Indoor Water Garden DesignBook - 2002
Here's twenty water garden designs that will bring elegant outdoor garden features inside the home. Designs come with step-by-step instructions, and cover a wide spectrum of choices to suit individual home interiors, available space, and budget considerations. The author discusses needed tools and equipment--everything from pumps and filters for the water features to the required building materials for both raised and sunken indoor pools. The projects are presented in a series of detailed photos and diagrams that are complemented with instructive text. Projects include water gardens that range in size from a tabletop fountain decorated with small plants to a large sunken conservatory pool embellished with luxuriant tropical greenery and distinctive lighting and seating features. Other designs include room corner pools, room divider fountains, a shell grotto with a small pond, and even an indoor swimming pool with an adjoining water garden. Following the design projects are a detailed plant directory with cultivation advice, and a directory of appropriate fish breeds for various pond types and sizes. A concluding chapter offers detailed advice on indoor water garden maintenance. More than 200 full-color illustrations.
