Review by Library Journal Review

Davitt follows up his Small Spaces: Beautiful Gardens with this new volume on incorporating water features into small backyards and city gardens, devoting chapters to natural pools, formal pools and fountains, wall fountains, streams, bog gardens, tub plantings, and natural waterfalls. Each section provides several before-and-after case studies from his own landscaping projects, many of them in New York City. Compared with the many other recent titles on water gardening, Davitt's excels particularly at showing how formal pools and fountains can transform cramped urban spaces such as courtyards and tiny backyards. However, much of the book reads more like a showcase album for his landscaping business (down to catty remarks about the ugliness of the "before" gardens) than a manual for general readership. Recommended for larger landscaping collections.-Beth Clewis Crim, Prince William P.L., VA (c) Copyright 2010. Library Journals LLC, a wholly owned subsidiary of Media Source, Inc.
