Quick, reliable answers to your most common on-site questions

When you're in the field, you never know what you'll come across. The Graphic Standards Field Guide to Hardscape gives you fast access to the practical information you need when you're on-site and under pressure.

  • Things to look for when assessing existing conditions during preliminary design site visits or pre-construction meetings

  • Graphic Standards—quality details accompanied by real-world photographs of best construction practices and techniques

  • Illustrations that help you troubleshoot problems, along with on-the-spot solutions

  • A list of common construction mistakes and problems to avoid

  • Compact format that's easy to reference and carry along

The Graphic Standards Field Guide to Hardscape is the ideal companion for the on-the-go landscape architect, design professional, inspector, facilities manager or anyone that is involved with site construction.
