    Highly Recommended

    This book is detailed and very easy to follow. The exercises after each section are a big help as well.

    A good book on landscape sketch and graphic

    This book covers almost every aspect of landscape sketch and graphic. It is good for you if you want to learn hand sketch, it is also good for you if you want to create nice CAD drawings. Many of the tree /shrub symbols in both plan views and elevation views are nicely done, they can inspire you to create nice computer blocks for trees and shrubs for plans and sections and elevations. It covers graphic language and design process, basic drafting, lettering (nowadays almost everyone can do nice hand lettering fonts with computer, but this book is still good for assisting you to select lettering fonts or create your custom fonts in computer), freehand drawings and conceptual diagrams, presentation plans, section-elevations, graphic symbols files for elevations and perspectives. All the sketches, plans, sections, elevations and perspectives are nicely done. They can be good samples for landscape architecture students, garden design students, architects, landscape architects, urban planners, and seasoned designers.

    From the future of our fine profession...

    Hey Boston practitioner, I am recent LA graduate, two time National ASLA Honor recipient, and Landscape Architecture Design Thesis Award winner for my accredited school. I have yet to apply to a job because I keep on getting unsolicited offers. In other words, I AM the future of our fine profession and I own, and continue to use this book and think it is a very good resource (and reasonably priced). I would recommend any LA student or practitioner add this book to their library. The graphic style is quick and easy and reads well and the design process (although too concise to be a complete guide) covers the fundamentals in a simple way that makes it easy for students to understand (and easy for people licensed in 10 states to review).

    Outdated and Useless

    The techniques in this book are pathetically outdated and poor examples of how a professional should draw the landscape. I have been in the profession for 20 years and am suprised to see this poor representation of graphics still being marketed and sold to the future of our fine profession. I would hope that if it is required reading for anyone in an accredited school of landscape architecture, it is used as an example of what NOT to do. I know if someone were to use the graphic techniques shown here to get a job as a landscape architect it would be a long time before anyone would hire them. Don't waste your time or the paper. Avoid this book as if it were contaminated meat!

    I was required to purchase this book for my first Landscape Architecture class. It was very helpful in giving me ideas for graphic symbols and helped me learn to draw cars, perspectives, trees, lettering etc. However it doesn't cover rendering at all and will not help with color drawings. I still look to this book from time to time for ideas for graphics.
