gardening with waterGardening with Water

by James van Sweden

According to renowned landscape designer James van Sweden, no garden is too small to benefit from the soothing, sensuous qualities of water. Gardening with Water covers everything from birdbaths and small fountains to waterfalls, swimming pools, lily pools, and water edges. Writing for professional and nonprofessional gardeners alike, van Sweden begins with an overview of influences -- from Frank Lloyd Wright's "Falling Water" to palace gardens in Kyoto, Japan -- before surveying close to a hundred of his own projects to illustrate how he and Wolfgang Oehme introduce water into their garden designs. Several chapters are devoted to practical questions: what to plant, where to plant, whom to contact, and how to build. Clear instructions are supplemented with numerous illustrations, extensive diagrams, and a detailed glossary of trees, plants, and flowers (including Oehme and van Sweden's trademark grasses). Selected by the American Horticultural Society as one of the seventy-five best gardening books of the last seventy-five years.
