Illustrated with international examples of completed projects, the book 'Landscape Architecture. An Introduction' provides an invaluable, one-stop resource for anyone considering studying or a career in this field. This book gives a comprehensive introduction to the nature and practice of landscape architecture, the professional skills required and the latest developments.

After discussing the history of the profession, the book explains the design process through principles such as hierarchy, human scale, unity, harmony, asymmetry, colour, form and texture. It looks at how design is represented through both drawing and modelling, and through digital techniques such as CAD and the use of GIS (Geographic Information Systems). This is followed by an examination of project management and landscape management techniques. Finally, the book  Landscape Architecture. An Introduction explores educational and employment opportunities and the future of the profession in the context of climate change and sustainability.
