Pond Stars: Welcome to the Jungle

Pond Stars: Welcome to the Jungle
In this episode of Pond Stars, Greg and the guys head to the sunshine state for two massive pond projects outside of Jacksonville, Florida. The first backyard water feature is for the owner of an arena football team, Larry Payne and his family, who are building one of the team's most challenging designs this year, complete with a 30-foot pond, a 2,000-pound Cypress Tree bench and several tons of beautiful Tennessee fieldstone. Brian feels the pressure when Greg promises the client a brand-new, high-tech underwater koi camera for the family to view their fish from inside on their tv. Now Brian has to track one down and get it to work. For the second project, Marcus Galligan asks Greg and the crew to design and install a new pond, patio and pergola, all before Marcus' wife returns to town in less than 48 hours. With their work cut out for them in Florida the guys have to race the clock, and face construction challenges they've never seen, all while trying to blend two unique backyards with the wetlands and coastal ecosystems surrounding them.
