Water Features for Small Gardens by Francesca Greenoak
Whether you prefer the inviting sound of water tumbling from a fountain or the calming effect of reflections in a still pool, water always enlivens and adds character to a garden. This work provides a wealth of inspirational ideas for incorporating water into the smallest of gardens, from simple and cost effective pebble pools and splash fountains, to more elaborate schemes for fish ponds and canals, rills and steps. The book also contains case histories of actual water gardens and advice is given on how to adapt these ideas to your own outdoor space. A final chapter on maintenance provides vital information on aeration, water purification and pump care to help you keep your small water garden attractive throughout the year.
