This technical report, written by Barrett L. Kays, FASLA, teaches and demonstrates how to apply modern soil science techniques to create the best possible soils for landscape plants and the environment. The manual presents important soil concepts and how they should be applied to the design of soils for both small and large landscape architectural projects. The publication is intended as a resource for independent study and to improve landscape architects’ understanding of soils and how to effectively manage soils on their projects.
