  • gives key information in each area and lists where to go for more detailed guidance
  • covers important recent changes in planning requirements
  • explores the theoretical underpinning to conservation/preservation work

This volume on gardens is the fifth in a series on historic building conservation that combines conservation philosophy in the built environment with knowledge of traditional materials and structural and constructional conservation techniques and technology:

  • Understanding Historic Building Conservation
  • Materials & Skills in Historic Building Conservation
  • Structures & Construction in Historic Building Conservation
  • Interior Finishes & Fittings for Historic Building Conservation
  • Gardens & Landscapes in Historic Building Conservation

While substantial publications exist on each of the subject areas, few individuals and practices have ready access to all of these or the time to read them in detail. The aim of the series is to introduce each aspect of conservation and to provide concise, basic and up-to-date knowledge, sufficient for the professional practitioner as well as for commissioning client bodies, managers and advisors to appreciate the subject better and to know where to seek further help.
