Every since I was a child I’ve been fascinated by water.

My childhood home sat right behind a small stream that my friends and I loved to play near. After school I would sometimes sit near the stream while I did homework just to let the sound of the running water calm my mind. Sometimes I would arrange the rocks in the stream to create channels and pools to watch the local wildlife swim, play and fish in those areas.

The cool, clear water of that small stream created an intense interest in flowing water that I would carry with me for the rest of my life.

Since then I’ve built and planned dozens of ponds and studied many more. My friends know me as “the pond guy”, and it’s a badge I wear with pride.

My goal in creating this website is to help people all over the world find that same sense of peace and tranquility I did as a child by building their own backyard pond.
