Water running over rocks is a welcome element in any outdoor space, having the power to soothe or excite. Whether you want a small feature or a series of waterfalls, this practical guide provides a host of inspirational ideas for using water and rock in your garden. Step-by-step photographic sequences and cross-sectional artworks show how to build a range of features, including a Rock-edged Pool, a Wildlife Pool and free-standing features such as a Cobble Fountain or a Brimming Urn. Useful sections look at introducing fish into a pond, while a helpful chapter on care and maintenance explains how to keep your water and rock garden in top condition.
