The Garden DIY Water Features is a book that provides practical concepts and useful information on creating your own water feature(s). The natural qualities of water are soothing when placed in a garden. Whether you are an experienced gardener or a novice, you will find this book helpful. It has 20 stylish projects that cover all types of garden do-it-yourself water features that you can incorporate into your yard or patio.
The book is divided into six sections:
- Planning Your Water Feature – which includes how to design, estimates, types of pumps, suitable plants, and required tools;
- Pools and ponds;
- Streams and rills;
- Waterfalls and cascades;
- Fountains, springs and spouts; and
- Small water features, using innovative materials of a scale suitable for patios or smaller gardens.
Each of the projects gives you a list of materials and tools that you will require, detailed instructions, lots of photographs to inspire you and alternatives to encourage you to use your own creativity.
When we lived in Australia and had a water feature in our garden, we found this book to be invaluable – very informative and also inspiring. Just flipping through the book makes me miss having a garden.
