Thorough, how-to explanations and illustrations present the fundamentals of residential landscape design.

This comprehensive resource guides readers through the entire process of designing a residential landscape, from initial contact with the client and discussion of a rough concept, to completing a finished master plan and selecting materials for implementing the design.
