Reseña del editor:

Maintaining and enhancing the richness of public landscape is both a challenge and an opportunity for contemporary landscape professionals, especially at a time of declining resources. This book has been written for use by students and practitioners of the wide range of disciplines involved in some way in the landscape. Accordingly, some of the content is descriptive and addresses the means by which various aspects of landscape management can be carried out most effectively. This is supplemented by a more philosophical discussion on why certain courses of action are or are not undertaken. Whilst the book is concerned primarily with landscape management, rather than design, wherever possible management is set in a context of consideration for the aesthetic values of the urban landscape. Throughout the book the author reinforces his view that the management of the urban landscape can only be carried out satisfactorily through an integrated approach amongst the key disciplines involved. It is necessary that these disciplines see one another not as threats but as equal partners with complementary skills and knowledge. The book is divided into four main areas dealing with: the underlying principles of landscape management; the establishment and management of urban vegetation, including equipment; the management of trees, woody plants and turf, as well as colour in the landscape and roof gardens; and the management of landscape systems, including natural, semi-natural, cultural heritage, coastal, road corridor and children's play landscapes.
