Overview

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

Editorial Reviews

From The Critics
Bertauski (Trident Technical College) created this text to teach students in introductory landscape design basic drawing and drafting skills. Though computer graphic software and techniques are described, the bulk of the text teaches the materials and techniques used for drafting by hand. Clear and frequent diagrams and examples accompany the text. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR

    Great for beginners!

    This book is terrific if you would like to know the basics of landscape plans! The book shows the right and wrong way to draw out plans, which i found to be a very useful teaching method. I strongly recommend this book for anyone who is interested in landscaping and is just starting out.
