In today’s fast-paced, electronically-dependent world, it’s harder than ever to connect with nature on a daily basis. That’s where the Pond Stars step in; redecorating yards one home at a time to create an escape from everyday life and to connect with wildlife right outside the door.
Pond Stars follows Chicago-based water feature specialists at Aquascape, Inc. as they combine technology with natural design principles to create beautiful, low-maintenance water features that transform landscapes into retreats. The team tackles everything from decorative fountains to entire backyard remodels, and major overhauls on ponds gone wrong.
Nat Geo WILD cameras follow every project from the initial concept to the finished landscape. Ponds are dug, rocks are selected, wildlife is carefully chosen, and the plants and flowers are installed, all while highlighting the science of water features and how they invigorate the surrounding ecosystem.
Meet The Pond Stars
Dive into a world of water features with Greg Wittstock, one of the most experienced backyard pond builders in the country. Greg owns Aquascape, Inc., the largest supplier of professional and hobbyist water feature products in the world. He is the Pond Stars boss and loves helping people reconnect with nature in their yards. Greg is joined by Ed, a scientist focused on the water environment of the project, and Brian, the foreman, who manages all of the construction. New guy Chris is along to learn the ropes. Together they build aquatic escapes one backyard at a time.
Tonight at 10P on the series premiere of Pond Stars: Turtle Power, the Pond Stars come out of their shell in Atlanta tackling two wild projects in just five days. The first job is for an environmental center, creating a pond specifically for rescued turtles. The turtle pond will be used as an outdoor classroom for an upcoming kids camp, if the team can finish in time.
