Zac DeGarmeaux (Owner)
Pond Megastore, A Family Company Despite the large sounding name, we are honestly a small family company. Pond Megastore went into online distribution of our plant selection in 2005. Our owner Zac DeGarmeaux began working with ponds at a young age in the early 1990s and by the mid-2000s had a very nice local pond business he felt he could take national. Plants were our specialty. There were vast numbers of pond installers, lots of folks with koi interests but very few really seemed to know plants. There are so many choices and Zac grew up growing competition vegetables as a youth along with his ever-expanding pond business. The plants were so much fun and so underutilized this became his focus.
