Building a backyard oasis, which is essentially a body of water in your backyard, may seem like a fairly easy process. However, Jean Brûlé discusses how there is much more to the art. You need to know which types of soil, clay, sand, or rocks to use in different areas. He shares his expert advice on how to create the perfect backyard oasis regardless of where you live, and how big the area you have to work with is.
