Just Add Water has created multiple water features that you can go visit any time for self guided pond tours! The largest one is at Created In Johnston (6330 Merle Hay Rd Johnston. IA) here you will be able to see a complete ecosystem pond with a wetland filter and a negative edge. There is also a pondless waterfall on site.
The last stop on the self guided pond tour is at Canoyer Garden Center (3355 SE Gateway Dr, Grimes, IA 50111). This pondless waterfall has awesome large moss rocks!
Every year we have at least one pond tour, you will be able to get all the information for the upcoming tours on this web page. You can also find up to date info on our Facebook group Just Add Water Pond Tour. This group is a great place to interact with other people from the tours, you can ask questions, share pictures of your water feature, and leave us feedback about how the tours are going.
Our pond tours will always have a cause. Our first pond tour of the 2016 season will be FREE but it is a canned food drive. Our goal is to fill the back of one our work trucks with canned goods for the Iowa Food Pantry.
The first tour will be a small 5 stop tour with a great variety of water features! We will have a large pond, a smaller pond, a long pondless waterfall, a pondless waterfall made with big moss rock and a pond with moss rock! The last stop on the tour will be our “Pond Central”. This is where we will hang out after the tour, there will be food and refreshments. The tour will be a Poker Run, at every stop you will receive a playing card. At the end of the tour you will have a poker hand and we will be giving away prizes so make sure you stick around mingle!
