Let’s restore the beauty of your pond.
The presence of a pond whether it’s a backyard pond or a golf course pond, offers many benefits.
- It provides a home for wildlife
- helps with plant growth
- acts as water storage in the case of a fire pond
- creates environmental awareness
- adds to the beauty and enjoyment of the landscape
- improves property values
However, the beauty of a pond can quickly become an eyesore if it’s not properly maintained. The natural life cycle of a pond along with uncontrolled growth of invasive plants are usually the chief culprits.
Over time, deep ponds become shallow, due to the accumulation of sediment and the growth of aquatic plants. When it rains, more sediment is deposited. After a rainstorm the turns a murky brown color and takes longer to become clear again. Leaves, weeds, algae and other organic matter grow and settle at the bottom of the pond and eventually the delicate ecosystem of the pond is disrupted. If left untreated, the pond will completely fill in and become dry.
Warning signs that your pond’s ecosystem is in danger:
- unsightly weeds begin to emerge
- as weed growth increases, the surface water area starts shrinking in size
- pond depth is steadily decreasing
- the water quality begins to deteriorate
- the health and quantity of fish declines
