Landscape Design and Nursery Operation for Energy Conservation.
Bell, Richard C.; Glazener, Dennis
Landforms, vegetation, water bodies, climate and solar radiation can be analyzed and used to design an energy-conserving landscape and horticulture operation. Accordingly, this course instructor's manual covers the use of the elements of the environment to make landscaping and nursery design and operation more energy-efficient. Five sections comprise the guide: (1) background material on site analysis, which is the course's central focus; (2) information about designing energy-conserving landscapes; (3) a section on greenhouse orientation and design for solar energy use; (4) guidelines for conserving energy in nursery design and operation; and (5) a set of site maps and suggested ways to use them within a classroom to apply principles covered in previous portions of the manual. The guide's five sections can be used to teach separate courses on landscaping, greenhouses, and nurseries. (Author/WB)
