About the Book

As a ready reference for landscape designers and as an indispensable time-saving tool, Landscape Detailing is an essential for the design office.

Each section begins with technical guidance notes on design and construction and then provides a list of points against which specifications can be checked. This is followed by a set of drawn-to-scale details sheets. These details can be traced for direct incorporation into the set of contract drawings. A list of relevant British Standards, references, bibliography and a list of associations and institutions indicate where further guidance can be obtained.


'Whilst this is another 'must' for a garden designer's bookshelf its success will be shown in years to come in better landscape detailing and in better built items of hard landscaping.'
