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 […]

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 […]

Regardless of where I am or what I’m doing, the immense talent out there among […]

July/August 2016

Perpetual Pond Passion In the last issue, I was super excited about “Living the Pond Life” and wrote my column about it. Well, it happened again. I’m not sure how much excitement this publisher can take in one year! I received an email out of the blue from the gentleman in the photo below, Blake […]

May/June 2016

I’m Living It! If you use Facebook, there’s a good chance you’ve seen a movement called “Living the Pond Life [click here].” It’s a lifestyle group that was started by Karrie and Lloyd Lightsey. The group is a great place to visit and enjoy ponds, the pond lifestyle and photos of people who are loving […]

March/April 2016

Spring Brings Renewal, Refocus It’s the spring issue, and POND Trade has plants on the brain. Just check out that beautiful cover! That basket of lilies cried out to grace it. Imagine it in your or your client’s pond. Plants have such a strong presence in a pond. They’re not only visually appealing, but they’re […]

January/February 2016

Don’t get me wrong: POND Trade has a strong digital presence that puts our awesome content in front of more visitors every […]
