September/October 2021 Issue

I don’t know about you, but I’ve been having a really good summer. It’s the first time since the pandemic that I’ve done some business travel. I popped that mask on, jumped on a plane and flew to Kansas City to visit Powell Gardens with International Waterlily and Water Gardening Society (IWGS) members Susan Davis, […]

July/August 2021

Did I get your attention with that headline? I’ll bet I did. Not to worry, I’m not selling or going anywhere, and our editors, Jordan and Grant, are staying put, too. I just wanted to touch on the hot topic — and growing complaint that I keep hearing from many of you — that you […]

May/June 2021 Issue

I’m about to get on a bit of a soapbox here, but hang tight and hear me out. POND Trade was hacked about a month ago. Some devious person got into my account and sent out a bogus invoice to many of my advertisers and subscribers. I’m so sorry if you were affected by this! […]

March/April 2021 Issue

Well, well, well. We did it again. It’s hard to believe we’re publishing the results of our fifth Water Artisans of the Year contest. It seems like only yesterday that the POND Trade Editorial Committee was finalizing the rules and format of what would become our inaugural contest. And now here we are, celebrating the […]

January/February 2021 Issue

As the old saying goes, “Don’t let the door hit your a** on the way out!” I think most of us feel this way about 2020. I must say I’m looking forward to 2021 (hopefully) being a much improved year all-around. Out with the old, and in with the new! It’s been quite the strange […]

September/October 2020 Issue

I’m so glad to hear that a lot of contractors are really busy during these trying times. Who would have thought that a pandemic would cause many of you to have your busiest year yet? People are definitely more homebound right now, and there’s not many places you can safely go on vacation. What better […]

July/August 2020 Issue

With the year already halfway over, the world continues to deal with a lot of unknowns and uncertainty. Since we last met, things have gotten a tad better, at least. I live in the Chicagoland area, where we’ve moved into the next phase of reopening. These are all baby steps, but I have to admit […]

May/June 2020 Issue

As I write this, we are in the middle of a lockdown because of the Coronavirus pandemic. This is such a strange, unprecedented time. We hope you’ve all been practicing social distancing and are feeling healthy. How have you been staying busy? It appears that each state has created its own set of rules as […]

March/April 2020 Issue

Yep, it’s hard to believe — it’s already year four of the “Water Artisans of the Year” contest. Time flies when you’re working hard! It’s really exciting to see what a lot of you have been up to over the past year. One thing hasn’t changed: You all build some knock-your-socks-off ponds and water features! […]

January/February 2020 Issue

What are your goals for the next year? What do you want to accomplish? Are you looking to up your game and attend […]
