"Pond Stars" is a reality docu-series on Nat Geo Wild that redecorates yards one home at a time to create an escape from everyday life and to connect with wildlife right outside the door.

In today's fast paced, electronically dependent world it's harder than ever to connect with nature on a daily basis. This series follows Chicago-based water feature specialists at Aquascape, Inc. as they combine technology with natural design principles to create beautiful, low maintenance water features that transform landscapes into retreats. The team tackles everything from decorative fountains to entire backyard remodels to major overhauls on ponds gone wrong.

Nat Geo Wild cameras follow every project one backyard at a time. The dynamic trio creates aquatic escapes from the initial concept to the finished landscape. Ponds are dug, rocks are selected, wildlife is carefully chosen, and the plants and flowers are installed, all while highlighting the science of water features and how they invigorate the surrounding ecosystem. The team negotiates electrical wiring, thousand-pound boulders, and out-dated technology for a zoo habitat project. They install a 30-foot pond complete with underwater camera for a football team owner, and replicate a brown trout stream in a client's backyard. All in a day's work for the "Pond Stars."

Dive into a world of water features with Greg Wittstock, one of the most experienced backyard pond builders in the country. Greg owns Aquascape, Inc., the largest supplier of professional and hobbyist water feature products in the world. He is the "Pond Stars" boss and loves helping people reconnect with nature in their yards. Greg is joined by Ed, a scientist focused on the water environment of the project, and Brian, the foreman, who manages all of the construction. New guy Chris is along to learn the ropes. Together they build aquatic escapes one backyard at a time.

"Pond Stars" is produced by Warm Springs Productions for Nat Geo Wild. For Warm Springs Productions, executive producers are Jaymee Johnson, Marc Pierce, and Chris Richardson. For Nat Geo Wild, executive producer is Tracy Rudolph Jackson, and executive vice president and general manager is Geoff Daniels.
