Environmental horticulture - also referred to as landscape horticulture and amenity horticulture - is the umbrella term for the horticulture that we encounter in our daily lives. This includes parks, botanic gardens, sports facilities, landscape gardens, roundabouts, cemeteries, and shopping centres - any public space which has grass, planting and trees. A complete and comprehensive guide to an area most of us take for granted, Environmental Horticulture: * Comments and critiques contemporary thinking on the subject * Explores the role, value and application of horticulture in different landscapes * Reviews the importance and impact of horticulture on the wider environment * Covers practical management advice for categories of environmental horticulture such as turf grass, bedding plants, trees, grasslands and green roofs A vital resource for undergraduate and postgraduate students, this book is also a valuable addition to academic departments with an interest in green space management and wider environmental issues.
