Pondemonium: The Pond Guy on Water Gardening, Ponds, and Business Success
St. Charles, IL (PRWEB) February 21, 2008
For the sixth year in a row, Aquascape and a group of Certified Aquascape Contractors (CAC) will descend on Walt Disney World's Epcot® Center to create water gardens of the future. The water feature displays are an integral part of the Epcot® International Flower and Garden Festival. This year Aquascape and its group of CACs will construct six water features.
"We're excited to showcase the future of water gardening," states Ed Beaulieu, Vice President of Field Research at Aquascape. "Water is our planet's most valuable resource and we will demonstrate how we can be more responsible to the environment by addressing water conservation." Water feature displays will include a rainwater harvesting system, an 11' x 16' ecosystem pond, decorative AquaBasin™ fountains, and an indoor feature located in the Garden Festival Center. The planned water displays are aligned with Disney's mission of sustainability and environmentally friendly initiatives.
The challenge each year involves building the displays in the middle of the night so as not to disrupt the grounds while visitors are present. Beaulieu will once again lead the crew for this year's Epcot® build.
