Lawn Care Certification Course Outline 

Unit One – Planning and Managing a Garden

Obviously, this is a very simple program, and one which might be totally inadequate or inappropriate in many situations. Nevertheless, the basic concept of such a program should apply in all garden maintenance situations.

Learning outcomes of this unit are:

  • Identify the main criteria to consider when planning a maintenance program
  • Identify the 10 areas concerned in parks management
  • Summarize the staffing structure of a Parks Department

Analysis of Parks Maintenance

One of the most important decisions for any Parks authority is the allocation of resources to the maintenance of various facilities.

There should be an informed and unbiased consideration of set criteria in making decisions about relative allocations. All too often though, this does not happen, and the level at which a park is maintained is reached by chance rather than by design.

Departmental and Organization Staffing

A clear staff organization is essential to the efficient operation of any department. To be effective the manager must be skilled in these techniques and able to make changes in staff organization as the need arises.

  • The Standard Areas of Responsibility
  • Grey Areas of Responsibility
  • Building A Staff Organization
  • Model Structure Parks Department
  • Staffing

Works Programming

Parks and Garden Departments are faced with increasing pressure to provide open space areas, parks and gardens, sports areas to a high standard. Parks personnel must be constantly looking for new ways to maintain facilities more efficiently and effectively.

  • New Works
  • Construction Crew

Unit Two – Furnishings and Machinery

Learning outcomes for this unit are:

  • Identify the correct equipment and tools to use for different tasks
  • Explain the ideal conditions for mowing
  • Compare and recommend appropriate outdoor furniture

A Broad Overview of Machinery for Parks Maintenance

There is a large variety of machinery and equipment on the market which can be used to assist with horticultural maintenance. Virtually all of the basic concepts are good but for most individual types of equipment there are both good and bad models.

  • Mowers
  • Aerators/Power Rakes
  • Fertilizer Spreaders
  • Chippers
  • Leaf Rakes/ Vacuums
  • Seeders
  • Hydraulic Pruners
  • Spray Units
  • Irrigation

Power Tools

  • Engine Troubleshooting
  • Dirty Spark Plugs
  • Tool Maintenance
  • Brush Cutters
  • Mowers

Deciding what you need

The more complex the machine, the more that can go wrong with it. Self-propelled, ride on and four stroke cylinder mowers are susceptible to a greater range of problems than a basic two stroke rotary.

Changing Mower Blades

This common mower maintenance task can often be a troublesome, even painful task. Problems such as resultant skinned knuckles and other injuries can usually be avoided by following a few simple rules.

Mulchers

In recent years a number of garden mulcher/shredder/chippers have become available. These range from small, portable, usually petrol driven types for the home garden up to large, heavy duty machines either petrol driven or operated by power take off units attached to tractors and trucks.

Outdoor Furniture

We put outdoor furniture into our gardens for two reasons:

  1. To be used and to embellish or enhance the aesthetics of the garden. The right piece of furniture put in the right place will do for a garden what a well-chosen sauce does for French cuisine (i.e.: Change the whole impression detected).
  2. To be used. Outdoor furniture adds to the way you can use a garden in the same way that furniture adds to the way you can use a house.

Unit Three – Feeding Plants

The learning outcomes for this assignment are:

  • Understand the factors that contribute to nutrition of plants
  • Explain how to improve soil
  • Identify signs of nutrient deficiency

Plant Care – Nutrition

Nutrition should never be considered as a separate subject because its effects are interrelated with other factors such as temperature, light and watering. The object of a nutrition program is to provide sufficient essential nutrients to allow a plant to grow to its maximum potential.

  • Nutrition of Plants in Containers
  • Methods of Applying Fertilizers
  • Combinations
  • Rates of Application

Improving Soils

Before deciding how to, or even whether to improve a soil, you need to know whether a soil is good, bad or whatever. Drainage can be tested easily by observing the way in which water moves through soil which is placed in a pot & watered. However, when soil is disturbed by digging, its characteristics may change.

CATION Exchange Capacity and pH

Cations are atoms which have lost electrons. As such they are particles which have a positive charge. Many important plant nutrients occur in the nutrient solution as cations (ie: Potassium, calcium and magnesium). These particles will attach themselves to media particles which have a negative charge, hence staying in the media and being available to the plant roots for a longer period of time.

