I have looked through many books about building a stream, waterfall and pond in my backyard and this book is by far the most helpful. Design wise, there are just so many more photos than most books, which is helpful when coming up with design ideas I like. They also have plant lists for each of the garden examples they show as well, some with up to 25 plants on them. This is definitely not a book for dry rock gardeners, unless you are thinking of the dry streambed type of garden, as it is mostly focused on garden designs incorporating water, both running and still. Overall, I would highly recommend this book to anyone who is interested in putting in a water garden, stream, waterfall or pond in their backyard. The one thing I noticed though was that the text size is very small, almost unusually so for a published book.
Pretty impressed by this book. Nice dose of information and kept to the brim in educating readers on several basics in water and rock gardening. Supported by good photographs. Overall, a good book to keep and refer to.
Beautiful book - great illustrations and lots of good info -
nothing helpful about a rock garden, just water gardens
Very good book with nice pictures and projects.
