â€œMy garden is my most beautiful masterpiece.â€
- Claude Monet
Monet, the French painter considered the father of
modern water gardening for the frenzied imitation his
famous â€œWaterliliesâ€ caused, was proudest, not of his
art, but of his pond and garden.
The sound of water trilling and bubbling over stones,
the reflections of ripples flickering in the sunlight, fish
dancing and whirling around each other in an ever
changing circular ballet â€” there is nothing more
engaging than the fish pond. Long the focus of
peaceful meditation in eastern cultures, where no
garden is complete without water, contemplation of
the pond has stirred the hearts of millions, spanning
all cultural borders.
Maybe you would enjoy a tranquil pond filled with
multicolored, fragrant waterlilies, like Monetâ€™s pond,
where the emphasis is on the beautiful blooms and
fish only serve to keep insects controlled.
Perhaps you are captivated by the amazing colors
and patterns of schools of bejeweled Koi, coming
when you call to nibble treats from your fingers.
Or you might like the idea of a naturally balanced
pond where colorful flowering plants and clouds
of goldfish live together, each supporting the other
so that all thrive.
Whatever you decide, this guide will help you create
the beautiful, low maintenance pond of your dreams.
The magic of your own beautiful water garden is
waiting for you!
