Along with vegetation, grading counts as one of the most important design tools for landscape architects. Landscape architects must be able to design using contour lines, develop alternatives, and examine these in respect to design, ecology, economy, and technology. This requires knowledge of terrain modeling. Peter Petschek's Grading defines basics, such as terrain, slope, elevation points, contour lines, and earth mass calculation, and introduces topics including ground stabilization, stormwater management, and terrain modeling on the construction site. This edition provides comprehensive insight into the BIM construction workflow in Landscape Architecture including "landscapingSMART" with digital terrain modeling (DTM) and 3D machien control systems. A case study by the interenationally renowned landscape architecture firm, Ramboll Studio Dreiseitl (RSD), is included to better understand this workflow in one of their BIM projects. The book includes the basics of project planning for the terrain modeling of roads and parking lots, as well as numerous international case studies on grading, a glossary and a section of exercises. Taken as a whole, it gives you the theroretical foundations of grading and allows you to practice these acquired skills.
