Landscape Construction, 3rd edition, will help your students understand the process of construction and implementation of a multitude of exterior hardscape construction projects. This book begins with the preparation for construction and follows through to the installation of the final elements of the landscape project. Your students will appreciate the detailed discussions about site preparation, grading and drainage, utilities and irrigation, retaining wall construction, paving, exterior carpentry and fencing and free-standing walls. Such amenities as pools, ponds, and edging are also discussed in detail. All instructions are well supported by photos and illustrations. Each section contains thorough installation information for most of the contemporary materials used in today’s landscapes. David Sauter has provided your students with expert perspective on materials and techniques, as well as easy-to-follow instructions.
