Overview

With a focus on the process of design, this book's practical approach serves users with a design manual for those interested in gaining knowledge and developing skills in the design of landscapes for private residences. This useful reference clearly illustrates and discusses the actual procedures and underlying principles utilized by experienced residential landscape designers. Extensive illustrations in the form of plans, sections, elevations, diagrams and perspectives show users the application of material presented. Content provides the quality fundamentals of residential site design—exploring functional and artistic elements, with a focus on appreciation of quality and updated standards for site development, maintenance techniques and training. Architecturally responsive design material is emphasized throughout—examines landscape designs and structures that blend with the existing house character. Includes useful chapters on Functional Diagrams and Form Composition—critical subjects in creating functionally and visually successful design solutions. Also features reorganized and revised chapters—expanded section on planting design (Ch. 11); and Chapter 14 on Design Alternatives. A good reference for those who are beginning their design careers, as well as those currently practicing residential design.
