Summer Pond Care

By: Kyle B. Brown

Sales Associate/Design Consultant

As the summer months get into full swing, there are a few things to consider when caring for your water garden to maintain a healthy ecosystem and keep it looking beautiful.

1. Continue to use beneficial bacteria regularly.  If you started using cold weather beneficial bacteria in the early season, it is now time to switch over to the normal beneficial bacteria.  Beneficial bacteria is going to be the key component to keep your pond looking crystal clear throughout the season!

2. Feed your fish, BUT DON’T OVER-FEED THEM!  Fish are more active during these months and will go into overdrive on these warm days, and eat much more than what they need, this means more more waste.  The excess waste can create dangerous levels of ammonia in the pond which will stress your fish and possibly cause death.

3. Keep your pump running.  Ponds have a much greater need for oxygen during the summer months, however these are the months where oxygen production is at its lowest.  Allowing your pump and stream to run is going to create more oxygen and keep everything much healthier.  Also, add pond plants!  Plants add even more oxygen during the hot summer days.

4. Remove debris from filters, HOWEVER, don’t wash and clean your filter mats.  Doing so will remove the beneficial bacteria that are doing a good job of keeping your water crystal clear.

5. Treat as needed.  Let’s face it, even the healthiest ecosystem will have an issue every now and then.  We carry a full line of water treatments that are both fish and plant safe.  Also, summer is a great time to add the Ion-Gen System to any water feature.  It is a system that adds ionized copper to the water in the feature, killing algae producing particles that dwell in your water.  Call us today and ask us about the system and also ask about our 15% off sale on this system!

Following these simple tips will ensure that your water feature will provide you hours of entertainment and enjoyment this summer!  Please feel free to contact us here at Tussey Mtn Mulch Landscape Center with any water feature questions.
