WINE REVIEW – KOI POND CELLARS WINE SELECTIONS

By: Mike Gannon | Posted On: August 19th, 2014 | 2 Comments on WINE REVIEW – KOI POND CELLARS WINE SELECTIONS

koi pond cellars wine review

How great is it to write a pond and water garden blog yet be able to do wine reviews and it is not out of place, a wine review that is still topical to ponds and water gardens. I recently took part of a wine tasting event, a wine tasting done on a live radio show, with a company that makes mixing ponds and wine easy; two things I love. Well the wine label of Koi Pond Cellars really made this pairing come together nicely. Wine and ponds, how fine!

HOW TO CHOOSE A POND AND WATER FEATURE CONTRACTOR

By: Mike Gannon | Posted On: January 12th, 2014 | 5 Comments on HOW TO CHOOSE A POND AND WATER FEATURE CONTRACTOR

At some point most of us will have to do business with a contractor of some type. A business relationship with a contractor can be very personal. At times a contractor will be almost living with you for a few days, maybe a few weeks, maybe more. These days people who go out on just a lunch date (that may or may not last more than an hour) will sometimes get complete background checks and spend hours, maybe days researching their potential lunch date! So what type of criteria are you using to choose your pond contractor who will be “living” with you for a few days or more, with access to your yard, exposure to your spouse, kids and pets; and installing a semi-permanent, major feature of your home’s landscape?

POND DECORATING CAN EXTEND YOUR POND ENJOYMENT!

By: Mike Gannon | Posted On: November 2nd, 2009 | No Comments on POND DECORATING CAN EXTEND YOUR POND ENJOYMENT!

As a New Jersey pond guy I am always looking for ways to encourage my pond customers to enjoy their ponds and water gardens or extend the enjoyment of their pond in the areas like the northeast where many ponds go through a “shut-down” period.

A great way to extend the enjoyment of a pond installation is decorating around the pond. In many neighborhoods one can see all sorts of seasonal displays pop up on front lawns; often times a hay bale with some cornstalks or other seasonal items. This type of display is great to extend to the pond. Sure the aquatic plants have stopped growing so how can you add visual interest to the pond? Add a seasonal display by using some nice large pumpkins, gourds, a hay bale. When Halloween rolls around try some carved, lighted jack-o-lanterns, and other spooky seasonal items, a scary skeleton pond side is great fun for the kids. For Thanksgiving and Christmas time add some lighting, a few strands of mini lights around a pond can really add quite a bit of dimension and beauty to the setting or put a banner of your favorite football team by the pond!

THE POWER OF A POND

By: Mike Gannon | Posted On: October 16th, 2009 | No Comments on THE POWER OF A POND

When I first got involved with ponds I don’t think I fully realized how encompassing the subject of ponds, watergardens, and waterfalls is. For me personally; ponds have actually become central to how I live my life and spend my days whether it be for business, recreation, or family time. The influence that ponds have over my psyche is pretty dominating. Being aware of this fact about myself, it only was natural for me to start to look outside of my experiences with ponds, waterfalls, water gardens, koi ponds, and water features in general, and to look further as to how it affects others regardless of if it is their first experience with a pond or they have many decades of experience with ponds; I look at what type of reaction it creates in people with the same interest.
