Springtime Pond Changes

Now that spring is here, you’re probably noticing some changes in your pond. Your fish are coming back to life and you may even be able to see some plant growth. Some changes that are taking place, however, aren’t so desirable.

Like that excess algae growth that you might have noticed. Understanding the transition that your pond makes from winter into spring is essential in maintaining a healthy pond ecosystem. You may have just spent your weekend cleaning your pond – or have had Garden Ponds Unlimited come out and clean it for you.

A couple of days or weeks pass, and you notice an incredible growth of string algae. “Not again,” you screech to yourself. “I thought my pond was clean!” Well, my friend, cleanliness does not necessarily mean algae-free, especially in the cool water of the early spring.

Some simple, yet important, steps can be the difference between a balanced pond with minimal maintenance and a pond that requires unnecessary maintenance. Although bacteria and plants don’t start growing properly until water temperature reaches 55°F, there are still some simple steps you can take to maintain a crystal clear, trouble-free pond.

We recommend using D-Solv, which will help remove attached organic debris from waterfall, streams, and rocks in seconds. Another product that will help eliminate the headache of algae is Green Away. Green Away effectively controls types of algae like Chlorella, Blanketweed, and string or hair algae. Both of these products can be used throughout the season. They are especially effective helping maintain optimum water conditions until the water warms up and the beneficial bacteria, or SAT, and aquatic plants have the opportunity to kick in.
