Landscape Construction provides detailed instructions for the installation of a majority of landscape elements used today. The text begins with the construction process and pre-construction activities and continues to explain steps of site grading, landscape related utility installation, building of landscape walls, paving sites, construction of wood improvements, placement of fences and free-standing walls, landscape amenities such as pools, fountains, and site furniture, and concludes with the installation of plant material and turf areas. Irrigation installation is not included in this text, since that aspect of landscape work has grown into a specialized construction area.
