Preparing for Winter


A well designed pond requires very little maintenance. But seasonal cleanings are a very important aspect of owning a pond. The most important cleanings are the spring cleaning and the fall cleaning.

Pond Cleaning can be a labor intensive and dirty process, which includes:

  • Removing fish and safely keeping them for the duration of the cleaning.
  • Carefully removing and hydrating the plants.
  • Draining all the water.
  • Removing excess organic debris, knows as sludge, muck, and slime.
  • Cleaning filter media.
  • Replacing and dechlorinating the water
  • Acclimating the fish and plants to the new water conditions.

We are happy to provide this service to those unsure of the proper methods, or veteran pond owners that wish to have this service done for them.

We also offer contracted service on either weekly, bi-monthly, or monthly basis where we top off the pond, clean necessary filter equipment, prune and fertilize plants, top off the pond, pull up stringy algae, sticks, leaves, and check the water quality.

Please be advised that we provide this advice as a reference only. Every pond is different, and may present different problems and solutions, so take care to research and thoroughly think out any situations before you take any actions.
