Summary

Summary

Water forms the soul of a garden. A quiet pond, a babbling brook, or a dramatic pool can make a garden unique. To achieve such beauty, however, requires careful planning and design. Using over 150 brilliant color photographs, this splendid and inspiring book presents the variety of possibilities for using water in the garden. The informative and enjoyable text provides helpful planning details, including advice on waterproofing, the shore formation, attractive plantings, even fish. Planning and building any kind of water garden is not only fun, it greatly enriches the joy that is found in one's own backyard garden.
