Description Chapters Extended Information
 

Perfect for use as a study guide for the most difficult section of the Landscape Architecture Registration Exam (LARE) or as a handy professional reference, Site Engineering for Landscape Architects, Fifth Edition gives readers a strong foundation for engaging in site development that is environmentally sensitive and intellectually stimulating.


The leading guide to site design and engineering, now fully updated.

The leading choice for site engineering, planning, and construction courses, as well as for practitioners in the field, Site Engineering for Landscape Architects, Fifth Edition introduces the principals and techniques of basic site engineering for grading, drainage, earthwork and road alignment. The Fifth Edition maintains the text’s recognized quality, while revising its content to keep readers up to date with current technologies in the file of landscape architecture.

Introducing landform and the language of its design, the text explores the site engineering concepts essential to practicing landscape architecture today - from interpreting landform and contour lines, to designing horizontal and vertical road alignments to construction sequencing, to designing and sizing stormwater management systems. Integrating design with the construction and implementation processes, the authors provide students with a progressive understanding of the subject matter.

This new edition expands its coverage of such current topics as sustainability, green roofs, bioengineering, and lightweight and structural soils. It also features new case studies, as well as inspiring graphics and color photos with real-world examples.
