Landscape Construction Volume 1 deals with elements of landscape construction which are required to provide enclosure, privacy, demarcation of land, shelter and security. The elements discussed include free-standing brick and stone walls, fences, gates and railings. Fittings and finishes are also covered. Each section describes the materials, construction and constraints relevant to the subject and a large number of detailed figures and photographs supplement the text and help to illustrate the more important aspects. There is also a section on preservation treatment and painting. The current British Standard references are included.
