BJL Aquascapes - Colts Neck Monmouth County New Jersey ) NJ )
Certified Aquascape Contractor BJL Aquascapes in Colts Neck, Monmouth County New Jersey (NJ) was asked, along with Atlantis Water Gardens In Denville NJ, & Full Service Aquatics In Summit NJ to help Nat Geo Wild's "The Pond Stars" build a 15x30' ecosystem pond complete with bubbling stacked slate urns, multiple underwater LED lights aquatic plants, entryway waterfalls, and spectacular inside office views for the guys from Animal Planets "Tanked" at ATM Headquarters in Las Vegas NV.
We traveled with #PondStars ,Greg, Ed and Brian , along with fellow Certified Aquascape Contractors Mike Gannon from Full Service Aquatics, Jaak Harju From Atlantis water Gardens & Aquascape Pro Distributors Chris Corcoran & Chad Morrill from Pacific Outdoor Living to create this awesome centerpiece for the entrance to ATM's headquarters.
This dream team of companies include two of Aquascape Inc's " Water Feature Artists Of The Year 2011, " Water Feature Artists Of The Year 2014, and Business Man Of The Year 2013, Top Distributor, & The Pond Stars themselves, so it was shaping up to be one really cool project. Now given the fact that we were only allowed two days to complete this project, and we were all "out of towners ", we all relied heavily on Chris Corcoran from Pacific Outdoor Living in Los Angeles to handle all of the logistics, and there were a ton of them.... and he nailed it! Great job, Chris and Chad, if it weren't for your team, we never would have had water running at 3:00 on day 2 !
No matter how good the team is, working in Las Vegas in early September means 100+ degree temperatures during the day, so on day #1 we muscled our way through 106 degree heat until the sun just about went down.
The end result was an absolutely beautiful ecosystem pond about 28" deep, with huge boulders, bubbling slate urn accents, and beautiful 3 direction waterfalls in a tight space ! It is the perfect fit for ATM's entry to their retail store that sees multiple tour buses of fans every single day. People were taking photos and videos of us while we were building it, now it sets as the backdrop for 100's of thousands of photos in front of the pond, and under their sign !
