July/August 2019 Issue

As I finish up the design touches of this issue, I realize that we have three solid business topics — and all three are topics you are going to want to soak in. You all know how to build beautiful ponds, but you also need to have really good business sense and advice in order […]

May/June 2019 Issue

First off, happy spring, everyone! By the time you read this column, water should be flowing nicely, with fish happily swimming and aquatic plants starting to green up and bloom. I love this time of year. I have a little personal story to share with you. My son Evan got engaged a couple of months […]

March/April 2019 Issue

Yes indeed, it’s the moment we’ve all been waiting for. I so wish we had the print version of a drum-roll app to push right about now! It’s been quite the year for entries. At first, they were coming in slowly, but once that deadline hit, we got a huge surge of submissions. I guess […]

January/February 2019 Issue

Yahoo! It’s 2019. Happy New Year! At the stroke of midnight, I was thinking of all the resolutions I will make in 2019 — NOT. Whether you’re a resolution person or not, I know one thing that’s on the minds of all pond professionals’ minds out there: more ponds in 2019! Here at POND Trade, […]

November/December 2018 Issue

Got your attention with that headline, I bet! As I was finishing up designing this issue, I came to the “final” page, page 66 (see image, right), which shows a beautiful photo with the catch phrase “Time to Reflect.” Now that the leaves are falling, colder weather is setting in (at least for us up […]

Round Three of the Water Artisans of the Year Awards

Fall is in the air, so it’s time to start netting those ponds to keep out all the falling leaves. At least we’ll start getting some more moderate temperatures to make the pondside experience all the more comfortable. It just so happens that fall also marks the start of the entry period for our Water […]

July/August 2018 Issue

Anthony Archer-Wills is in the house! I met Anthony and his lovely wife Pauline last year at the IWGS symposium in Pennsylvania. I sat next to them at dinner, and I went out on a limb and asked him if he would be willing to write an article for us. To my delight, his answer […]

May/June 2018 Issue

For me, springtime is the most wonderful time of the year. Everything feels so renewed when the trees bud, the flowers emerge, and most importantly, water begins to flow through our ponds again! But this spring, as I write my column, my dog is snuggled up, snoring loudly at my feet. There’s a dusting of […]

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 […]
