Description
Many ecology-based field techniques run counter to traditional practice and are unfamiliar to even highly experienced contractors. Consequently, it is crucial for designers to not only understand these techniques, but provide precise specifications for their execution. Important field techniques such as phased planting, timed mowing, selective height mowing, sunlight manipulation, assisted seed dispersal, and others will be described in detail. We will also discuss organizational formats for creating written specifications that distinguish between short-term and long-term management procedures, and balance the need for both detail and usability.
