What is the work of the landscape designer in the topics? What should an architect think about when considering the surroundings to buildings? How can an individual develop a garden plot to make it more usable and pleasant? Are there any guidelines that the company executive or estate manager can follow when overseeing groundstaff in the setting out of roads, paths and planting on a site? What are the pitfalls to landscape design in the tropics? These questions are asked daily in the tropical world by people who have little knowledge about landscape design, but are suddenly confronted with a landscape problem. Written for those with English as a second language by an author who has taught and practised in the tropics for over 20 years, this book sets out to give guidance to the newcomer to tropical landscape design. It describes the work of the professional designer but is also sufficiently accessible to the amateur for whom professional consultation is not available. Reasons are given for all suggestions so that the designer may judge the appropriateness of any particular idea to the given situation.
