Author: Petschek, P.

Grading is one of the landscape architect's most important tools. This book deals with the basics - landform, scales, gradient, interpolation, spot elevations, contour lines and cut and fill calculations - as well as more specific topics such as landscape stabilization, stormwater management and grading on the construction site. It includes a number of projects and a set of practical exercises, and reviews the potential of digital site modelling.
