    Thoroughly ‘user friendly’ in organization and presentation Part of the superbly produced ‘Animal Planet & Pet Care Library’ series from T.F.H. Publications, “Setup And Care Of Garden Ponds” by Terry Anne Barber is a profusely illustrated, step-by-step instruction guide covering all aspects of creating, planting, stocking, and maintaining a garden pond of any size appropriate for the available terrain. There are many factors involved, including the benefits of garden ponds, determining the desired pond size and shape, choosing and planting garden pond compatible plants, selecting the proper fish and other aquatic animal life for the pond, keeping the water in a pond healthy and avoiding such biohazards as mosquito breeding, and what is necessary to enjoy a garden pond in every season of the year. Thoroughly ‘user friendly’ in organization and presentation, “Setup And Care Of Garden Ponds” is enthusiastically recommended for anyone contemplating the creation or renewal of a garden pond.
