Water Gardens


by Yvonne Rees and Neil Sutherland. Water gardens, once a rarity, are available to any energetic do-it-yourselfer. Materials can be obtained at most garden centers or around the house. We like this book because its 16 projects are on the simpler end of the water feature scale. Most are in containers - water gardens, bog gardens and fountains. Others involve adding novelty water features or a waterfall to the garden. The book also has much other useful information for water gardeners. It covers the basics such as styles, liners, edgings, and installing water pumps, filters, and fountains. It also has an extensive plant section beginning with waterlilies, other floaters, and oxygenators and spreading out to the marginal moisture loving plants that help fit the water garden in the landscape. Numerous color photos adorn each page. Hardcover 140pp pub at $22.95
