From the Back Cover:

"Landscape Planning. . . could well be described as ‘How to Design with Nature.’” ––Ian McHarg, from the Foreword

 “In North America, there are few places where we have been able to achieve a lasting balance among land use activities, facilities, and environment. . . Planning. . . has been transformed into a bureaucratic process made up of inventories, checklists, and permits, which asks for little understanding of the landscape’s true character.

 The route to finding the true character of the landscape lies in understanding the way land functions, changes, and interacts with the life it supports. . . Landscape planning must do more than respond to mere shapes and features but must also respond to the processes themselves.”––William Marsh, from the introduction to Chapter 3

 This authoritative text provides comprehensive coverage of the key methods and techniques involved in landscape planning. The Fourth Edition is extensively updated and revised to incorporate the rapid expansions taking place in this field. By focusing on landscape processes, systems, forms, and analysis, Marsh’s book has received much praise and is an excellent complement to Ian McHarg’s Design with Nature (Wiley, 1995).

Review:

"Marsh (U. of British Columbia and emeritus U. of Michigan) presents the 25th anniversary edition of his textbook and guide explaining how to deal reasonably with the land in the face of expanding land use and changing technology. Most readers will be in the early stages of their career, he suggests, and he hopes to establish some basic principles they can adapt and apply for a long time." (Book News Inc, November 2010)
