On the Ninth Day of Christmas…

On the Ninth Day of Christmas, my true love gave to me…Nine ladies dancing…

Since the slave trade ended in the 19th century, I cannot recommend buying dancing ladies for your friends and family.

However, we can inventory a site to determine which existing conditions can help or hinder our plans to make an outdoor space for the ladies to dance upon.

Today’s quiz will test you knowledge of site inventory skills and information sources. Let’s begin.

Quiz 9: Site Inventory Questions

1. Many natural existing site conditions provide opportunities or constraints farther along in the design process. Which of the following existing conditions should be identified when conducting a site inventory in California?


2. Flooding can seriously threaten human life and damage property. Since development in the 100 year flood plain is strictly regulated, where could a landscape architect look to determine if all or part of a site is located in the 100 year flood plain?


3. Landslides can occur on unstable slopes under certain conditions. Where can a landscape architect look to determine if a known landslide threat exists on or near a client's site?


4. Some surface hydrology items to look for on a site during a site inventory investigation include some of the following items. Select the correct answers that address surface hydrology.


5. What are some questions to ask about wildlife when initially conducting a site inventory for a client who wants to develop a mixed-use office and retail complex?
