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. Volume I, "Enclosures" covers walls (free-standing, screen and retaining), fences, gates, barriers and bollards. Each section begins with technical guidance notes on design and construction and then provides a list of points against which specifications can be checked. 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 British Standards, references, bibliography and a list of associations and institutions indicate where further guidance can be obtained. As a ready reference for landscape designers and as an indispensable time-saving tool, "Landscape Detailing" is an essential for the design office. It provides technical guidance notes and drawn to scale detail sheets for ease of understanding. Learn first hand from a well-established author in the field of Landscape Detailing. Save time with traceable drawn-to-scale detail sheets.

'Whilst this is another 'must' for a garden designer's bookshelf its success will be shown in years to come in better landscape detailing and in better built items of hard landscaping.' Vitis 'Excellent construction details and specification notes...useful for students of all levels.' J Cooper, Lecturer, Gloscat
