  • Ideal for both working professionals and students, this classic work serves as a truly comprehensive resource for site design and planning. Now in a new and fully updated Fourth Edition, A Guide to Site Planning and Landscape Construction presents both design elements and technical site planning information in a clear, concise, and highly visual format. As a teaching tool, it guides the reader through the actual development of a site plan, and demonstrates how to carry out the necessary calculations and specifications.

Its broad range of coverage makes it an excellent study guide for the registration examinations in both architecture and landscape architecture
