About the Book

Like the previous editions, Landscaping: Principles and Practices, sixth edition, is intended as an overview of a complex and growing industry. The text acquaints the reader with the three major areas of practice within the business -- design, installation, and management -- by organizing the chapters into three main sections. As an introductory text, Landscaping: Principles and Practices, sixth edition, is directed to traditional and nontraditional learners seeking to begin their training as landscape professionals. While much of the material covered is unquestionably horticultural, the text presents the profession first and foremost as a business. By following the text, readers progress from the basic principles of landscape design and graphics through methods of installation and maintenance to specific business practices such as recruiting, contract preparation and interpretation, estimating and pricing, and creating a safe workplace. - Preface.
