Whether you dream of a tranquil reflecting pond, a formal arrangement of pools and sculpted fountains, or a pond to encourage wildlife to visit, you can have a water feature despite limitations of space. Even the terrace garden of an urban apartment can be enhanced with a container transformed to accommodate a Water plant or cherished goldfish! Filled with inspiring full-color photographs and practical instruction, this helpful volume includes you need to know. Begin by determining what kind of water feature suits your tastes, available space, and other design considerations and then learn general methods of construction, installation, and maintenance. Fourteen step-by-step projects demonstrate how to create formal and informal pools, moving and still water, stone and pebble features, wall fountains and water spouts, splash fountains, and container features. Planting ideas and a detailed catalog of plants appropriate for a water garden will help you cultivate the garden of your dreams.
