About this book

This book presents a horticultural overview of the main plant families of trees and shrubs from temperate regions that are cultivated in urban and rural landscape schemes. Most of the plants used come from a limited number of plant families and within these families, certain genera contribute very significantly. The largest chapter in the book describes 37 plant families according to their identification, functional use and management in landscape schemes. With this information readers will be able to assess the suitability of species and prepare planting designs for prevailing sites.

Contents

* Functional uses of vegetation in urban and rural areas; * Ornamental qualities of trees and shrubs; * Plant Identification - an introduction; * Plant Families; * Designing with trees and shrubs.
