"This book gives practical recommendations for lighting and watering systems, temperature levels and other environimental requirements, such as growing media and structural support, as well as advice on long-term maintenance. Guidance on selecting and specifying plants is followed by an extensive illustrated plant index showing species' form, scale and textural effect, amongst other useful information. The many illustrations show how planting schemes integrate with overall design concepts. The wealth of practical help in this book - including analyses of planting successes and failures - makes this a useful guide which will help design professionals and facilities managers complete planting schemes effectively, avoiding expensive mistakes."--BOOK JACKET.
