Yes, in fact, we are still building ponds. If it isn't too cold for the #koi it isn't too cold for us. We have been working full time on ponds throughout November and we are looking like we may still be building the first two weeks of December.
Then what? Then we spend our winter months designing the projects already committed for the Spring/Summer season of 2017. We don't really have "down time." Those of us not as involved in design are pouring over the books and stats of the previous season and seeing how we can improve our services moving forward. What we build and create is alive and always changing and so are our clients. We have to adapt to every whim of the market and the weather!
We are also busy creating products for our homegoods line Muddypaw. Creating interior decor and exterior decor for manufacture. Great design is our calling card no matter what we are busy creating! (although it must be said that I am hoping there is time to finish installing our guest bathroom this winter...:) This "paw" will be continuing her pond education this winter and learning more about shoreline restoration. I am also attending the online Blue Ocean Summit to connect with other people interested in water issues and water entrepreneurship. I am the researcher on this team and I can't wait to hit the books again!
