One of the perks to being a Certified Aquascape Contractor is being invited to the cool events and unique pond builds all across North America. On this occasion Tussey Landscaping was invited to participate in a pond build for YouTube star Logan Paul in LA. He just recently purchased a home in Hollywood, and mentioned in one of his videos that he wants to put in a koi pond. The phone of Greg Wittstock, owner of Aquascape, blew up with people telling him Aquascape should install one for him.
So on the first week of December, a legion of CAC's descended into LA, teamed up, and knocked out a gorgeous pond with a bridge, a beautiful stream, and bubbling urns.
The event was originally planned as a two day build. But Logan couldn't be there after noon on the second day, so the goal was to have it finished by 10 AM the following day. We got out the lights, rallied late into the night and got it 90% completed on the first day. There were many bone tired people that night, as a lot of them were from the East Coast with a 3 hr time difference. But it paid off. The pond was coming together nicely.
The next morning the CAC team worked to finish up the details and clean up while Greg Wittstock and Logan Paul went to go pick out fish in the 'Cool Bus'. Logan had not seen the pond yet. A big curtain was set up to hide the pond so that it couldn't be seen from the house. When Greg and Logan arrived at the house with the fish, everyone gathered behind the curtain except for Logan and his gang, and the curtain was dropped for the dramatic reveal.
As an additional surprise, Kamp Kenan was there from Florida to give him an albino soft shell Chinese turtle. Logan loved it and the turtle was added to the Maverick team.
Logan was thrilled. His backyard now not only has a koi pond, but beautiful bubbling urns, waterfalls, and a bridge that crosses over to his gym. It really is a peaceful area. Enjoy the finished photos below. Let us know what you think in the comments!

Nature Ages Beautifully
Are you struggling to achieve the water quality you would like? Cloudy water, or excessive algae? We’ve got the solution for you. No one is more qualified than the experts at Tussey Landscaping, based out of Hollidaysburg Pa, and servicing State College, Altoona, Bedford, and Johnstown areas.
Your Aquascape Ecosystem pond is a living breathing body of water with all the functions of nature; just like a lake or river in the wild. With the Aquascape system, your pond will have everything in place to harbor that biological life.
To start and maintain this biological life, you need to add beneficial bacteria to your pond regularly. And there are products available to treat with manually, but the absolute best solution that’s ever been available is the Aquascape Automatic Dosing System. At Tussey Landscaping, we have been in the water gardening world for 20 years, and never has there been a solution available that is this effective and consistent.
The results from the Auto Dosing System are much better than anything we ever tried before, in fact the water quality is flawless. It’s better than even when you may have been very consistent with manually treating your pond with the beneficial bacteria.
The Auto Dosing System is a small unit that is installed close to your skimmer box and a 1/4” line is run into the skimmer. The system is then programmed for your pond, and it precisely treats your pond with the exact amount of bacteria needed. It works kind of like an IV, with a bag, and a pump that slowly drip feeds the treatment into your pond 24/7.
The bacteria that is used with the Auto Dosing System is more effective than the bottled Beneficial Bacteria you buy off the shelf. The reason for this is that someone could overdose with the bottled bacteria you treat with manually, therefore Aquascape must create the formula in a way that will safeguard it against that chance, so that it will not hurt your fish or plants and ecosystem. However the Auto Dosing System eliminates human error, and there is no risk of overdose. Because of that the scientists at Aquascape can dial in that formula to exact proportions, which makes it be extremely effective and consistent. Much more so than any other product available.