Soil pH

Soil pH can be adjusted by the use of chemicals known as soil ameliorants. These include Lime (to raise pH) and Sulphate (to lower pH). However, the soil will tend to buffer the effect of these chemicals and so calculation of the amounts required is often difficult. The general rule is to apply small amounts until the required result is obtained - better too little than too much!

Nutrient Availability and pH

The ease with which nutrients are able to enter a plant is greatly affected by pH. Extremely acid or alkaline soils can often stop nutrients which are present being absorbed and used by the plant.

Diagnosis of Nutritional Problems

The following key may be used to identify nutrient deficiencies from the visual symptoms. Note, however, deficiency may exist

with no symptoms other than stunted growth or reduced yield. Also, combined deficiencies are very common and may not be identifiable from this key. In such cases, laboratory analysis of plant tissue may be necessary to identify the problem. This key will not be useful for diagnosis of Toxicities.

Fertilizers

There is a tremendous variety of different fertilizers available including balanced fertilizers, containing the three major elements, and straight (single element) fertilizers, and everyone is different. Using the wrong fertilizer ... or the right fertilizer at the wrong rate can create problems in your garden rather than overcoming problems.

Nitrogen

Nitrogen can be obtained naturally by growing leguminous plants alongside other plants or as a cover crop to be ploughed in before planting. Legumes (eg. peas, clover, wattles, etc.) have colonies of bacteria in small nodules on their roots. These bacteria don't damage the plant. In fact, they extract nitrogen from the atmosphere and make it available for use by the plant.

Unit Four – Weed Control

In horticultural practice, if weeds are to be controlled, it is critical that they are able to be accurately identified when young. Young weeds are far easier to control than older and more established weeds. There are many different ways of controlling weed growth, and the effectiveness of each technique is related to the varieties of weeds being controlled.

Weed Control Methods

  • Plant Competition
  • Weed Control with Fire
  • Chemical Weed Control
  • Mulching

Weed Control in Greenhouses

  1. Useful safety equipment including respirators or gas masks, and full waterproof clothing.
  2. Put up warning signs on the outside of the greenhouse at all entrances.
  3. Do not enter the building without a face mask unless it has been fully aired for the length of time recommended on the chemical container label.
  4. All possible skin contact with treated plants should be avoided by workers and others, to minimize absorption of dangerous chemicals or skin irritants.

Unit Five – Commonly Used Chemicals

The learning outcomes for this assignment are:

  • Identify the most commonly used chemicals
  • Understand the preventative methods of controlling health

Pesticides

  1. PYRETHRUM (PYRETHRINS)
  2. DIPEL (Bacillus thuringiensis)
  3. CARBARYL
  4. MALATHION (Maldison)
  5. FENTHION

Fungicides

  1. BENLATE (Benornyl)
  2. FONGARID (Furalaxyl)
  3. ZINEB
  4. MANEB
  5. CAPTAN

Types of Herbicide Chemicals

Most herbicides fall into one of the following groups. It is useful to understand this system of classification, because their characteristics are likely to be shared between different chemicals in the same group.

If you know one chemical in a group is either very safe, or very poisonous, it is likely that any other chemicals you encounter within the same group will have a similar danger level.

Treating Problems

  1. Consider the site
  2. Build up the soil
  3. Use healthy plants/seeds
  4. Maintain cleanliness
  5. Maintain nutrition and water needs of the plant
  6. Inspect plants regularly and act as soon as a problem is detected

Unit Six – Natural Pest Control

The learning outcomes for this assignment are:

  • Identify household remedies that can help control pests
  • Identify which mechanical controls can be used
  • Identify the symptoms of diseases, viruses and pests

Natural Sprays

Natural, homemade sprays will rarely give the same spectacular results that you get from carefully prepared products bought from the nursery.

Protective Plants

Celeriac deters caterpillars from brassicas. Ants are repelled by peppermint, spearmint, pennyroyal and to some extent, other mints and tansy. Nasturtium attracts aphis away from other plants. Marigolds give off a chemical from the roots which kills nematodes (reported successful with roses, beans & potatoes).

Diatommaceous Earth

This fine white powder derived from the remains of small animals is safe to humans, but when dusted about the garden, will kill snails, slugs, millipedes, slaters, earwigs and many insects.

