“Landscape Planning. . . could well be described as ‘How to Design with Nature.’” ––Ian McHarg, from the Foreword

 “In North America, there are few places where we have been able to achieve a lasting balance among land use activities, facilities, and environment. . . Planning. . . has been transformed into a bureaucratic process made up of inventories, checklists, and permits, which asks for little understanding of the landscape’s true character.

 The route to finding the true character of the landscape lies in understanding the way land functions, changes, and interacts with the life it supports. . . Landscape planning must do more than respond to mere shapes and features but must also respond to the processes themselves.”––William Marsh, from the introduction to Chapter 3

 This authoritative text provides comprehensive coverage of the key methods and techniques involved in landscape planning. The Fourth Edition is extensively updated and revised to incorporate the rapid expansions taking place in this field. By focusing on landscape processes, systems, forms, and analysis, Marsh’s book has received much praise and is an excellent complement to Ian McHarg’s Design with Nature (Wiley, 1995).


Increasingly landscape planning requires an understanding of how the landscape functions. Marsh’s book provides a unique integration of landscape architecture, forestry, ecology, and geography.

This Fourth Edition incorporates the rapid expansions taking place in the field. It addresses several topics of concern in both public and private sectors such as flooding wetlands, species conservation, and groundwater. Readers will also discover how physical geography, planning, and landscape architecture relate to environmental problems and issues.

* An overview of environmental topics as applied to development, land use, and environmental problems of the landscape

* Focuses on landscape processes, systems, forms, and analysis

* Places greater emphasis on urban environments and site-scale problems

* Arms the reader with a collection of best management practices, which can be applied in the field

* Presents updated case studies that examine planning and design problems
