The soothing sight and sound of water is one of the greatest pleasures a garden can offer. Now those with small gardens or even no garden at all, can enjoy the delights of water features with this practical guide to designing, building and planting your own original container water gardens. Here ideas and step-by-step instructions for over 25 small-scale, low-maintenance water features to suit small gardens, patios, balconies and even indoors. All are surprisingly simple to construct and install. From a miniature pond in a shrub tub to a pebble fountain in a pot, or from a free-standing cascade for a patio to a decorated watering-can with water pouring over a paved or pebbled area, there are plenty of ideas for small outside spaces. Projects for indoors include a table feature with flowing water and house plants, and a pedestal rock pool for the conservatory. An illustrated plant directory lists over 80 plants suitable for different types of water garden, with details of propagation and attention required, information on whether it is a floating plant, a border plant or a water-loving plant, and whether it is suitable for indoors or outdoors.
