9780470643556: The Sustainable Sites Handbook: A Complete Guide to the Principles, Strategies, and Best Practices for Sustainable Landscapes (Wiley Series in Sustainable Design)
Review:

"Calkins and other experts cover all of the primary elements of site design in detail, from site assessment to soils, vegetation, and water... landscape architects looking for a single resource to expand their technical knowledge base on sustainable site design would be hard pressed to find a better place to start." (Examiner.com, August 2012)

"The Sustainable Sites Handbook is indeed a major useful expansion of the LEEDS Green Building Rating System by bringing both rural open space and the social landscapes into determined sustainable design standards and appropriate maintenance criteria for use by all professional site planners. Soil mechanics and agricultural/horticultural soil systems are beautifully woven into this comprehensive evaluation of appropriate management of sites planning." (InSitu (International Institute of Site Planning), April 2012)

"The Book provides a thorough introduction to sustainable design, explaining sustainability and its integration into site design." (Garden Design Journal, July 2012)

From the Publisher:

Get the definitive resource guide for sustainable site design, construction, and management.

The Sustainable Sites Initiative (SITES) is transforming land design, development, and management practices across the United States with the first national rating system for sustainable landscapes. The Sustainable Sites Handbook features comprehensive and detailed information on principles, strategies, technologies, tools, and best practices for sustainable site design. Contributors to this book are some of the same experts that carefully shaped the SITES rating tool, ensuring thorough coverage of the broad range of topics related to sustainable site design.

The Sustainable Sites Handbook offers in-depth coverage of design, construction, and management for systems of hydrology, vegetation, soils, materials, and human health and well-being. Focusing primarily on environmental site design and ecosystem services, this wide-ranging guide also covers issues of social equity, economic feasibility, and stewardship, which are crucial to the success of any sustainable site.

Equally useful as a handbook for obtaining SITES credits or for the independent development of sustainable sites, The Sustainable Sites Handbook is an indispensible resource for practicing professionals in landscape architecture, landscape design, architecture, civil engineering, land planning, horticulture, ecology, environmental engineering, landscape contracting, and parks and recreation management.
