Tackling an overgrown pond with ease

Tackling an overgrown pond with ease

Accumulating waste from leaves, aquatic weeds, and fish converts beautiful ponds to living cesspools if left unmanaged. Deteriorating conditions open the door to a number of hazards to fish and humans.

Lets take action! First, apply an aquatic herbicide to knock back overgrowth. Once the weeds are managed, target the waste.

-Step 1: Identify weeds

-Step 2: Select an herbicide that meets your needs

-Step 3: Reduce the muck

Wait! Don't stop there!

Don’t let algae sneak in once the weeds are gone! Pond weeds can act as a sun blocker. Once the weeds are gone, this opens the door for algae to take over with a vengeance! Additional steps to improve the overall pond health reduces this opportunistic organism from a total takeover.

Proactive treatments to reduce future algae blooms include:

Pond Cleanse: Reduces unwanted nutrients suspended in water

Phosphate Eliminator: Reduces phosphate in water and buffers pH

Muck Remover: Reduces muck/sludge at the bottom of the pond

Pond Dye: Blocks sunlight from reaching the bottom where growth begins

These treatments should be used regularly to manage nutrients ant sunlight needed for algae to grow and thrive.
