Paul Aaroe/Special to The Morning Call
June 9, 2006
Homeowner: Paul Aaroe, Bethlehem
Project: I wanted to build a koi pond and stream that looked natural in our backyard.
Challenges: The biggest challenge was educating myself and planning the design. Location is so important. Also, the filtration system and layout makes a big difference in the amount and difficulty of caring for the pond.
Advice: Get a good pond nursery to work with you. I used many, but Glenn Shoemaker at Glenmar Nursery & Garden Center in Moorestown was a big help in the pump/filtration issues.
