Recommended readings include
1. Thomas, G.S. 1999, Landscape Construction Notes, RAIA (now AIA), Melbourne
All the important information about landscape construction. This would be our textbook if it wasn't so expensive. Available through AIA.
2. Holden, R. & Liversedge, J. 2011, Construction for Landscape Architecture, Laurence King Publishing Ltd, London
Very relevant publication that combines written descriptions of materials and construction methods with details and photos. Plenty of information that is easy to understand.
1. Wyatt, K.J. & Hough, R. 2003, Principles of Structures (4th ed.) UNSW Press, Kensington
The standard textbook for building and engineering structures. Comprehensive with lots of maths, but easy to follow and with plenty of diagrams. The Appendix on Statics is particularly relevant.
