Everyday Gardeners

Plant. Grow. Live.

the big dig

finishedPondWe’re working on a new Better Homes and Gardens water gardening book, due out in December of this year. The book will be one in a new series of BHG garden books launched this last year.

One of the projects for the book is taking shape in my backyard. We spent several days digging, (see the photo of the “pit” below) and several days photographing the step-by-step process of how to construct this formal water garden. Last evening I planted some flowers around the perimeter. We’ll photograph the water garden again in July when the water garden plants have filled in a bit more, the annuals are blooming, and the water lilies are in their full glory.

  1. Our pond with it’s fish and water fall is one of the most relaxing sounds on earth. We live in town and the water fall masks the traffic noises. I like the simplicity of this plan . It makes me think about adding another water feature to our back yard.,
