Interior Landscape Dictionary
Practically all books written on interior landscape address the needs of home gardeners or the more detailed needs of business owners and researchers. Technicians, trainees, and advanced personnel alike--those who must maintain large interior installations on a commercial level--have not had ready access to information often critical to performing their job successfully. Finally, here is a dictionary specifically compiled for the interior landscape professional. It fills the gap in the literature by covering all terms that apply to interior landscaping. Definitions of more than 1,000 interior landscape terms are listed in alphabetical order for easy access. Each definition is brief but thorough to provide the right depth needed by the working professional. Although terms are described at a level that requires no background in the science of horticulture, the Interior Landscape Dictionary also provides technical terminology for those who require it. Nearly 130 illustrations--including 70 photographs--make it easy to identify specific plants and treatment for various plant diseases and pests. Detailed appendices cover both Latin and common plant nomenclature, pronunciation of Latin names, and lists of additional reading materials for reference. Unlike other botanical dictionaries that have too few illustrations and too many complex definitions, the Interior Landscape Dictionary has the right blend of information and format for the daily needs of interior landscapers. It is a valuable reference source for professionals and trainees in the fields of landscape architecture and management, interior design, horticulture, architecture, and plant science.
