Yet few people consider building this beautiful feature, perhaps in the belief that it will be too difficult or too expensive or that their garden is not big enough. However, as this unique book shows, creating a stream requires little more expertise than it takes to build a pond, while the cost is not excessive and, like the work, can be spread over several months or even years. The size of your garden is really no limitation, as long as the stream is kept in proportion. A stream provides the opportunity to grow a huge variety of plants, including striking and attractive marginals as well as trees, shrubs and grasses. Detailed guidance is provided on planting design for the stream and pools, and an extensive directory describes how to grow dozens of lovely species. To demonstrate how the principles and techniques are put into practice, the book also includes two fascinating case histories showing the development of two actual stream gardens.”
