The Water Gardener’s Bible

The Water Gardener’s Bible: A Step-by-Step Guide to Building, Planting, Stocking, and Maintaining a Backyard Water Garden.

The Water Gardener’s Bible: A Step-by-Step Guide to Building, Planting, Stocking, and Maintaining a Backyard Water Garden by Kelly Billing and by Ben Helm is a practical guide to the water gardening advent of the modern age.

In this century we live better on average that ancient kings and queens with the man power of nations at their personal disposal. Even the most impoverished person on the planet has random access to more information that an ancient noble would ever receive in a life time. We have education, electricity, and many of us are starting to live off the grid. What does this have to do with water gardening? Everything!

The Water Gardeners Bible faces this age were water gardens are accessible to anyone willing to shell out a few at the local home improvement store for a water gardening basin kit and pond pump filtration system if the one in the kit is not the right one necessary. Water gardening used to be reserved for the extremely resourceful. Just like printing and design used to be difficult but isn’t in this modern age; water gardening as an art and source of serenity has come home to roost with the masses drive way after drive way on one level or another. Whether it is a pot pond garden, or a larger pool water gardening has become the interesting thing to be doing that spans across more cultural barriers that major league sports.

In this book Ben and Kelly go through the step by step process or building your ideal water garden based on your desires and needs. The authors set you up to succeed in the next phase of planting and sowing into your water garden with plants that will go well with each other and the wildlife your garden attracts, or the manicured fish you add to the water garden.

One all the concepts are in place you will find that Kelly and Ben have set the garden you choose to complete up well in a way where you can maintain it relatively easy with some due diligence and attentiveness to this books specific but general advice on how to do it right. So, you can build a back yard environment worthy of grandstanding to your guests at dinner parties across America this coming season.
