Description

Designs for gardens and landscapes need to contain accurate information to ensure that both the designer's intent is clear and to enable the highest quality constructions. This book contains the elements most often used when detailing surfaces, with key information on standards, guidance and construction that the practitioner must be aware of. Alongside the text are 2D and 3D images with suggestions of measurements, design considerations and materials.

Key topics covered in this book are: 

  • Vehicular paving 
  • Pedestrian paving and patios 
  • Steps and ramps
  • Margins, edges and kerbs
  • Drainage channels

To be used in conjunction with the book is an innovative online library of freely downloadable CAD (SketchUp format) details which link directly to those in the book. These details are available for the reader to edit, adapt and use in their own designs - and make the task of detailing for projects that little bit easier.
