Site Engineering for Landscape Architects 6e, Strom

Site Engineering for Landscape Architects 6th Edition PDF Download Ebook. Steven Strom, Kurt Nathan and Jake Woland introduce the principles and techniques of basic site engineering for grading, drainage, earthwork, and road alignment. The book maintains the text's recognized quality, while revising its content to keep readers up to date with current technologies in the field of landscape architecture.

Introducing landform and the language of its design, the text explores the site engineering concepts essential to practicing landscape architecture today—from interpreting landform and contour lines, to designing horizontal and vertical road alignments, to construction sequencing, to designing and sizing stormwater management systems. Integrating design with the construction and implementation processes, the authors provide students with a progressive understanding of the subject matter.

This book expands its coverage of such current topics as sustainability, green roofs, bioengineering, and lightweight and structural soils. It also features new case studies, as well as inspiring graphics and color photos with real-world examples.

Perfect for use as a study guide for the most difficult section of the Landscape Architecture Registration Exam (LARE) or as a handy professional reference, this book gives readers a strong foundation for engaging in site development that is environmentally sensitive and intellectually stimulating.

This text 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.