Soapy Water

Soapy water perhaps the leftovers from your washing up, sprayed or thrown over plants, will suffocate insects which it covers, acting in much the same way as a white oil spray.

Ways to Control Pests and Diseases

  1. Mechanical control
  2. Hygiene
  3. Biological control
  4. Legal control
  5. General

Unit Seven – Safety Procedures when Using Agricultural Chemicals

Golden Rules for Using Chemicals

  1. ONLY use chemicals when actually needed.
  2. Use the correct chemical for the job at hand. When unsure of which chemical to use, seek advice.
  3. Always read the label and the product information sheets (if available).
  4. Use protective clothing at ALL times.
  5. Use the correct pesticide application equipment.
  6. Do not spray on windy or very hot days.

Keeping Records

Records of pesticide usage are particularly important when using weed killers. The record will assist to:

  • Improve pest control practices and avoid unnecessary pesticide use.
  • Compare applications made with results achieved.
  • Purchase only the amount of pesticide needed.
  • Reduce inventory carry over.

What Information Should be Kept

  • Varieties of plant treated.
  • Pests (weeds) treated.
  • Location and size of area being treated.
  • Time of day, date and year.

Ways of Applying Chemicals

  • Sprayer
  • Duster
  • Granules
  • With irrigation when watering
  • Injection

Understanding Chemical Pesticides

Governments place very firm controls on what pesticides can be sold and the way in which the public can purchase them. Part of these controls involves stipulating that companies spell out in very clear terms all aspects of the chemical the user should be made aware of, both with regard to safety and effective use.

Toxicity

The measure of a solution’s capacity to poison determines the toxicity level. Its capacity to poison will, of course, vary from one organism to another. The chemical may be very poisonous to one type of pest or disease, but not to another. Its toxicity to a pest is not always directly related to its toxicity to people, domestic animals or wildlife.

Unit Eight – Turf Care

The learning units for this unit are:

  • Identify the different types of turf
  • Explain what can influence the growth of turf

Turf Varieties in the Park and Their Maintenance

Grasses were used for lawns as early as the 13th century. The composition was typical of a natural meadow of the time with weeds giving added color at flowering time. By the 16th and 17th centuries we find records indicating the maintenance of Chamomile lawns and bowling greens. The

Turf Grass Varieties

There are many different types of plants suitable for use as turf or lawns. Most species, perhaps with the exception of clover, belong to the family Graminae (i.e. the grasses).

Turf used for lawns falls into two main groups: creeping grasses which spread by sending out runners, and tussock or clump-forming grasses.

Common Environmental Problems

  • Air Pollution
  • Burn of Foliage
  • Drainage Problems
  • Frost
  • Hail
  • Shade
  • Temperature
  • Wind

Unite Nine – Irrigation Systems, the Alternatives and Solutions

Irrigation systems for broadacre and landscaped areas can be classified under five basic types:

  1. Travelling Sprinkler Systems
  2. Quick Coupling Valve Systems
  3. Manually Operated
  4. Semi-automatic
  5. Automatic

Irrigation

There are two main types of irrigation systems which are available to the gardener - sprinkler systems which spray water over plants and trickle systems which drip water directly onto the ground.

  • Do-it-yourself irrigation systems
  • Properly planning your irrigation systems
  • Sprinkler systems
  • Trickle systems

How to Use a Watering System

  • When to water
  • Rate of watering
  • Time length of watering
  • Automatic systems
  • Maintenance of watering systems
  • Watering plants
  • Overhead watering
  • Drip watering

Unit Ten – Maintenance of Plants

The learning outcomes of this unit are:

  • Understand when to prune different plants
  • Describe what protection might be required for plants
  • Explain the importance of good drainage

Plants, which are attended to, and have routine maintenance carried out on them will maintain

good health and live longer. Some types require maintenance more than others, and will die

very easily if not cared for properly, others deteriorate slowly. You should consider the following:

  • How long will a plant live for?
  • When is it going to need to be replaced? Replacement planting should be planned. It is important to phase replacement planting, otherwise you can find a large drain on staff and money to do this work all at the one time.
  • Does a plant require pruning, and if so, how often? Does it tend to drop branches?
  • How susceptible is a plant to pest & disease problems?

