May / June POND Trade

May / June 2023

Sn­­akes on a Plane? No — snakes on the cover of the May / June POND Trade issue! Full disclosure: I am deathly afraid of “my nemesis” (yes, snakes), but seeing that you can find them in yards on every continent except for Antarctica, it’s a really important topic to get across to our readers. […]

March / April 2023 POND Trade magazine

March / April 2023

Phew! Another year, another contest put to bed. Let me tell you, this was a BIG year. We had a record number of entries — almost 90! Since I get to see every single entry (lucky me!) I had a few observations. First off, you guys are really talented, but I think you know that. […]

January / February 2023 POND Trade magazine

January/February 2023

Out with the old, and in with the new! Happy New Year to you all, and best wishes for a great new year. So, what’s on tap (no pun intended) for 2023? Are you promoting certain types of water features? Have you developed a niche? Are you planning on building some recreational ponds? What about […]

November / December 2022 POND Trade

November / December 2022

If you live in a cooler climate like I do (the U.S. Midwest), perhaps you are experiencing a slowdown this time of year. It might be time to sit back and take a long-deserved break. You’ve worked hard all season, and it’s time to take it down a notch. Now is also a good time […]

September/October Pond Trade

September / October 2022

You never know who you’re going to meet when you’re traveling. It’s so fun to meet people at various pond events and connect with them. I’ve chatted with people at the Water Garden Expo, Pondemonium, Atlantic-OASE conferences, and regional koi shows around the country, and they often share a topic with me that they would […]

July / August 2022 Issue

Family with a capital F! (Hopefully you noticed our cover and didn’t immediately open the issue to read my column first.) What a great experience John Magyar and his son Elijah had working together to create a memorial pond and waterfall for John’s mother. What a priceless time to bond with your son and also […]

May/June 2022 Issue

Yes indeed, pond season is in full swing. While it’s true that many of you have nice weather year-round, those of us in four-season climates dream about and eagerly await the thaw of winter and start of spring, when we can return to enjoying the outdoors — and specifically, our yards and ponds.  Are you […]

March/April 2022 Issue

I’m so glad I’m not a judge this year! Granted, the Supreme Stream Court does all the judging for our Water Artisans of the Year contests, and then I process all the entries. But still — I wouldn’t want to have to make those decisions, especially this year (our largest contest to date). You guys […]

January/February 2022 Issue

Another year, come and gone. Instead of thinking ahead about New Year’s resolutions, I’d like to take some time and reflect on 2021. It was certainly a better year than 2020! I think most people can say that. It’s hard to believe that after almost two years, were still in a worldwide pandemic. As we […]

November/December 2021 Issue

Like many of you, I love a good formal pond. I first discovered how cool a formal water feature could be after looking through some of last year’s entries in the Water Artisans of the Year contest — specifically the formal features and fountains category. We were blown away by the beauty of so many […]
