The fully updated edition of the leading fundamentals book on site design and engineering
Site Engineering for Landscape Architects, Fourth Edition continues a long tradition as the leading, comprehensive introduction to site engineering. This revised edition is fully updated to address emerging theories, applications, the increasing use of CAD and CAD-related technologies, and much more.
From interpreting landform and contour lines to designing horizontal and vertical road alignments, from construction sequencing to designing storm water management systems, this Fourth Edition offers an integrated presentation of site engineering concepts essential to practicing landscape architecture today. Complete with new case studies and new material on soils and earthwork, erosion control, and site layout and horizontal control, it is also a perfect preparation guide for the most challenging section of the Landscape Architecture Registration Exam (LARE).
In addition to helpful sample problems, calculations, and case studies, this updated Fourth Edition features a companion Web site (available at wiley.com/go/siteengineering) with expanded case studies and links to a variety of regulatory, site engineering, and software resources.
Site Engineering for Landscape Architects, Fourth Edition makes it easier than ever for students and professionals to quickly master the principles and practices involved in today's environmentally sound site engineering.
