When fall rolls around, the change of seasons is apparent by the beautiful, multi-colored leaves and the cool change in temperatures. It may be your favorite time of year, but how will the cooler temperature and falling leaves affect your water feature? Can ponds and trees live together peacefully in the fall? With a couple precautions and a little maintenance, they can!
When adding fish to a new pond or after a cleanout or complete water change, it's best to wait a minimum of 72 hours for the water chemistry and temperature of the pond to stabilize. Make sure to add a double dose of Aquascape Pond Detoxifier when first filling the pond to neutralize chlorine and chloramine, reduce fish stress, and detoxify heavy metals.
Pond maintenance doesn't have to be complicated or frustrating! Hundreds of our pond clients spend less than 15 minutes a week on pond maintenance and enjoy a beautiful, sparkling water feature year-round. Read on to find out which maintenance products we use in our water features to achieve that straight-from-the-Cascades look!
