Landscape architecture has a pivotal role in ensuring environmental sustainability through design interventions. This book takes a broad look at strategies and completed projects to provide the reader with a strong understanding of the sustainability challenges being faced by designers today, and potential routes to addressing them.

The book covers essential concepts of landscape architecture and environmental sustainability, including:

- Ecology, multifunctional landscapes and sensitive intervention
- Remediation, cleansing and environmental infrastructure
- Social sustainability, design activism and healthy landscapes
- Food systems, productive landscapes and transportation
- Performance ratings, materials and life cycles

Through case studies from around the world and interviews with leading landscape architects and practitioners, this book invites discussion about possible future scenarios, relevant theories and project responses in landscape environmental design. With hundreds of color images throughout the book, and additional study material in the companion website, Joshua Zeunert provides an overview of the multidimensional qualities of landscape sustainability.

The book is the first of its kind, a text which pulls together the key drivers and contextual issues that underpin our thinking and approaches to sustainable landscape design. This is a must read for all students embarking on any form of environmental design, it will make them think more widely and in a more holistic way.David Booth, University of Gloucestershire, UKIt's a tour de force, very impressive and a clarion call. I am certain it will have lasting influence for landscape architecture students. It recalls for me the Jellicoes' Landscape of Man in the way that book captured a generation, and still does. -- Damien Mugavin, Professor Emeritus, Seoul National University
