It surges down stairs, jets up from a spring, burbles from a stream--and water is the lifeblood of a garden that can transform it into a heavenly place. Capture the many exciting and sensual qualities of water, in features that range from formal fountains to wildlife ponds. Utterly awe-inspiring photographs exhibit dozens of magnificent examples, while descriptions first focus on natural elements of the water cycle-source, course, outlet, and destination--and then relate them to a man-made garden equivalent. So waterfalls become cascades, and a fountain emulates a spring. Construction blueprints illustrate how to put key ideas into practice, and there are lists of materials and equipment needed to construct every feature. Never has a book that's so practical been so inspirational! 192 pages (all in color), 9 3/4 x 11 1/4.
