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

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?

November/December 2019 Issue

OK, get ready — I’m going to gush a little bit. I’m officially a mother-in-law! My son Evan got married to sweet Maggie in September at the Como Park Zoo and Conservatory in St. Paul, Minnesota. The beautiful bride (and handsome groom, I might add) had to share the spotlight with a breathtaking waterlily collection, […]

September/October 2019 Issue
