Welcome to Pond Talk!

I’m Mark Washburn and after 20 years of helping pond owners as a professional pond management consultant, I wanted to share what I’ve come to learn on this website.  It will be an ever-evolving resource, with information coming directly from my work with water gardens, ponds, and lakes.

Mostly, this site is for people who want to enjoy their ponds more. As ponds go, this includes anything that holds water or ponds of any size.  Small or large, it doesn’t matter because we talk about them all here.  From building tips to managing water quality, fish health, and most everything in between, we’ll eventually cover it.

If there’s something you’d like to see here, please let us know…we can research it, consult with our resident experts, and update the website with more helpful information!

To stay up to date with everything we post here, be sure to subscribe to our newsletter…we send out new articles regularly and most often during the spring and summer months.  Or if you’re more into social, we have a Youtube channel that gets updated regularly too!

Thanks again for your interest and for stopping by…and best wishes with your pond!
