Abstract
A manual was developed for those charged with establishing a vegetative cover on completed landfills. Special problems associated with growing plants on these sites are discussed, and step-by-step procedures are given for converting a closed landfill to a variety of end uses requiring a vegetative cover. Instructions are given for vegetating landfills with either limited or adequate funds. A hypothetical case of landfill conversion is also included.
