Summary

Now in its Sixth Edition, Site Engineering for Landscape Architects has long been the leading textbook used in site engineering, planning, and construction courses. It presents the complex principles and techniques of site grading, drainage, earthwork, and road alignment in a way that is easy for students to understand. The new edition features completely revised information on stormwater management and green infrastructure, as well as many new and updated case studies. New illustrations throughout create a unified look that aligns with the digital, vector-based graphics used in landscape architecture practices today.
