Materials/Applications

Materials and Their Applications in Landscape Design

by Rob W. Sovinski

This single-source reference offers an encyclopedic and systematic approach to the broad palette of materials commonly used in landscape construction. Connecting the technical aspects of landscape architecture with design aspects, the book's encyclopedic approach takes the reader systematically through the broad palette of available materials, including wood, brick, asphalt, stone, concrete, stone and aggregates, and more. It also introduces readers to the systems in which these materials are used, including walls, decks, pavement, and steps and ramps. Addressing sustainable issues related to each covered material, the book features hundreds of images, from construction details and design drawings to photographs of materials in the built landscape, along with examples from leading design firms.
