Water gardens never go out of favour, but many people now want something a little different - not a formal pond with paved edges, but a natural-looking water garden which blends into the landscape or creates an atmosphere of informality, attracting wildlife and providing a feeling of countryside relaxation. This book is both practical and inspirational. Choosing a site, planning, construction and planting are all covered in detail. Ponds, streams and waterfalls are all included and case histories are documented to show what can be achieved even in a flat and uninspiring plot.
Designing the stream garden; constructing the pool and stream; planting the stream garden; case studies - a suburban garden and Sheffield Park; plant directory; the stream garden year.
