Publisher Comments:

Helen Nash, the bestselling author of Complete Guide to Water Garden Plants and The Pond Doctor, and the world's best-known authority on water gardening, has a few brilliant plans for adding a water feature to every garden.

Whether the garden is formal or family-friendly, whether it consists of small containers or expansive outdoor rooms with bridges and entries, Helen Nash has the perfect water feature to suit the space and turn it into a beautiful sanctuary. Dazzling color photos show off 18 remarkable and inspirational gardens, all in a breathtaking range of styles. Have only a small urban lot? A koi pond and a deck will fit. Do small children need a place to play? Construct a child-safe pebble pond. Longing for something lush? Grow a "tropical rainforest" in the backyard, with waterfalls and pools, and richly colorful vegetation. Or choose from a cottage garden; bird, butterfly and wildlife garden; Japanese garden; a patio courtyard complete with a pond and potted plants; and even a wheelchair-accessible design. Each one is like a little bit of paradise in your home.

Synopsis:

Trust the author of The Pond Doctor when she tells you that, whatever your garden style, there is a water feature that's right for you. Lush color photographs, 18 garden types, and instruction from the world's best-known water gardening author will help you create the ideal backyard haven. Have small children? Add a child-safe pebble pond. No room? Try a mini water garden in a container. Want your shady garden to feel like a woodland paradise? Add a waterfall. Attract wildlife, raise fish, overcome climatic challenges, and more.