Lawn Care Certification Course Outline 

Unit One – Planning and Managing a Garden

Obviously, this is a very simple program, and one which might be totally inadequate or inappropriate in many situations. Nevertheless, the basic concept of such a program should apply in all garden maintenance situations.

Learning outcomes of this unit are:

  • Identify the main criteria to consider when planning a maintenance program
  • Identify the 10 areas concerned in parks management
  • Summarize the staffing structure of a Parks Department

Analysis of Parks Maintenance

One of the most important decisions for any Parks authority is the allocation of resources to the maintenance of various facilities.

There should be an informed and unbiased consideration of set criteria in making decisions about relative allocations. All too often though, this does not happen, and the level at which a park is maintained is reached by chance rather than by design.

Departmental and Organization Staffing

A clear staff organization is essential to the efficient operation of any department. To be effective the manager must be skilled in these techniques and able to make changes in staff organization as the need arises.

  • The Standard Areas of Responsibility
  • Grey Areas of Responsibility
  • Building A Staff Organization
  • Model Structure Parks Department
  • Staffing

Works Programming

Parks and Garden Departments are faced with increasing pressure to provide open space areas, parks and gardens, sports areas to a high standard. Parks personnel must be constantly looking for new ways to maintain facilities more efficiently and effectively.

  • New Works
  • Construction Crew

Unit Two – Furnishings and Machinery

Learning outcomes for this unit are:

  • Identify the correct equipment and tools to use for different tasks
  • Explain the ideal conditions for mowing
  • Compare and recommend appropriate outdoor furniture

A Broad Overview of Machinery for Parks Maintenance

There is a large variety of machinery and equipment on the market which can be used to assist with horticultural maintenance. Virtually all of the basic concepts are good but for most individual types of equipment there are both good and bad models.

  • Mowers
  • Aerators/Power Rakes
  • Fertilizer Spreaders
  • Chippers
  • Leaf Rakes/ Vacuums
  • Seeders
  • Hydraulic Pruners
  • Spray Units
  • Irrigation

Power Tools

  • Engine Troubleshooting
  • Dirty Spark Plugs
  • Tool Maintenance
  • Brush Cutters
  • Mowers

Deciding what you need

The more complex the machine, the more that can go wrong with it. Self-propelled, ride on and four stroke cylinder mowers are susceptible to a greater range of problems than a basic two stroke rotary.

Changing Mower Blades

This common mower maintenance task can often be a troublesome, even painful task. Problems such as resultant skinned knuckles and other injuries can usually be avoided by following a few simple rules.

Mulchers

In recent years a number of garden mulcher/shredder/chippers have become available. These range from small, portable, usually petrol driven types for the home garden up to large, heavy duty machines either petrol driven or operated by power take off units attached to tractors and trucks.

Outdoor Furniture

We put outdoor furniture into our gardens for two reasons:

  1. To be used and to embellish or enhance the aesthetics of the garden. The right piece of furniture put in the right place will do for a garden what a well-chosen sauce does for French cuisine (i.e.: Change the whole impression detected).
  2. To be used. Outdoor furniture adds to the way you can use a garden in the same way that furniture adds to the way you can use a house.

Unit Three – Feeding Plants

The learning outcomes for this assignment are:

  • Understand the factors that contribute to nutrition of plants
  • Explain how to improve soil
  • Identify signs of nutrient deficiency

Plant Care – Nutrition

Nutrition should never be considered as a separate subject because its effects are interrelated with other factors such as temperature, light and watering. The object of a nutrition program is to provide sufficient essential nutrients to allow a plant to grow to its maximum potential.

  • Nutrition of Plants in Containers
  • Methods of Applying Fertilizers
  • Combinations
  • Rates of Application

Improving Soils

Before deciding how to, or even whether to improve a soil, you need to know whether a soil is good, bad or whatever. Drainage can be tested easily by observing the way in which water moves through soil which is placed in a pot & watered. However, when soil is disturbed by digging, its characteristics may change.

CATION Exchange Capacity and pH

Cations are atoms which have lost electrons. As such they are particles which have a positive charge. Many important plant nutrients occur in the nutrient solution as cations (ie: Potassium, calcium and magnesium). These particles will attach themselves to media particles which have a negative charge, hence staying in the media and being available to the plant roots for a longer period of time.

