From the Back Cover:

"Using contour lines is the only precise way of communicating the grading of freely shaped landforms in plan; so you had better become an expert!" Professor Hans Loidl, landscape architect and lecturer A landscape architect has to consider functional, aesthetic and ecological criteria when making design decisions. Grading is of elementary importance in the decision-making process – in addition to planting, it is one of the landscape architect’s most important tools. This book deals with the basics – landforms, scales, gradient, interpolation, spot elevations, contour lines, and cut and fill calculations – as well as delving into more specific topics such as landscape stabilization, stormwater management and grading on the construction site. It reviews the potential of digital site modeling and its application to the actual staking out of sites and remote control systems for machinery. The book closes with a number of inspiring projects and a set of practical exercises, which will assist readers, landscape architects and architects alike, in becoming familiar with site grading as one of the most important design tools in landscape architecture.
