An up-to-date revision of the successful text and reference work on site planning. Several chapters have been expanded, revised and renamed, and there are new chapters on specifications, sports facilities and playgrounds, rooftop gardens, and development design guidelines. Chapters follow phases in the development of a site plan and include material explaining site selection and analysis, land use and circulation, visual design factors and natural elements in site organization, contours, grading and earthwork calculations, site drainage, alignment of horizontal and vertical curves, and details in the landscape. The presentation follows the well-received format of previous editions, covering resource analysis, erosion control and soil loss, and circulation relating to the automobile, bicycle, pedestrian, and handicapped. Includes material on the use of trees in site planning and on residential development concepts.
