Complete coverage of the art and science of planting design

This comprehensive guide provides clear, step-by-step instructions for creating a planting composition, from preplanning and developing a preliminary design to implementing the final plan. It enables designers to strike a balance between technical issues–such as regional vegetation requirements, soil grade, and climate, noise, and erosion control–and aesthetic considerations, including color, form, and seasonal variation.

Generously illustrated with more than 300 line drawings and photographs that reinforce and clarify the material in each chapter, Elements of Planting Design:

  • Offers a full overview of the ecology of planting design
  • Provides in-depth information on plants as design elements
  • Covers planting design for large- and small-scale residential and commercial sites
  • Includes challenging study questions and sample projects

This book covers ecology, process of planting design, the use of plants, and graphic presentations of planting plans. It also covers soils, climate and local requirements as well as color, forms and seasonal effects of plants. A good attempt to achieve the balance between technical issues and aesthetic considerations.
