4.0 out of 5 stars Landscape Designer March 4 2001
By A Customer
This book is used as a text book at several univerities and Community colleges. It is a basic text that alows a student to learn to draw graphics and symbols. The excersize in the back of the book are very helpful when first learning to draft graphics. It does not address computer graphics. If you want to produce those kinds of plans it is best to take a course in computer graphics. When first learning to draw graphics one has to start somewhere. This book does a great job!

Loved this book. I am a self-taught landscape designer. This book brings home to me one of the reasons I am self-taught. I am one of those people that learn better when left alone with a good instruction manual. This is one of those books that gets right to the point and covers just about everything. It's packed with page after page of graphics, and just enough text to explain what is not obvious. And for 15.95, such a deal!

3.0 out of 5 stars Landscape architects 2000 Dec 18 1999
Although this book does provide endless ideas and solutions for graphic dilemas, the graphics shown are WAY out of date. When giving a presentation, you want your work to look classy and as professional as possible. Cartoonish figures, trees, and other landscape features don't cut it in today's market. These graphics are useful for personal sketches only, and nothing more.

5.0 out of 5 stars An Excellent Guide April 23 2000
By A Customer
This is the best book I've found about landscape graphics. It's detailed and comprehensive. I particularly like its extensive gallery of trees, shrubs and other elements (which range from quick and simple outlines to convincingly realistic 'value drawings'). Landscape architecture aside, this is the best instruction book I've found about rendering trees and shrubs.

3.0 out of 5 stars useful but dated... May 8 2000
By A Customer
this book is great for reference if you need basic graphics to develop into your own, the graphics file at the end is pretty comphrehensive and easy to flip to for quick ideas. however, the graphics are extremely dated, drawn with conventions that would look strange in today's landscape drawings.
