8 Spring Pond Tips to help you!!!
1. Clean out your pond, whether that means a full clean-out or just picking up a bit and rinsing things off.
4. Remove algae, leaves and other debris left over from the season before. This is crucial because an excess of decaying debris will add to the nutrient levels and the algae in the pond.
7. DO NOT overfeed your fish. Fish food that is not eaten will add more nutrients to the pond, helping feed the algae. See our 5 Tips for Feeding Fish article for more information.
