Site Planning and Design Handbook

by Thomas H. Russ

A complete site planning handbook reflecting the challenges and concerns of the new millenium!

Site Planning and Design Handbook bridges the gap between the traditional methods of site planning and design and our growing awareness of sustainability issues.

  • Site analysis
  • Environmental assessment
  • Grading
  • Design for traffic control
  • Open space design
  • Project management issues, including permitting and quality assurance
  • Historic landscapes
  • Preserving trees
  • Storm water management
  • Materials specifications and standards

Site Planning and Design Handbook is the perfect vehicle for landscape architects, civil engineers, architects, and planners and developers who want to successfully create within the “new design paradigm.”
