first point I need to make about pond
care in autumn leaves that fall into the pond will decay
if not removed. Perhaps you can skim the surface of your pond to remove
them. However, this method of pond care—once fall is really
kicking in—may have to be done many times throughout the same
One better idea, in my opinion, for keeping falling leaves out of
your pond is to purchase a cover for it. Perhaps just a small canvas
big enough to cover the water, nothing fancy, you can set it up with
stakes or stones.
Try to keep as much sludge out of the pond during the colder months.
There will be slime, decay of water plants and other plant debris,
and you will certainly need to perform the proper pond care to keep
your pond from becoming an enormous chore when the warm seasons begin.
If you have fish in the water, for great pond care, be sure to feed
them less. This is because when the cold approaches the fish will
eat less due to a slowing metabolism. Extra fish food in your pond
can contribute to the bacterial problems that often develop during
the winter. Someone who wants to provide great pond care for his or
her pond will want to make sure that, by using good pond care, he
or she will keep as few bacterial sources away from the water as he
or she possibly can.
For your fishes, pond care is very important. You can provide foods
for your fish, which contain a protein content of twenty-five to thirty-two
percent. A wheat germ based food is good fish pond care. During this
time of year the food easily digested.
Pond care spring and autumn food is an excellent choice for you to
maintain your pond at this time of year. When you practice the proper
pond care, you will definitely be glad you did.
These are only some of the guidelines for pond care. Depending on
your individual pond care needs, the advice I have just given may
vary. For example: even if you have no fish in your pond, certain
pond care is still especially important.
