Soil is an essential requirement for providing sufficient food and other primary resources, primarily via agriculture and silviculture, for the world’s population. It provides countless influences on the natural and man-made world, facilitating important natural systems and providing numerous ecosystems services. Understanding the complexities of soil and how to manage, protect and utilise it is vitally important to a wide range of professions, including the landscape profession.
Karl Jones and David Hackett have, on behalf of the LI Technical Committee and with contributions from Dr. Peter Shanahan, prepared a Technical Information Note that aims to improve landscape professionals’ knowledge and understanding of soil; and in doing so, to better facilitate their work and help to conserve a natural asset.
