The Natural Water Garden

The Natural Water Garden is a comprehensive and fresh how-to approach for constructing water features and the integrating them further into your landscape.

A book that comes with sustainable trends, a stormwater marsh created in Virginia is an excellent example of how to make the best use of a landscape to your favor when building your own watergarden and making sure that it has that natural look that is so essential to give that air of tranquil bliss and harmony.

Water gardens have been a part of civilization since the invention of the fountain, first harvested running water into our gardens for irrigation and drinking.

With technology, we can go beyond that, but how do we make sure that the water garden sits organically into the landscape? How do we make sure that placing it will fulfill our deep emotional connection between the earth and the water?

The Natural Water Garden will help you answer those questions, and still take you down the well treaded path of doing-it-yourself, the right way, the first time.

This 112-page paperback, with color photos and drawing, edited and published by Brooklyn Botanic Garden in December of 2001 for all regions measures 8.8 x 6 x 0.3 and ships at 7.8 ounces.

With extensive plant information on six regions of the US, basic water garden installing instructions and a catalog of plants and their role in the garden, The Natural Water Garden is a how-to manual with colored drawings and photos that will help you build a more balanced garden for a more environmentally friendly way of life.
