The only comprehensive guide to wood specifically for landscape architects. Wood, with its unique warmth and richness, takes us back to the roots of our building heritage and back to the landscape. Lightweight, simple, and clean to work with, it is one of the most versatile building materials, and-thanks in part to its natural origin-one that is also especially well-suited to the designed landscape. Wood in the Landscape gives you the information you need to exploit wood's full potential in your design work. The first comprehensive guide to the properties, use, selection, and installation of woodwritten from the landscape architect's perspective, it is destined to become a staple in your practice.

It examines the construction methodologies used to build a range of common structures, from fences and decking to gazebos and bridges, and shows how to avoid common problems that can adversely affect durability - particularly important when it comes to outdoor settings. Generously supplemented with over 100 photographs and illustrations, Wood in the Landscape is a terrific source of ideas that will inspire you to explore the many exciting possibilities for using wood to enhance your landscape designs.
