My 7250 Landscaping Designs Review

Highly Recommended

Of all books related to the topic, I love reading this e-book because of its well-planned flow of content. Even a beginner like me can easily gain huge amount of knowledge in a short period.

All the modules inside this ebook are very detailed and explanatory, there is nothing as comprehensive as this guide.

47 Landscaping on industrial and reclaimed land

In the context of overall landscaping, here we will concentrate on what is normally recognized as soft landscaping, i.e. that area which includes waterbodies and growing plants. The primary problems that have to be solved in any scheme for creating a new growing, living landscape out of a reclaimed land, are As indicated earlier, heavy contamination can be buried, sealed or removed. Burying of the material should be well below the root growth zone, and this is normally taken as 3.0 m below the final ground-surface level. Sealing for heavy contamination to prevent vertical or lateral leaching through groundwater flow can be with compacted clay or proprietary plastic membranes. Removal from site of the contaminants is normally only contemplated in a landscaped scheme where the material, even at depth, could be a hazard to public health directly or phytotoxic to plant life. As a general rule, young, immature plants should be chosen for any landscape-planting scheme on reclaimed,...

3Interdisciplinary Team IDT and Project Manager PM

WSDOT personnel are assigned when available and may be supplemented by consultants, personnel from other state or local agencies, and disciplines from within the community. Assistant Secretaries, the State Project Development Engineer, the IDT, community groups, and planning agencies may suggest the assignment of additional disciplines. IDT members and support disciplines have expertise in such areas as acoustics, air quality, archaeology, architecture, biology, botany, communications, economics, geology, hydrology, landscape architecture, meteorology, sanitary engineering, sociology, structural engineering, transportation planning, urban planning, and water quality.

Construction Nonpoint Source Pollution

Erosion of soil at construction sites will not only cause water quality problems offsite, but may be regarded as the loss of a valuable natural resource. Homebuyers expect a landscaped yard, and lost topsoil is often costly for the contractor to replace. Builders of houses, highways, and other construction view soil erosion as a process that must be controlled in order to maximize economic return. Under the USEPA's 1999 storm water management regulations, construction activities that disturb one acre or more are required to have NPDES storm water permits (see discussion of Urban Nonpoint Source Pollution). The final step in controlling nonpoint pollution from construction sites is to reveg-etate the site. This should be done as quickly as possible, and may involve several steps if the site is to be landscaped. Professional landscaping often requires bringing in additional topsoil, grading the landscaped area, as well as seeding and planting, fertilizing, and mulching. If the...

106003 Park And Ride Lots

Present and future needs are the main considerations in determining the location of a park and ride lot. Public input is a valuable tool. The demand for and the size of a park and ride lot is dependent on a number of factors. Many ofthese factors vary with the state ofthe economy, energy availability and cost, perceived congestion, and public attitude, and are somewhat difficult to predict. Therefore, consider sizing the facility to allow for a conservative first-stage construction with expansion possibilities. As a rule ofthumb, one acre can accommodate approximately 90 vehicles in a park and ride lot. This allows about 40 percent ofthe area for borders, landscaping, passenger amenities, bus facilities for larger lots, and future expansion. The minimum width of a sidewalk adjacent to a loading zone should be 12 feet or the adjacent sidewalk width plus 7 feet, whichever is greater. Pedestrian barriers should be provided where unusual hazards or unreasonable interference with vehicular...

Stability And Product Quality

The major compost uses include large-scale landscaping (golf courses, public works projects, highway median strips), local nurseries, industries (as potting material), greenhouses, urban gardeners, land reclamation projects (strip mines), and landfill (daily and final cover).

Evaluation of TES Application Opportunities

Counterbalancing the prospective benefits of potentially reduced distribution system capital and operating costs are capital costs associated with added storage system pumping, water treatment and filtering costs, and maintenance requirements. The opportunity cost of allocating space for storage and the cost of any additional landscaping or structural modifications should also be considered. Ice storage systems are fairly large cold water systems are extremely large. In the case of large concrete water storage systems, consideration should be given to the potential for leaks. The use of at least two partitions should be considered to allow for simultaneous operation and repair.

Product Reformulation

Dow Chemical Company achieved waste reduction through changes in product packaging. A wettable powder insecticide, widely used in landscape maintenance and horticulture, was originally sold in 2-lb metal cans. The cans had to be decontaminated before disposal, creating a hazardous waste. Dow now packages the product in 4-oz water-soluble packages which dissolve when the product is mixed with water for use (U.S. Congress 1986).

71010 Redirectional Land Forms

Redirectional land forms are constructed of readily available materials that will provide support for the traversing vehicle without special compaction. Aesthetic compatibility is a significant consideration in selecting the earth berm surface material. Contact the region's Landscape Architecture Office for additional guidance on the surface material and vegetation requirements for redirectional land forms.

411 Process Hazard Control Planning

For large developments it is usual to seek planning permission in two stages 'outline' permission and then 'detail' permission. This allows the developer to ascertain that it has permission before incurring costs of development. Outline planning permission is full planning permission. Permission is granted subject to 'reserved matters', which cover such aspects as building design, plant design, landscaping and access. These are the only matters which the LPA is subsequently entitled to consider.

It includes the property line, easements, right-of-ways, utility corridors, buildings, wells, control structures, roads, drainage ways, neighboring properties, and land use. The site preparation map shows fill and stockpile areas and site facilities. The landfill should be designed so that the excavated material is used quickly as cover. Development plans show the landfill base and top elevations and slopes. Cross sections at various places...

Horizontal Loops

These systems are common in residential applications but are not frequently applied to large-tonnage commercial applications because of the significant land area required for adequate heat transfer. The horizontal-loop systems can be buried beneath lawns, landscaping, and parking lots. Horizontal systems tend to be more popular where there is ample land area with a high water table.

Sewage Systems

Small-system pumping stations (Figures 1 and 2) are frequently built underground and may be factory-built. For larger stations, superstructures should be in keeping with surrounding development. It has been said that people smell with their eyes and their ideas as well as their noses, and for this reason aboveground structures should be attractive, with landscaped grounds, to overcome the popular prejudices against sewage works. Stations can be and have been designed and constructed in residential areas where the neighbors apparently are not aware that the stations are not homes.
