TADPOLES IN YOUR BACKYARD WATER GARDEN POND

By: Mike Gannon | Posted On: February 27th, 2016 | 2 Comments on TADPOLES IN YOUR BACKYARD WATER GARDEN POND

tadpole new jersey pond

I learned while researching this blog topic of tadpoles that the ancient Egyptians used the image of a tadpole in their system of hieroglyphics. I thought it was pretty cool that the tadpole made it into the sacred carvings of this ancient culture. The image of a tadpole was drawn to represent the number and quantity of 100,000. I wondered why would a tadpole be used to represent this massive number?

WATER HYACINTH – IN AND OUT OF YOUR WATER GARDEN

By: Mike Gannon | Posted On: January 15th, 2014 | 28 Comments on WATER HYACINTH – IN AND OUT OF YOUR WATER GARDEN

water garden new jersey

You could say that the history of the Water Hyacinth began on December 16, 1884. The “World’s Industrial and Cotton Centennial Exposition”, or the World’s Fair, opened on that day in New Orleans, LA. Among the many amazing wonders on display a never before seen herb was on display in Horticultural Hall. The herb, Eichornia crassipes, was an aquatic floating plant with dark green thick leaves and a beautiful delicate purple and blue flower with a yellow spot accenting several petals. This horticultural curiosity of the time quickly escaped the confines of Horticultural Hall and invaded the American waterways of the south.

THEMED POND DESIGNS. A GREAT FORM OF SELF EXPRESSION.

By: Mike Gannon | Posted On: January 7th, 2013 | 1 Comment on THEMED POND DESIGNS. A GREAT FORM OF SELF EXPRESSION.

Theme ponds. Theme ponds? Yes, theme ponds!

How about a pond design based on a theme? The overriding theme for about 99% of the pond I build for people are “natural”; when the time comes to discuss design concepts pretty much everyone always says I want it to look really “natural”. But how about thinking outside of the box of natural looking ponds; what about planning a fun looking pond, or a pond that really reflects who you are or what you find pretty.

THE 2013 POND. WHAT ARE YOUR POND RESOLUTIONS?

By: Mike Gannon | Posted On: January 3rd, 2013 | No Comments on THE 2013 POND. WHAT ARE YOUR POND RESOLUTIONS?

HAPPY NEW YEAR!!

Its 2013, the New Year is actually upon us and already rolling along! As we all “de-holidify” and return to our normal routines; many of us think it’s a good time to make changes and resolutions. I like the chance for a resolution because it seems that there is always something in my life that needs to change, or needs improvement. I welcome the chance to get better in every part of life. For me that always means that in the New Year I look how I can do things differently with my pond since that is a huge part of my life. There’s a million things that I want to do and change with my pond and right now is the time for me to think about those and plan to make the changes in 2013 that I can.  Of course I have to consider what I can afford to do, what I need to do, and what I want to do.

GIN RIN KOI, A REAL EYE CATCHER!

By: Mike Gannon | Posted On: July 2nd, 2012 | No Comments on GIN RIN KOI, A REAL EYE CATCHER!

gin rin koi

If there is a koi that could have “jazz hands”, the Gin Rin koi would have to be the one. It’s flashy and glitzy. Some Gin Rin have more sparkle than Michael Jackson’s right hand glove (or left hand glove, I’m not really sure). The Gin Rin variety is a star among the koi world.
