We Love Feedback!

1611ptissueAnother 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, business and social media marketing strategies, and even some thought-provoking, inspirational messages — just to name a little bit.

The industry seems more vibrant and energized than ever, and we are proud to be one of your go-to resources for all things pond-related.

As our Editorial Committee ramps up for 2017 and we continue to fill the calendar with new, exciting content, I want to make one thing abundantly clear. We listen to you! I’m always on the lookout for unique, interesting and relevant topics that affect our readers.

  • What kinds of stories would you like to see more of in upcoming issues of POND Trade?

Click here and drop us a line and we would love to hear from you.

In keeping with the year’s trend, this final issue of 2016 is brimming with great stories for your reading pleasure. We are especially excited to feature Stanley Sensenig’s article about his innovative, self-guided pond tour, click here. This is a fantastic concept that could make you rethink your approach to selling water features.

We’ve also got an eye-opening feature about adding an avian element to your pond from Betsy Puckett at Droll Yankees, click here. If you weren’t aware of the benefits of accommodating birds near your pond, maybe this story will make you consider it in the future.

John Adams wrote our cover story about wetland filtration [click here], which includes some valuable, straightforward construction tips. Finally, you won’t want to miss Lloyd Lightsey’s inspirational piece called “Living the Pond Life.” His heartfelt commentary about the phrase behind the popular Facebook group provides a thoughtful perspective about why we do what we do, and how it all fits into life’s bigger picture. It’s a great note to end 2016 on, as we gear up for another exciting year ahead of us.

Happy PONDering!
