About this book

Michael Littlewood's "Landscape Detailing" is now well established as a valuable source of reference for architects, landscape architects, other professionals and students designing external works. For this third edition, it has been split into three volumes to give a greater depth of coverage than ever before. Volume 3 covers pergolas, arbours, arches, gazebos, summer houses, sheds, shelters, decks, footbridges, furniture and roofs. Each section begins with technical guidance notes on design and construction. This is followed by a set of drawn-to-scale detail sheets. These details can be traced for direct incorporation into the set of contract drawings. A list of relevant references, bibliography and a list of association and institutions indicate where further guidance can be obtained. A ready reference for landscape designers and an indispensable time-saving tool, "Landscape Detailing" is an essential for the design office. Details can be traced for direct incorporation into a contract drawing. It saves time and effort. It lists British Standards, manufacturers, associations and institutions.
