The Q&A Archives: Landscaping Creeks

Question: Can you recommend a book on landscaping creeks. We have a creek running through our front yard and we have not been able to locate a book on landscaping creeks & streams. We plan to do this job this summer.<br>

Answer: Most books that deal with water gardening and ponds have a section on streamside areas. Here are several:<br><br>Water Gardening (in the Burpee American Gardening Series), by Ken Druse (Prentice Hall, 1993, ISBN 0-671-84645-0)<br><br>Gardening with Water, by James Van Sweden (Random House, 1995, ISBN 0-679-42946-8)<br><br>The Stream Garden, by Archie Skinner and David Arscott, (Ward Lock Ltd, London, 1994. ISBN 0-7063-7154-2)<br><br>At the Water's Edge: Gardening with Moisture-Loving Plants, by Philip Swindells (Ward Lock Ltd, London 1988, dist. by Sterling Publishing, NY, NY, ISBN 0-7063-6993-9)<br><br>Hope this helps.
