Landscape Construction: Procedures, Techniques, and Design

Floyd Giles

This book was written to improve the home landscape. It is not a collection of plans, but a book that explains how and why to design and build. It points out pitfalls and takes the reader through proper procedures, methods, and designs. Professor Giles is a practical man who has written a book that reflects his background as a landscape contractor who used this experience to orient his book to both the professional and the homeowner.

This edition expands, with over 600 pictures, includes much more extensive drainage work, and updates with many new products and materials, thus rounding off this book to cover the subject from design to construction in a multitude of subjects.
