March/April 2018 Issue

I love a winner and think you will, too. Our Water Artisans of the Year issue [link] is quickly becoming one of my favorite issues of the year. It blows me away to see all the talent out there. I get the honor of reviewing and sorting out all the submissions so the judges can […]

January/February 2018 Issue

I’m not much of a list person. My son is, though. Every year since he was about 10 years old, he makes a “top 10” list of his favorite songs and albums over the past year. I guess he’s rubbing off on me, because now I have an urge to create a “top 10” list […]

November/December 2017 Issue

It is hard to believe that this is the last issue of 2017. Where has the time gone this year? It seems like we were just wrapping up our overwintering cover story (“Chill Out!” January/February 2017) from last winter. And here we are, bracing for the end of this year’s pond season. Before we get […]

September/October 2017 Issue

Right about this time of year, our team here at POND Trade starts planning articles for the year ahead. As I was sitting back forming a list (oh yes — I love my lists!), an idea came to me. We get so many requests for information through our website in response to our articles. The […]

July/August 2017

POND Trade asked Chris Ostrander to write an article about spillways and fountain bowls for this issue. These bowls certainly are a hot ticket right now, and I don’t see this trend going away anytime soon. But what really took me by surprise was how spillways are dotted throughout this issue. Of course, Chris has […]

May/June 2017

Before I get into what’s on my mind, I just have to say how excited I am that spring is here. We’re finally hearing that joyous sound of running water in our backyards again. And for those of you lucky people down south and out west, be thankful that you have water features to enjoy […]

March/April 2017

Oh yes, we do! It’s been a crazy, but fun few months processing and organizing all the amazing entries for our first-ever Water Artisans of the Year contest. There certainly is tremendous talent out there. It goes without saying — you guys are GOOD! We’ve dedicated most of this issue to highlight the winners. Hopefully […]

January/February 2017

Happy New Year! Can you believe it? Another year just flew by! I surely hope I don’t sound like an old person saying that, but really, I think time is picking up speed. Are you are resolution maker? I’m not. But if I were, I’d have a few things on my personal list of things […]

November/December 2016

We Love Feedback! Another great year is coming to a close. 2016 was a busy year for us here at POND Trade, as we covered a wide spectrum of editorial content, including water feature construction and maintenance, water gardening and seasonal horticulture, profiles of koi varieties from all over the world, engineering and technical tips, […]

September/October 2016

When I’m not reviewing articles and photos for upcoming issues, you might find me embarking on various pond tours and visits, attending water gardening trade shows around the country, or perhaps just perusing through all of your posts on Facebook. Regardless of where I am or what I’m doing, the immense talent out there among […]
