It explores ways to change these practices to have a more positive effect, describing the principles of sustainable landscaping and proposing solutions to challenges that can arise. This book covers a wide range of landscape practices that fall under the broad subject of sustainability, providing detailed coverage of principles. Each topic is introduced by providing background information and terminology, followed with practical solutions that are being implemented by landscape professionals. Written for a general audience{u2014}from students of landscaping to homeowners and professionals in the landscaping industry{u2014}this book provides background information and practical solutions, offering sustainable approaches to the way landscapes are designed and managed
