The Importance of Regular Pond Maintenance & Cleaning

A sparkling pond in your backyard is the perfect way to invite birds and wildlife into your outdoor space. You will enjoy knowing you are supporting nature with fresh water and plants that will create a miniature ecosystem. However, keeping that biosphere healthy is critical.

 

While Florida pond maintenance can take a little effort, the results make it well worth it. Whether you decide to handle the work yourself or hire a pond management company, the local flora and fauna will appreciate the time you took to design a small ecological haven.

 

Routine Cleaning

 

Regular pond maintenance will include cleaning the filters and pump, removing debris from the surface and the bottom of the pond, and scrubbing waterfalls and fountains. It is also important to clean up and remove any dead foliage.

 

Deep Cleaning

 

Depending on the size and location of your pond, you should schedule a deep cleaning once or twice a year. You will need to remove pumps, filters, etc., and rinse it out or use a pond vacuum to do a proper job and give it the thorough cleaning it requires.

 

While ponds are beautiful additions to your landscaping, they can also be a lot of work. Enjoy the benefits of their beauty without the hassle when you talk to The Lake Doctors, Inc. in the Florida Panhandle.
