9781770850095: Mini Encyclopedia of Garden Ponds: How to Plan, Construct and Maintain a Vibrant Pond That Will Enhance Your Garden

Mini Encyclopedia of Garden Ponds has all the know-how needed to create an ideal water feature in any garden. It examines a variety of ponds according to their size and type, from formal to wildlife, and considers their installation, from siting and budget to construction and equipment, such as filters and pumps.

Useful directories feature photographs and detailed descriptions of native and exotic plants and wildlife with which to stock a pond, with a particular emphasis on achieving and maintaining a balanced and healthy pond environment. A further chapter describes and illustrates the process of planting oxygenating marginal plants that enhance the pond's health and appearance. Water features, such as waterfalls and streams, are covered and a final section explains routine care and maintenance to ensure the pond looks its best all year round.

Mini Encyclopedia of Garden Ponds is written in an accessible and easy-to-understand style, and illustrated with a wealth of color photographs and illustrations to support the comprehensive text and bring to life the joys of pond ownership for the reader.

Review:

Written in an accessible and easy-to-understand style, and illustrated with a wealth of color photographs and illustrations to support the comprehensive text and bring to life the joys of pond ownership for the reader. An easy-to-use guide to building your own garden pond. (Ian Paulsen Birdbooker Report 215, The Guardian 2012-04-01)

Every topic from planning to planting and potential to problems is covered in this little paperback. (Muskogee Phoenix 2012-05-17)

Overall, this is a great beginner's book, full of thought-provoking ideas. And at $20, it's inexpensive enough to afford and the trim size of 6x7 makes it easy to carry around the nursery and public gardens. (Paul Nuhn, Master Gardener, Co-coordinator, Glenca Washington Gardener 2014-03-01)
