Professional Landscape Design Book from C.H.I.P.S.

Introduction to Landscape Design
Second Edition
by John L. Motloch

Outstanding explorations of design concepts, principles, and processes.

This Second Edition of Introduction to Landscape Design offers even broader coverage of the environmental, human, technological, and aesthetic issues associated with landscape design than the first edition.

Beginning with the way we perceive, manage, and design the landscape, it moves on to explore the forces that influence land design. An overview of landscape management, planning, and design includes a discussion of the roles and integration of the professions involved, modes of professional practice, and site scale design processes. The book explores the ecology of design and the integration of land design decisions into dynamic systems.

This fully updated new edition:

  • Presents landscape design as a synergism of art and science
  • Addresses the interplay between buildings and sites
  • Provides insights into the breadth of people-environment relationships
  • Places special emphasis on our growing understanding of interrelationships between the landscape and human decisions
