Water has featured prominently in garden designs for thousands of years, hardly surprisingly - it can captivate the senses, creating visually stimulating light and movement and soothing, splashing, and bubbling sounds. In its many forms, water can be used as the focus of new gardens or to add an exciting fresh dimension to an existing one.
Encompassing every aspect of water in the garden, this beautiful - but also eminently practical - book is full of ideas for incorporating water into a garden design. Ponds, watercourses, waterfalls, fountains, and small water features - from pebble fountains to troughs - are illustrated with inspiring photographs, and their construction is explained in detailed text and, where applicable, step-by-step diagrams. There is also a section devoted to bridging water, using stepping-stones, timber decking, and islands, as well as a variety of bridges.
