This project requires the trainee to care for lawns; work safely with and maintain grass cutting machinery; plan, prepare, and cost a display of spring bulbs; and learn about grasses and their diseases. Included in the guide are the following components: project information, a summary of the content and approach of the guide, supervisor's notes, background information, lists of tasks and core skills, an action plan that includes suggested learning activities, supervisor and trainee review sheets, and an assessment form.
