Common Pond Maintenance Questions
- How do you maintain a pond?
Maintaining a pond is similar to caring for a garden. Regular weeding, natural algae control, and water-plant-growth control are inevitable parts of pond maintenance. Pond algae can quickly get out of hand, especially during the hot days of summer. Ponds require more maintenance than pools.
- Are ponds a lot of maintenance?
The best things in life require maintenance. Backyard ponds are beautiful, relaxing, and a meaningful way to bring nature to you. If you find the pond maintenance is more than you have time for, maintenance services that consider your level of desired physical input are available.
- How do you take care of an outdoor pond?
A man-made outdoor pond is similar to a pool in its seasonal care. The water line is drained in the fall and the pump is removed for the winter season. Most plants are cut back in the spring to provide overwintering homes for insects, and a hole in the pond ice is maintained, so fish receive oxygen.
- How often do you need to clean a pond?
A man-made pond must be cleaned regularly. The pump must be checked every few days to clean its filter, especially during a heavy algae bloom. Algae is natural so removing the algae once a week and skimming out fallen leaves will help its control. Mud accumulation must be cleaned out once a year.
