Anne Simon Moffat & Mare Schiler. Landscape Design That Saves Energy.
First Edition 1981. William Morrow & Co, INC. New York, New York. Paperback in Good condition.
Nearly forties years ago, landscaping design to save energy needed a rationale. This book outlines the needs for every climate zone in the United States from native plant species and building materials to solar angles and climatic forces to help conserve energy. This is a manual that is easy to read and includes simple drawings and diagrams. I am surprised that this type of home design is not yet mandatory. A book that will delight any sustainability conscious homeowner. This book makes a terrific gift.
