Academic Level: Graduate

The last quarter of the 20th century witnessed a burgeoning of interest in ecological or naturally inspired use of vegetation in the designed landscape. A strong aesthetic element has been added to what was formerly a movement aimed at creating nature-like landscapes.
This text advances a fusion of scientific and ecological planting design philosophy that can address the need for more sustainable designed landscapes. It is a major statement on the design, implementation and management of ecologically inspired landscape vegetation. With contributions from people at the forefront of developments in this field, in both Europe and North America, it provides a valuable synthesis of contemporary thinking.
