2018 May Newsletter

Welcome to May’s Newsletter

Happy May to all of you. Bring on the sunshine and May flowers! This month we are looking forward to our participation in the Marry Me in Monroe tour  on May 5th and our annual Mother’s Day Extravaganza on May 12th and 13th.  Our pond temperature is currently reading 50°F. The koi are happy eating their All-Season Dainichi Fish Food. We sell All-Season and Growth-Plus Fish Food in the gift shop. Come on in and stock up to keep the koi growing and healthy. Is your pond still in need of maintenance and deep cleaning? Are you having trouble finding the time to do it? Let the pros handle it for you! Sign up here.

For this month’s How To we go over how to keep predators from your pond and protecting your fish. Check out What’s New and current Sales going on at Falling Water Gardens. For plants looking good right now and sold at the nursery, head on over to the Cool Plants section. Check out upcoming events and classes  for May and Falling Water Designs‘ most Recent Projects.

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.
