Water Features & Fountains: Easy DIY Landscapes (eHow Easy DIY Kindle Book Series)

Only have a weekend to add a fountain to your lawn? Water Features & Fountains: Easy DIY Landscapes will easily guide you through the process and can help you finish by the time Monday rolls around. Inside you will find color photos, expert step-by-step instructions, safety concerns, and tools and materials you will need. Projects include a free-form pond, a cobblestone fountain, and a terra cotta fountain.Excerpt from the Book:Every living thing responds to the presence of water. Children and adults will reach out to touch a waterfall or pause to catch the reflections in a peaceful garden pond. Wildlife, given the right circumstances, will make homes nearby. Adding a garden pool is a wonderful way to bring the sights, sounds, and feel of water to a yard or garden.The style of a garden pool should complement its location as well as your personal style. Some pools lend themselves to the symmetry of formal landscapes, others mimic nature in their spontaneity and fit well with more casual landscapes. Spend some time dreaming and imagining before settling down to plan your project. And remember to factor in your commitment to on-going maintenance, lest your dreams be bigger than time and tolerance realistically allow.Table of Contents:IntroductionDesigning & Planning a Water FeatureProject: Plan & Design a Water GardenProject: Garden Pond & FountainProject: Free-form PondProject: Cobblestone FountainProject: Terra Cotta FountainAbout the Author:Kristen Hampshire is an award-winning magazine journalist and author of many books including Hobby Farms, 52 Backyard Landscaping Projects, Landscaping & Lawn Care, Stonescaping Made Simple and The Complete Guide to Landscape Projects.

If you're looking for a very simple pond with material you can find quickly at the home improvement store this book will work. For anything else or if you are looking for suggestions on a variety of water feature, don't bother.

Water features are too simple. I would like to see water walls and mindless fountains etc. Just very limited application ideas .

This book is very informative, it give the basic steps in doing a water feature. It also deliver valuable ideas on different types of water features including ponds.
