Overview

Here's how to transform an ordinary backyard garden into true showpiece. This beautiful, color-filled, idea-packed book will energize creative imaginations with its 15 garden design projects, all having water features. Whether designed around a pond, a brook, a small pool, or a simple waterspout, a garden becomes a place of magic when water is one of its design elements. Each of this book's projects is illustrated with a dozen or more high-detail pictures showing plant, accessory, and landscape particulars. These details are brought together in a photo of the entire garden, complemented with a full-color diagrammatic drawing that is keyed to each of the individually illustrated details. Options and variations on each theme show gardeners how to customize the book's designs to suit their own climate, soil, and garden space. Additional features include:

  • A 14-page comprehensive plant directory
  • A 10-page directory of fish to populate the pond or other water source
  • A detailed chapter on care and maintenance of both pond and garden
More than 200 full-color illustrations and clear, step-by-step instructions cover every aspect of water garden planning and construction.
