Pictures of Rob’s ponds are below.

The February meeting was held at the residence of Rob Shepler.  Rob presented his polyurea methods of pond linings and had samples of the product.  His own koi pond had a unique baffle to separate plants from the koi and stepping stones for crossing the pond.  As with most of us, Rob is redesigning constantly.  There was also had a nature” pond in the front yard for the critters in the area.

Six sites have been established for pond tour ticket sales.  Help is needed in making signs and all signs from last year should be returned for reuse.
