‘Aquascape’ Now Defined in Webster’s Dictionary
Anyone who thought water gardening was far from entering mainstream America may be changing their minds once they hear about the newest addition to Merriam-Webster’s Collegiate Dictionary. According to a July release from the Associated Press, “aquascape” is one of the newest entries to the dictionary.
The word “aquascape” is listed as a noun, meaning a scenic view of a body of water or an area having a natural or constructed aquatic feature. This addition to the dictionary means that ponds are on people’s minds and tongues, which makes Greg Wittstock, president and CEO of Aquascape Designs, a happy man.
“I never imagined that ‘aquascape’ would become a word in the dictionary when I dreamed up my company name during a 40-minute car ride home from work,” Wittstock said. “You have to admit, that’s pretty amazing!”
