Landscape Handbook for the Tropics

£12.99

Product description

What is the work of the landscape designer in the tropics? What should an architect think about when considering the surroundings to buildings? How can an individual develop a garden plot to make it more usable and pleasant? Are there any more guidelines that a construction company executive or estate agent manager can follow when overseeing ground staff in setting out roads, paths and planting on a site? Particularly, what are the pitfalls to landscape design in the tropics?

Those questions are asked daily in the tropical world by people who have little knowledge of landscape design but are suddenly confronted by a landscape problem. Also, since many professions are involved there has been a need for a handbook that the administrator or student can turn to.

Based on more than twenty years of experience teaching and designing in the tropics, Mr Hill has written a book that describes the work of the professional designer in a sufficiently down-to-earth way to be accessible to amateurs and experts alike. Reasons are given for all that is suggested so that the designer may judge the appropriateness of any particular idea to a given situation.

Mr Hill's book takes readers through the biological, chemical, and physical conditions they will encounter to the discipline and managerial aspects of design processes. His book will inspire its users to contribute to a sustainable environment which is so necessary in a tropical world where resources have been over-exploited in the past.

Internally clean and bright. Slight shelf wear to page edges. Creasing to cover.
