An invaluable handbook of contemporary landscape design concepts and technical information

Landscape architecture dovetails the needs and desires of the user with the conditions of the site. Plants and hardscape materials contribute line, form, color, texture and visual weight, which interact with proportion, order, repetition and unity to create a pleasing landscape.

1000 Details in Landscape Architecture is a reference catalog to the aesthetic and technical features of outstanding landscape designs chosen from around the world. Through photographs and drawings (elevations, cross-sections, axonometrics and sketches), the book examines landscape architecture as an artistic application that evolves as plants grow, environmental conditions change, and people use the space.

The details in this practical reference have been selected for their capacity to inspire and propose innovative ideas. Divided into thematic chapters, the details are numbered from one to one thousand, and described in concise captions.

This handsome volume is packed with illustrations and the most current technical expertise. Professionals, students and anyone with an interest in landscape architecture and design in general will find it fascinating and eminently practical.
