Water gardening

August 19, 2006

If you live in the Washington area and you’re thinking of putting a pond in your garden, the best place to go is Lilypons Water Gardens. There you’ll find all the inspiration you need, supplies, countless kinds of water lilies, koi, and experts to help you plan and stock your water garden. They’ll even install it for you.


Lilypons is about an hour’s drive from Washington in the countryside of Frederick County, Maryland. Once there, you can wander 300 acres of water lily and lotus beds, koi tanks, water gardens, and water features. The business has been family owned and operated since 1917, and it shows in the friendly atmosphere—how many garden centers do you know that encourage you to bring a picnic lunch and eat al fresco?
