The philosophy behind a Pond Ecosystem is to work with nature instead of fighting it. We use finesse, not force, to maintain a healthy and balanced habitat. A Pond Ecosystem works with the natural environment to provide everything necessary for the various plant and animal inhabitants to thrive.
Have you inherited a fish pond with your new house? Here’s what you need to know, and what you need to do, to get the most enjoyment out of your pond.
The first thing to do is learn about your pond. Here is what to know:
After learning these details, the next thing to do is take action. This probably means cleaning your pond. We’ve found that many ponds are not properly maintained, especially after the previous owner has left the property. Believe it or not, this is not an uncommon scenario. The most important steps to rejuvenating your pond are cleaning out all the debris and muck that has been accumulating on the bottom, and inspecting the pump and filter to make sure they are in proper working order. The more large debris you remove, the less work your muck-destroying beneficial bacteria and aeration system will need to do – and the quicker your pond will return to optimal conditions.