Soil pH

Soil pH can be adjusted by the use of chemicals known as soil ameliorants. These include Lime (to raise pH) and Sulphate (to lower pH). However, the soil will tend to buffer the effect of these chemicals and so calculation of the amounts required is often difficult. The general rule is to apply small amounts until the required result is obtained - better too little than too much!

Nutrient Availability and pH

The ease with which nutrients are able to enter a plant is greatly affected by pH. Extremely acid or alkaline soils can often stop nutrients which are present being absorbed and used by the plant.

Diagnosis of Nutritional Problems

The following key may be used to identify nutrient deficiencies from the visual symptoms. Note, however, deficiency may exist

with no symptoms other than stunted growth or reduced yield. Also, combined deficiencies are very common and may not be identifiable from this key. In such cases, laboratory analysis of plant tissue may be necessary to identify the problem. This key will not be useful for diagnosis of Toxicities.

Fertilizers

There is a tremendous variety of different fertilizers available including balanced fertilizers, containing the three major elements, and straight (single element) fertilizers, and everyone is different. Using the wrong fertilizer ... or the right fertilizer at the wrong rate can create problems in your garden rather than overcoming problems.

Nitrogen

Nitrogen can be obtained naturally by growing leguminous plants alongside other plants or as a cover crop to be ploughed in before planting. Legumes (eg. peas, clover, wattles, etc.) have colonies of bacteria in small nodules on their roots. These bacteria don't damage the plant. In fact, they extract nitrogen from the atmosphere and make it available for use by the plant.

Unit Four – Weed Control

In horticultural practice, if weeds are to be controlled, it is critical that they are able to be accurately identified when young. Young weeds are far easier to control than older and more established weeds. There are many different ways of controlling weed growth, and the effectiveness of each technique is related to the varieties of weeds being controlled.

Weed Control Methods

  • Plant Competition
  • Weed Control with Fire
  • Chemical Weed Control
  • Mulching

Weed Control in Greenhouses

  1. Useful safety equipment including respirators or gas masks, and full waterproof clothing.
  2. Put up warning signs on the outside of the greenhouse at all entrances.
  3. Do not enter the building without a face mask unless it has been fully aired for the length of time recommended on the chemical container label.
  4. All possible skin contact with treated plants should be avoided by workers and others, to minimize absorption of dangerous chemicals or skin irritants.

Unit Five – Commonly Used Chemicals

The learning outcomes for this assignment are:

  • Identify the most commonly used chemicals
  • Understand the preventative methods of controlling health

Pesticides

  1. PYRETHRUM (PYRETHRINS)
  2. DIPEL (Bacillus thuringiensis)
  3. CARBARYL
  4. MALATHION (Maldison)
  5. FENTHION

Fungicides

  1. BENLATE (Benornyl)
  2. FONGARID (Furalaxyl)
  3. ZINEB
  4. MANEB
  5. CAPTAN

Types of Herbicide Chemicals

Most herbicides fall into one of the following groups. It is useful to understand this system of classification, because their characteristics are likely to be shared between different chemicals in the same group.

If you know one chemical in a group is either very safe, or very poisonous, it is likely that any other chemicals you encounter within the same group will have a similar danger level.

Treating Problems

  1. Consider the site
  2. Build up the soil
  3. Use healthy plants/seeds
  4. Maintain cleanliness
  5. Maintain nutrition and water needs of the plant
  6. Inspect plants regularly and act as soon as a problem is detected

Unit Six – Natural Pest Control

The learning outcomes for this assignment are:

  • Identify household remedies that can help control pests
  • Identify which mechanical controls can be used
  • Identify the symptoms of diseases, viruses and pests

Natural Sprays

Natural, homemade sprays will rarely give the same spectacular results that you get from carefully prepared products bought from the nursery.

Protective Plants

Celeriac deters caterpillars from brassicas. Ants are repelled by peppermint, spearmint, pennyroyal and to some extent, other mints and tansy. Nasturtium attracts aphis away from other plants. Marigolds give off a chemical from the roots which kills nematodes (reported successful with roses, beans & potatoes).

Diatommaceous Earth

This fine white powder derived from the remains of small animals is safe to humans, but when dusted about the garden, will kill snails, slugs, millipedes, slaters, earwigs and many insects.

