Wikipedia defines aquascaping as "the craft of arranging aquatic plants, as well as rocks, stones, cavework, or driftwood, in an aesthetically pleasing manner..." This holds true in the aquarium world as well as in the water feature world. Since I am not very well versed in the aquarium world, we'll just stick to the outdoor water feature industry. So in layman's terms, what is aquascaping? My definition of aquascaping is: using water gardening to fill a void in someone's life that they didn't know existed.
Let's face it, often times things or people come into our lives that we have never known before. Once they are there, we're not quite sure how we survived without them. Such is the way with water features.

It's totally an art that's left up to the inturpretation of the user/viewer. Since that user is you, where do you view that new water feature in your back yard?
