520    While landscaping has the potential to be part of the 
       solution to certain environmental problems, the quest for 
       beauty can also produce effects that are harmful to the 
       environment. Sustainable Landscaping: Principles and 
       Practicesexamines landscape practices that adversely 
       affect the environment, which occur in the process of 
       constructing, implementing, and managing residential and

       practices to have a more positive effect, describing the 
       principles of sustainable landscaping and proposing 
       solutions to challenges that can arise. This book covers a
       wide range of landscape practices that fall under the 
       broad subject of sustainability, providing detailed 
       coverage of principles including the following: Conducting
       sustainability audits Using plants to maximize their 
       benefits Regulating solar heat gain and loss with seasonal
       climate changes Directing wind using plants to minimize 
       heat loss in winter and maintain cooling breezes in summer
       Addressing water quantity and quality Managing storm water
       Understanding and improving soil health Minimizing the 
       impact of pesticides and herbicides Conserving energy and 
       reducing air pollution Managing resources and reducing
