Abstract: The book of Yuan Ye(《园冶》) is a masterpiece in the history of Chinese traditional gardening, which is consisted of 11 monographs in three volumes. Although many statements in this book are related to waterscape, there is no special monograph of "design method of waterscape". The thought about waterscape and how to design waterscape in this book were being systematically collected and discussed by some examples in Chinese traditional garden, including the daily life waterfront and emotional sustenance with waterscape, the pursuit of waterscape ambience, the water system morphology and layout, and the dialogue between waterscape and other garden elements. It was tried to show a relatively complete and systematic "design method of waterscape" in the book of Yuan Ye(《园冶》).
