David B. Duensing Designer and Principal

D. B. Duensing & Associates. Inc. began designing water features in the 1970s while working with stone to create nahual settings. This led to the formation in 1989 of David B. Duensing & Co. one of the nation's first firms to specialize in waterfall and water garden design, construction and troubleshooting. By the mid-1990s, Duensing became active in many aspects of the industry, including pond filtration product design and manufacturing. His knowledge of design, construction and maintenance - together with his affiliation with Anthony Archer-Willis - brings clients a breadth and depth of expertise that is unequalled among water feature designers.

Duensing served as the first President of The National Association of Pond Professionals. He contributed extensively to the association's original educational curriculum and certification program, and continues to lead more than 60 seminars annually for members of the water garden, swimming pool and irrigation industry. Duensing’s designs have been featured in numerous publications, including Pondkeeper Magazine, Water Garden News, Pool & Spa News and the Chicago Tribune. He is a frequent guest speaker at many national and international water gardening conferences.
