Synopsis: It surges down stairs, jets up from a spring, burbles from a stream--and water is the lifeblood of a garden that can transform it into a heavenly place. Capture the many exciting and sensual qualities of water, in features that range from formal fountains to wildlife ponds. Utterly awe-inspiring photographs exhibit dozens of magnificent examples, while descriptions first focus on natural elements of the water cycle-source, course, outlet, and destination--and then relate them to a man-made garden equivalent. So waterfalls become cascades, and a fountain emulates a spring. Construction blueprints illustrate how to put key ideas into practice, and there are lists of materials and equipment needed to construct every feature. Never has a book that's so practical been so inspirational! 192 pages (all in color), 9 3/4 x 11 1/4.

From Booklist: By way of introduction, this guide examines the miraculous nature of water, going on to pursue the concept of integrating water features into garden design. A group of stunning photographs enhances the text as it explores the history of water features in the gardens of diverse cultures. Archer-Wills effectively juxtaposes images of the natural world with vignettes that show how elements such as water spouts, pools, ponds, and rills can lend refinement to garden settings. In addition, blueprint-like drawings are interspersed to depict the unseen components and mechanical elements necessary to construct naturalistic streams, waterfalls, and both simple and more complex types of fountains. This inspiring effort contains a suppliers' list, with British sources only. Alice Joyce
