Summary
Learn how to transform an ordinary backyard garden into a true showpiece. Originally published in 1924 under the original title of The Book of Water Gardening, Peter Bisset shares with readers timeless advice and tips for creating a variety of water gardens. After experiencing one, it's easy to see why these gardens hold such appeal; these splashing fountains and ponds make hot days seem cooler, and they also attract birds and butterflies to your backyard. Even tiny tabletop fountains offer soothing sounds to drown out a busy street or a noisy neighbor.The Water Gardening Idea Book gives in full detail all the practical information necessary for the selection, grouping, and successful cultivation of aquatic and other plants required in the making of a water garden and its surroundings
