Water Feature Maintenance - Rock & Liner
How much maintenance does a water garden require? A well design professionally installed ecosystem pond requires little maintenance. Trimming of the plants is recommended once or more times per month depending on your pond, plant load and geographical location. For northern climates we recommend a fall shutdown if you are turning the water feature off for the winter freeze. A hole in the ice is needed to release the build up of gases if you have fish. Respectively we recommend a spring clean out and start up each year to get your pond in optimal shape for you to enjoy during the warmer seasons. If you are not in the northern climate you should still do a pond clean out yearly or as recommended by your local pond maintenance expert. Adding beneficial bacteria is a key component to maintaining a healthy ecosystem. Many pond maintenance companies can set up a completely worry free annual maintenance plan taking care of everything you can think so you can just sit back and enjoy your water feature.
