This series from Pavilion highlights a unique approach to detailed garden design through an attractive combination of close-up photographs and informative text. Published as a set of pocket-sized books, this series is specially designed to lead the eye straight to the heart of the garden, focusing on those individual details so important to the overall design of your garden. Water not only nourishes the garden but over the centuries has been used in countless ways to enhance its design. This book traces its multifarious uses from the subtle contemplative harmonies of ancient Oriental gardens to the theatricality of the Moorish influenced gardens of Spain. In many English and American gardens we see spectacular features such as fountains, cascades, pools, grottoes and classical statuary. The illustrations show how, even in gardens of intimate scale, water can be subtly used to reflect, animate and harmonize natural surroundings in a satisfying way.
