    I bought the book for my sister, but after previewing it had to keep it for myself. It is a wonderful reference book, tells me more than I thought it would in a “basic” book, but is also simple to understand as well as comprehensive in its delivery. Starting a pond or having one, this is a definite staple!

    A must for all pond owners!, January 21, 2001

    Even though the title has “planning” in it, the focus of the book deals with maintenance issues. Ms. Nash not only discusses water quality, algae issues, plant propogation, and plant and fish disease, but also how to prevent problems, and how to repair the problem once detected. There are also great photos that illustrate some of the more common pond problems.
    I have read better books on pond planning (her other book,”The Complete Pond Planner” and the Ortho series books are great), but I have found none that address the above issues as well as this one. A must read for all pond owners!
