The cover pulled me in. I was in the process of designing that very same 'round' pool, in a similar patio.But the interior of the book is what convinced me that the price was more than worth it.The photo images are crisp and beautiful, the text easy to understand and the entire book is a grand encouragement to creativity.This book is now one of the treasured volumes in my personl library.Anna Marie Fritz, author and artist (and water gardener).

We had borrowed this book from the library while planning our pond and thought it was so good that we wanted to buy it to have as reference. Excellent reference for design, plants and fish.

Good book with lots of gorgeous pictures. It gives you all around good advise on all sorts of water features. Good if you are going to do it yourself and excellent if you are going to have someone else do it for you

A great reference for the home gardener. Very clear color pictures tospark ideas for your water feature.
