Simple Fountains for Indoors & Outdoors: 20 Step-By-Step Projects Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Nothing smoothes the furrowed brow like the soft lap of wavelets on a lakeshore, the rythym of surf on a barrier island, or the silvery tinkle of a stream falling through the spring forest. At home-in the house or in the garden-the gentle, melodic patter of water spilling from a fountain offers the same tranquility.

Dorcas Adkins, a fountain designer and manufacturer, brings this soothing relaxation to your home using readily available materials, simple crafting techniques, and her own step-by-step instructions. She explains everything you need to know about fountain materials, supplies, and assembly, whether you choose to work with wood, stone, ceramic, or other materials and whether or not you have any building experience.

Throughout Simple Fountains for Indoors & Outdoors, Adkins's can-do attitude will give you the confidence to experiment and have fun: Relax, she urges, and let your creative talents take over.

Synopsis:

Bring home the soothing sounds of water

The endless murmur and flow of a bubbling fountain adds a touch of elegance to both homes and gardens. Now, fountain designer and manufacturer Dorcas Adkins reveals her trade secrets for making 20 creative fountains-from a small, tabletop fountain put together without a single tool to a dramatic outdoor spouting wall fountain or a full-sized waterfall-and at far less cost than for those found in upscale catalogs. Step by step, Simple Fountains for Indoors and Outdoors explains everything you need to know.

Projects include:

--Tabletop fountains made from shells and stones

--Lava rock bonsai garden fountain

--Cedar water garden with bamboo flute

--Birdshower fountain

--Small mosaic fountain

--Concrete and ceramic spouting wall fountains

--Shishi Odoshi(or Japanese Deer-Scare Fountain)

Synopsis:

Everything readers need to know to create elegant, soothing water fountains. Easy-to-follow instructions explain choosing and installing pumps and constructing fountains.
