With the state of the pond and water garden industry being so strong, everybody is looking forward to a great 2017. However, before we move on, we wanted to provide a quick look at some of our most popular pond articles — by page views — in 2016. The topics run the gamut: pond construction insights; pond design in Oregon, koi discussion and proposed koi regulations from the Wildlife Department late in the year.
