HOW TO MAINTAIN A POND

A back yard water garden can be a "retreat", a setting you can enjoy for years to come. Once your pond has been installed and with proper maintenance, it will require minimal expense over the years.

Whether you plan to add fish to your pond or not, clean, clear water is most desirable.  Achieving clarity in your water is not difficult... it's a matter of consistency.  Floating plants such as water lily, hyacinth or lettuce help minimize algae and create oxygen, which is necessary for fish.

Small aquatic snails are also helpful in keeping the pond clean. Among common snails used in this environment would be the Apple or Melantho snails.

If you're planning to add fish, such as koi or goldfish to your pond you'll need a filtration system along with a pump. This will help keep the water oxygenated and your fish healthy. If you live in an area where temperatures drop in the winter, you'll need to add a heater to keep the water from freezing. Keep in mind that some fish cannot survive these colder temperatures. For more information about pond fish, contact us today.

Probably the most effective way of keeping your water clear is Pond Bacteria. Adding bacteria adds bacterial colonies on the bottom of the pond and on the surface of anything you have placed in the pond, such as rocks and filters.
