Landscape Construction Volume 1 deals with elements of landscape construction which are required to provide enclosure, privacy, demarcation of land, shelter and security. The elements discussed include free-standing brick and stone walls, fences, gates and railings. Fittings and finishes are also covered. Each section describes the materials, construction and constraints relevant to the subject and a large number of detailed figures and photographs supplement the text and help to illustrate the more important aspects. There is also a section on preservation treatment and painting. The current British Standard references are included.


'The text is well written, a good mixture of technical and background narrative, interspersed with well tabulated technical detail. The series provides an immediate source of information and its strength is to provide the theoretical checks when developing ideas.' The Horticulturist
