Plants are an integral part of modern interior design and INTERIOR PLANTSCAPING PRINCIPLES AND PRACTICES, 1st Edition helps readers use them to enhance any commercial or residential space. Organized into four sections, the book addresses plant species, design fundamentals, plant science, and business considerations, while demonstrating the many professional and creative opportunities plantscaping offers. Digging deeply into horticulture, INTERIOR PLANTSCAPING PRINCIPLES AND PRACTICES, 1st Edition discusses plant physiology, light, water, soil environment, pests, and diseases, and takes the mystery of out of plant selection, installation, and maintenance. Like no other book, INTERIOR PLANTSCAPING PRINCIPLES AND PRACTICES, 1st Edition illustrates how plantscaping makes interior spaces more livable by adding beauty and making environments healthier, both physically and psychologically, through people and plant interaction.
"This Textbook will fill a need in an area that will become more important in years to come as employers realize the benefit and effect of a well designed interior plantscape for its employees."
