I’m a Landscape Architect. I work in AutoCAD all day designing site plan and landscape plan layouts for municpal approvals and then construction.
The junior partner in my office, who I report to, is a Professional Planner. He has a certificate in Landscape Design (not the same as my degree…not at all)
He often does the ‘simple’ landscape plans when I’m busy, which is fine, but he refuses to draw trees to scale. He doesn’t seem to get it. He’ll comment ‘oh i know how you like drawing plants to scale….’ but he never does it.
If you’re telling a contractor to plant trees that will eventually be 15m (50ft) wide only 10m (25ft) apart then it’s not going to work! That’s not enough space for them to grow properly. He draws all trees at the same size.
DRIVES ME NUTS! Apparently before I came here this was common practice. Usually the principle LA would draw the plan and indicate the centre of the tree so the spacing would be fine – just the circles would be gone. Now that he’s not doing them much anymore, mister junior does and it’s WRONG and it BUGS ME…GRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRR
that’s my rant of the day.
