The important relationship between design and engineering in landscape architecture is explored in detail in this updated edition. The authors use a step-by-step progression to build a full understanding of this relationship. Features of the second edition include new information on grading, stormwater management, runoff, soil conservation and road alignment. Numerous case studies accompanied by illustrations expedite application of the book's information to real-world projects. This book should be of interest to professionals and students in landscape architecture and civil engineering.

A user-friendly guide to site engineering terms, concepts, and procedures Like its celebrated predecessors, this updated Third Edition of the classic work in the field serves three very important functions: It supplies landscape architects in training with the technical know-how needed to transform their design ideas into sites that are physically sound and environmentally sensitive. It arms them with a set of technical and ethical principles upon which to base their aesthetic choices. And it provides practicing site planners and architects with a valuable, single-source reference to current site engineering trends, practices, and regulations. Steven Strom and Kurt Nathan draw upon their extensive experience, both in the classroom and the field, to provide an integrated presentation of site engineering concepts relevant to the practice of landscape architecture. From interpreting landform and contour lines to designing horizontal and vertical road alignments, from construction sequencing to designing storm water management systems, they cover all the bases in a progressive format, designed to make it easier than ever for students to quickly master the terminology, principles, and practices involved in environmentally sound site engineering. They also include many real-world examples and skill-building exercises that further assist in reducing the learning curve.From the Inside Flap:
