Spring Pond Clean

Pond Tips – Cleaning

March is not a bad time to do a pond clean if you can get it done before the frogs spawn. Signs your pond needs cleaning are green water, lots of duckweed and a big build-up of leaves on the bottom. If you do drain the pool and clean it try and leave some of the leaves and silt as they form the base of the food chain for tadpoles and other pond animals. You also need to keep an eye out for newts and frogs that have started to return to the pond about now.
