This document is a tool to help landscape architects use inclusive design considerations. It provides a technical overview of the national accessibility standards and guidelines. The information is a quick reference for landscape architecture professionals, educators, and students. Emphasis has been placed upon the information required to design accessible sites and facilities, including options for waivers. There are charts that illustrate the layered interrelationships for accessibility approval. A photo essay of “The Good, The Bad & The Ugly” in accessibility design contains many useful example images that emphasize correct and incorrect applications. The report is intended as a deskside resource. This publication should not be used as a final interpretation or determinant of the rules and regulations governing accessibility.
