free Ꮞ PDF by Phil M Williams ᢞ Rarely does a gardening book raise eyebrows, let alone Hell.Phil M Williams Fire the Landscaper sounds a battle cry defending private property, homesteading and chemical free living weeds and all A former landscaping mogul, Williams exposes the industrys practice of over fertilizing and over mowing lawns, a cycle driven by homeowners chained to such maintenance by Home Owners Association HOA rules or a keeping up with the Joneses mentality Williams also discusses questionable landscaper design and pricing practices, to educate consumers about what theyre really paying for, from below grade trees and shrubs to the lack of permaculture style plantings that can provide food as well as aesthetics.Part biography, part instruction manual for turning lawns into natural and productive garden spaces, Williams describes the pride and pitfalls of homesteading From living with nosy neighbors who cant get their heads out of their mole holes long enough to understand perfect lawns require plant killing toxins that impact land for generations, to downright mean folks who cant comprehend that so called weeds are often edible, and necessary for healthy soil For the intrepid homesteader, it seems, fighting City Hall often comes with nature led land management.Williams bucks the system with style, however, and digresses from instructor to insider often His stories includes a satisfyingly lurid dream sequence worthy of Sinclair Lewis It Cant Happen Here guaranteed to make the reader want to start an illegal mulch pile immediately Damn the HOA, full speed ahead After all, its your property, right Diana Morse The idea of being green has become of a fashion statement than anything of substance Many times it amounts to buying the right car, the right produce, or the right light bulbs What it doesnt do is challenge the overarching narrative we tell ourselves in the first world I think for many people that narrative involves technology saving the day This technological domination and disconnection from nature is a large part of the problem Meanwhile the solutions are simple and right in front of our noses In Fire the Landscaper, I wanted to shed light on a simple but devastating problem that could be fixed with minimal effort Toward the end of my time as a landscaper, I began to question why we maintain properties the way we do I answered the why, with research into cultural bias, group psychology, history, philosophy, homeowners associations, and local ordinances The research was as fascinating as it was disheartening, and at times, utterly ridiculous While it is important to identify the problems and the consequences, it was important to me to offer practical, realistic solutions that anyone could integrate into their busy life I hope readers of Fire the Landscaper enjoy and benefit from the text.
