Product description


For introductory courses in Landscape Drawing and Landscape Design. This highly-illustrative text gives a detailed account of how to draw effective presentation graphics for landscape design. The focus is on drawing the landscape and developing a plan drawing using symbols, and textures that effectively communicate design concepts to a client. The text takes advantage of tips and techniques that many designers have learned over the years. It also covers the use of drafting tools, section elevation drawing, and the role of digital cameras and design software.

From the Back Cover

Too often introductory courses take for granted that the beginning student of horticulture is already familiar with the tools and drafting techniques associated with the discipline; not so with Plan Graphics for the Landscape Designer. Operating with the assumption that introductory classes must start with the basics, the author meticulously provides an inclusive guide through both the design and drawing phases of landscape design.

Plan Graphics for the Landscape Designer provides an excellent introduction to landscape design, employing a balanced approach that integrates both the technical and artistic aspects of plan drawing and graphics. Also included are sections on the use of drafting tools, how to professionally letter a plan, and the role of digital cameras and design software. A comprehensive section on computer graphics rounds out this exemplary introductory text. Other key features include:

  • A pragmatic, step-by-step approach to creating a highly effective drawing, with the correct use of textures, symbols, and letters
  • An extensive assortment of user drawing and rendering techniques, aimed at teaching effective line drawing to create accurate and attractive documents
  • Instructions on how to draw section elevations to illustrate vertical elements of the design
  • A wide assortment of photographs to accompany the many line drawings
