    Book on park design and plant use?

    Does anyone have any suggestions on an introductory book regarding park, plaza, or open space designing? Technical would be best. One with information of types and appropriate use of plant materials would be beneficial as well.

    Thanks

    Everyone is going to recommend different plant choices (very subjective).

    Anatomy of a Park by Rutledge
    Handbook of Landscape Architectural Construction by Nelischer
    Simplified Site Engineering by Parker
    Landscape with Native Trees: The Northeast, Midwest, Midsouth, and Southeast Edition by Sternberg
    Landscape Architectural Graphics Standards by Wiley
    Urban Parks and Open Space by ULI
    Manual of Woody Landscape Plants by Dirr
    Time-Saver Standards for Landscape Architecture by Harris

    Ask your professors, that's what you are paying them for
