Gilly Love


This title shows you how to create a wealth of water features, with advice on incorporating them stylishly into the garden. It features over 300 glorious photographs that show ideas, examples, and how to achieve the practical results you want. Step-by-step projects from leading water garden designers include a Mosaic Pond, a Bird-bath Fountain and a Container Garden. It includes fascinating case studies of real-life water gardens to adapt and use, such as an Urban Wildlife Pond, a Silver Water Sculpture, and a Modern Cascade. A useful directory of key plants provides information on different varieties and cultivation. This lavishly illustrated book celebrates water gardening in all its forms. The first section shows how water can be used, and how to build it sympathetically into a design. The Reservoir section looks at pools, ponds, canals, rills, and wet gardens and the Outlet chapter considers streams, waterfalls, cascades, fountains, jets, spouts, and wall-mounted features. The chapter on Elements looks at associated designs, such as bridges, islands and stepping stones. Both include case studies with cross-section diagrams and eight projects. The final section is a directory of water and bog plants, and answers all your technical water garden questions. This is a perfect reference for every gardener wanting to create stylish water features.
