Look Inside
Whether it’s a swimming pool or a tiny pond, water features lend a unique atmosphere.
Water excites the senses. It sparkles in the eyes, splashes in the ears, cools the skin and even seems to bring freshness to the air we breathe. Garden pools can highlight the beauty of the ever-changing nature of water by absorbing and reflecting on its surface the movement of the wind, the clouds and the drops of rain. With the addition of water plants, the presence of fish or any other animal, as well as the curious insects that wander around the surface of the water, all these things can come together to form a charming and comforting scene unique to each garden. With all this going for it, it’s no wonder most of us love the idea of water in the garden.

With 108 pages of stunning photographs and great help on water gardens, this ebook is ideal for Landscapers, Gardeners and home gardeners who want to add a water feature to their garden.
