Splash!: Rock and Water Design in Gardens by Peter Robinson
Water is a welcome element in any garden, having the power to soothe or excite. Whether you want a small feature or a series of waterfalls this practical and extensive guide provides a host of ideas for using water in your garden. Step-by-step photographic sequences and cross-sectional artworks show how to build a range of features, including a rock-edged pool, a wildlife pool and free-standing features such as a cobble fountain or a brimming urn. Useful sections look at buying and introducing fish to a pond, while a helpful chapter on care and maintenance explains how to keep rock and water gardens in top condition.
