Here are some answers to the most common questions we in the Water Garden Department get asked:

 

The #1 question we always get asked over everything and anything else is ALGAE. “Why is my pond turning green?”, or “I’ve got so much string algae, and no matter how much I remove it, it just keeps growing back at a rapid rate. What can I do?”

 

There are THREE solutions to fight algae:

 

#1: Get a quality strong enough pump, with the correct capacity for your pond. Install an external filtration system. The filters come with a UV light installed in them which really helps stop algae growth dead in its tracks.

 

#2: Buy pond plants such as floating Hyacinths. These beautiful flowering plants act like algae sponges. Be careful with how many of these plants you buy as they do spread at a very fast rate.

 

#3: You can purchase products such as pond peat, beneficial bacteria, and an algaecide. When used weekly, these products will kill all algae and create a balanced eco-system.

 

If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to ask our Water Garden Department staff.
