Summer is right around the corner and so is Father’s Day! For Father’s Day gift ideas, head over to the What’s New, Worth Checking Out & Current Sales page. If you’re still stumped on how to show Dad your appreciation for him, then get him a gift card to Falling Water Gardens. Don’t forget to mark your calendars for the Sorticulture Garden Arts Festival that is happening on June 8th-10th and our annual Father’s Day Weekend Celebration on June 16th & 17th (Dad’s get to take home a free goldfish).

For this month’s How To, we address what may be happening in your pond right now. For plants looking good right now, head on over to the Cool Plants section. We also have our list of events and classes for June. For our most recent landscaping projects, click here.

Rick Perry installed his first pond in his parents garden when he was only 15 years old! Ponds were built out of concrete back then. His parents still own that home and the original pond has been expanded and rebuilt twice, as the technology in pond liners, pumps, and filters continued to evolve. Rick’s love of water in the garden never went away and for over 16 years he continued to install ponds in his own homes and those of his friends and family. After someone suggested that Rick could make a living off of doing what he loved, Falling Water Designs was born. Rick has been involved in the water garden industry longer than there has been a water garden industry. He is very excited by the continuing innovations that are making it possible for every homeowner to enjoy a low maintenance, affordable water feature in the garden. Rick has been interviewed and featured in Koi World Magazine, Sports Illustrated, and Water Features for Every Garden by Helen Nash.
