Description

All the techniques presented in the original reference work, now on CD-ROM.

Five years after the first edition of Landscape Restoration Handbook was published, its natural landscaping and ecological restoration techniques have become standard and successful practice throughout the nation. They are now in the Landscape Restoration Handbook on CD-ROM.

Naturalization: mutually beneficial for environmental protection and cost savings

By outlining the proper use of naturalization techniques, the print version gave landscape professionals a viable alternative to more intensive management approaches-ensuring a greater degree of environmental protection, while reducing various maintenance costs. Now you access these benefits on CD-ROM.

A comprehensive guide to natural landscaping and ecological restoration

Reviews

"The Landscape Restoration Handbook provides a summary of information not now available in a single volume. This is a useful reference work directed at an audience of both professionals and nonprofessionals…

"The authors are to be commended for putting considerable ecosystem restoration information together in one volume. Landscape managers will find this a welcome addition to their bookshelves."

-Restoration Ecology, March 1994

"Over the twenty-odd years that I have been involved in the environmental movement, people have said over and over, 'Quit telling me everything you're opposed to and tell me what you're in favor of.' Well… here you go. The concepts in the Landscape Restoration Handbook are what Audubon International is for. The United States Golf Association is cooperating with us, along with thousands of existing golf courses across the country, as well as homeowners, corporations, and schools…"

-from the foreword by Ronald G. Dodson, President, Audubon International
