Anyone who adores the calming sound of falling water, but can’t afford an enormous water display should consult the ideas contained in this book. Ms. Adkins shows us, step by step, how each of us can embrace the fountain’s relaxing flow, whether it be a small, tabletop display, a basin surrounded by lush green ferns or a full fledged waterfall plunging over the edge in magnificent wonder. Key among the many illustrations are the schematic drawings illustrating how the pump and tubing fit into the fountain itself, how to calculate and maximize the flow of water in your own fountain, tips and suggested tools and elements that compose each artistic water concept. Great gift idea.
