Product description


How do you design a landscape suitable for its intended uses? How can the natural landscape be enhanced with new features and focal points? How can you make pedestrians stay on the footpath? What sort of contract should you choose for your client's contractor? This introduction to landscape design aims to tackle all of these questions and guide the student through the many facets of professional practice and welding together the artistic, legal, financial, environmental and management issues. The relative merits of hard and soft landscaping are examined and the book provides a step-by-step guide through all the stages of project management, from initial discussions and site inspection, to final plans and drawings and maintenance.
