Principles of Ecological Landscape Design (book)

Principles of Ecological Landscape Design

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.
