For centuries, water has been a source of inspiration and delight to people of all cultures, making it a common feature of garden design world-wide. The tranquility of water has the power to soothe the senses, whilst moving water can add an exciting new dimension to a garden. Ponds, pools and streams can transform the most ordinary gardens and patios, whatever the size and style. This guide shows readers how to enhance their gardens by giving them the skills and knowledge necessary to plan, construct and maintain the ideal pond, whether it is an informal wildlife pond with wild planting or a formal raised pond with a fountain and decorative edging. With the weekend gardener in mind, each of the 10 step-by-step projects included should be easy to construct and require little DIY expertise. An introductory chapter covers essential information on tools, materials and techniques, including choosing the right liner, excavating the area and fitting pumps and filters, as well as maintaining the pond, while the projects themselves give inspiration and guidance on creating a range of garden ponds.
