XYZ landscape company sells you a landscape project ( I won’t be giving out the names of these companies and there are many.) and they include a water feature of some sort for let’s say $10,000.00 the price I sell it to XYZ landscape may be for $7500.00 to $8000.00.

Before I get started on this blog, let me start by saying I respect all pond companies and I’m not here to bash or complain about these other companies.

There are basically 2 types of ponds being built these days. Then there was the 3rd way (I’ll get back to the 3rd shortly). The fist type of pond is a hole in the ground with strait walls and only rocks around the border of the pond. Hill Country Water Gardens If you go to Hill Country Water Garden in Cedar Park Texas and tour their property, you will see this style replicated all over the yard. HCWG is a beautiful store and it is always fun to take the tour. I visit it weekly and buy hundreds of fish a year...

Why it is important to know the rules of DE-cholrinating your pond

Posted by in GoProPond Blog And Video Uploads | 0 comments

  Let me start by saying with a choked up throat.  IT HAPPENED — we killed some fish. Koi are my favorite pet and I’m devastated that this happened. Watch this video to see my dedication for the Koi. It doesn’t matter how good of a pond builder you are or how well you clean a pond if you don’t know the exact amount of water you put in a pond. Everyone makes mistakes . Hopefully my mistake and loss will teach you not to make the same mistake. Here is the story on what happened. We got...
