Tender documents for landscape development are becoming increasingly sophisticated and will increasingly demand precise quality control and performance specifications.
The book, “Soils for Landscape Development: Selection, specification and validation” provides a clear practical template for specifying landscape soils based on scientific criteria. The 13 example soil specifications outline a universally applicable method using objective and measurable criteria to ensure quality and fit-for-purpose soils.
It also provides clear guidance and essential information to manufacturers on how to meet the quality objectives of the tender documents.
A strong emphasis in all chapters is placed on reducing environmental impacts by using recycled products including improvement of site soils using organics, the role of AS 4454 certified organics, use of mulches, reconstruction of soil profiles and the role of recycled organics.
The book links the landscape designer with the supplier of soils and organic amendments.
Copies of the book will be available for purchase at the Book Launch.
