    This review is from: Complete Guide to Water Gardens: Ponds, Fountains, Waterfalls, Streams (Paperback)

    This is the best book I have seen on water gardens. It covers every step of the process from planning and construction through landscaping to stocking with fish and even maintenance.

    Many options are presented as far as size style and building methods for ponds, fountains, waterfalls, and streams. Fully illustrated with color photos and diagrams this is above all a great “how to do it” book.

    There is extensive coverage on choosing and caring for fish and other wildlife. A large encyclopedia of foliage including floating plants, marginals, ferns, shrubs and trees is also included. A photo, physical description, zones it will tolerate, & often some advice is given for each. Tons of landscaping enhancements are also suggested.

    There is history of water gardening and plenty of photos of beautiful finished gardens to give you ideas as well. I can’t emphasize too strongly through how important this hands-on book is for someone who want to create a water garden of their own.
