“The “Pond” Was a Hole,” Mr. Fix-it Wins Contractor’s Corner Price

Published on October 20, 2017

A hero comes in all shapes and sizes, and pond contractors definitely fit into this category. The winner of this quarter’s Contractors Corner prize is Josiah Crousore, of Specialty Water Gardens and his story of a demoralized pond is a common one in the industry.

From the article:
There were crooked lines in the one patio and seven months’ worth of jobsite trash and cigarette butts littering the ground. The “pond” was a hole with an odd collection of glued-together cinderblock, plywood and rebar sticking up, just waiting to impale the unlucky passer-by.

 After cleaning up the original pond design and installation, the new pond feature included an “undergravel suction grid that connected to a biofilter via submersible magnetic drive pump and returned to the pond with a pipe that flowed into the pump chamber of the skimmer.”
