Product Description

From the Publisher

review extract
'At first glance this may look like a coffee table tome, but it is too good to be left with the cup rings and the digestive crumbs. Everything you need to know about installation is here, with plenty of clear diagrams accompanying the text that take you through the job from start to finish.'

Format: Paperback
This book is a must for those who want to build a water feature but have no previous experience in this area. It is well laid out, informative and inspirational. As a garden design student I have consulted many books on this subject but felt this was the one I should buy.

At a visit to a friend's house this morning, I was really amazed seeing the beautiful garden he had with small pools spread around with many different sorts of plants on the sides. When I asked him how he succeded in creating such a nice garden, he went inside and came back with a book titled "The Water Gardener" written by ANTHONY ARCHER-WILLS, JOHN BROOKES. I am back at home now and ordering for a copy of this particular book. Thanks for it.

An inspirational book, with lots of design and technical advice. A good read, and full of glossy pictures. Some of the technical details do seem to be direct copies of the drawings in the book - Landscape Detailing Volume 4: Water by Michael Littlewood... (so consistent in advice). Also has information regarding planting etc. Thoroughly recommended.

Excellent book. It was used and described "as new" which was untrue as the corner was dogeared. It also took ages to be delivered. However, there are very few good books on creating larger scale ponds and water features and this one, though rather old, is a good book.

This is a book I'd recommend as it has all the technical detail about making more complicated ponds as well as plenty about plants too.
