“The melody that water brings to a garden brings an entire landscape alive.” (Eric Triplett, The Pond Digger, Exotic Aquatics)
In any garden, of whatever size, ones senses are immediately drawn to the sight or sound of water – it is the focal point, whether intended or not. In a garden of grandiose proportions, the sight of a waterfall cascading into a lake below is captivating. In a modest garden, a little pond with a fountain is none-the-less appealing, albeit on a smaller scale. Water gardens are nothing new, of course. Thousands of years ago our ancestors created water features that would undoubtedly have made us gasp at their beauty and design. Learn how garden styles have evolved over the centuries and how to design your ideal garden through one of ADL's home study courses.
