Today, there is a growing demand for designed landscapes—from public
parks to backyards—to be not only beautiful and functional, but also
sustainable. Sustainability means more than just saving energy and
resources. It requires integrating the landscapes we design with
ecological systems. With Principles of Ecological Landscape Design, Travis Beck gives professionals and students the first book to translate the science of ecology into design practice. Beck
draws on real world cases where professionals have put ecological
principles to use in the built landscape.