Soapy Water

Soapy water perhaps the leftovers from your washing up, sprayed or thrown over plants, will suffocate insects which it covers, acting in much the same way as a white oil spray.

Ways to Control Pests and Diseases

  1. Mechanical control
  2. Hygiene
  3. Biological control
  4. Legal control
  5. General

Unit Seven – Safety Procedures when Using Agricultural Chemicals

Golden Rules for Using Chemicals

  1. ONLY use chemicals when actually needed.
  2. Use the correct chemical for the job at hand. When unsure of which chemical to use, seek advice.
  3. Always read the label and the product information sheets (if available).
  4. Use protective clothing at ALL times.
  5. Use the correct pesticide application equipment.
  6. Do not spray on windy or very hot days.

Keeping Records

Records of pesticide usage are particularly important when using weed killers. The record will assist to:

  • Improve pest control practices and avoid unnecessary pesticide use.
  • Compare applications made with results achieved.
  • Purchase only the amount of pesticide needed.
  • Reduce inventory carry over.

What Information Should be Kept

  • Varieties of plant treated.
  • Pests (weeds) treated.
  • Location and size of area being treated.
  • Time of day, date and year.

Ways of Applying Chemicals

  • Sprayer
  • Duster
  • Granules
  • With irrigation when watering
  • Injection

Understanding Chemical Pesticides

Governments place very firm controls on what pesticides can be sold and the way in which the public can purchase them. Part of these controls involves stipulating that companies spell out in very clear terms all aspects of the chemical the user should be made aware of, both with regard to safety and effective use.

Toxicity

The measure of a solution’s capacity to poison determines the toxicity level. Its capacity to poison will, of course, vary from one organism to another. The chemical may be very poisonous to one type of pest or disease, but not to another. Its toxicity to a pest is not always directly related to its toxicity to people, domestic animals or wildlife.

Unit Eight – Turf Care

The learning units for this unit are:

  • Identify the different types of turf
  • Explain what can influence the growth of turf

Turf Varieties in the Park and Their Maintenance

Grasses were used for lawns as early as the 13th century. The composition was typical of a natural meadow of the time with weeds giving added color at flowering time. By the 16th and 17th centuries we find records indicating the maintenance of Chamomile lawns and bowling greens. The

Turf Grass Varieties

There are many different types of plants suitable for use as turf or lawns. Most species, perhaps with the exception of clover, belong to the family Graminae (i.e. the grasses).

Turf used for lawns falls into two main groups: creeping grasses which spread by sending out runners, and tussock or clump-forming grasses.

Common Environmental Problems

  • Air Pollution
  • Burn of Foliage
  • Drainage Problems
  • Frost
  • Hail
  • Shade
  • Temperature
  • Wind

Unite Nine – Irrigation Systems, the Alternatives and Solutions

Irrigation systems for broadacre and landscaped areas can be classified under five basic types:

  1. Travelling Sprinkler Systems
  2. Quick Coupling Valve Systems
  3. Manually Operated
  4. Semi-automatic
  5. Automatic

Irrigation

There are two main types of irrigation systems which are available to the gardener - sprinkler systems which spray water over plants and trickle systems which drip water directly onto the ground.

  • Do-it-yourself irrigation systems
  • Properly planning your irrigation systems
  • Sprinkler systems
  • Trickle systems

How to Use a Watering System

  • When to water
  • Rate of watering
  • Time length of watering
  • Automatic systems
  • Maintenance of watering systems
  • Watering plants
  • Overhead watering
  • Drip watering

Unit Ten – Maintenance of Plants

The learning outcomes of this unit are:

  • Understand when to prune different plants
  • Describe what protection might be required for plants
  • Explain the importance of good drainage

Plants, which are attended to, and have routine maintenance carried out on them will maintain

good health and live longer. Some types require maintenance more than others, and will die

very easily if not cared for properly, others deteriorate slowly. You should consider the following:

  • How long will a plant live for?
  • When is it going to need to be replaced? Replacement planting should be planned. It is important to phase replacement planting, otherwise you can find a large drain on staff and money to do this work all at the one time.
  • Does a plant require pruning, and if so, how often? Does it tend to drop branches?
  • How susceptible is a plant to pest & disease problems?
