Garden Pond Maintenance

outdoor pond s

Outdoor ponds and water features are fantastic additions to any property. However, over time a pond may become clogged up with fish waste, overgrown aquatic plants and other waste that settles at the bottom of the pond. To keep the water healthy and clear, it is a good idea to familiarise yourself with some basic outdoor pond maintenance tips if you have installed or are planning to install a water feature in your garden.

Servicing and Repairs

We can repair, service, supply and replace your filter/pump/ultra violet light. If your pond or water feature is damaged or cracked we will do our best ot fix it.

Pond Cleaning

We offer a regular mainteannce and cleaning service for your pond or feature. You may need weekly, monthly maintenance to keep it looking its best, or a full pond clean when required. Every pond is different so we will assess and plan accordingly. For example, for a full pond clean when your pond is well stocked with fish and plants we can set up a holding pool and transfer them while is work is carried out. This allows us to fully drain and inspect your pond with minimal distruption to fish and wildlife.

Our full draining services include the following procedures:

  • Remove all fish and wildlife to a holding pool
  • Remove all plants. Cut back and re-pot if required
  • Pump out pond scrub or pressure wash the sides and bottoms of the pond
  • Remove all silt and deposit on flower beds or compost. (Silt is very high in nitrates and is good for your flower beds)
  • Re-fill pond and treat with water conditioner
  • Replace plants and re-potted plants
  • Introduce fish and wildlife back into your pond
  • Service the filter/pump/ultra violet light and renew the bulb if needed
  • Advise you on the best way to keep your pond or water feature looking good all year round.

Water Quality

If you have Green water, blanket weed, slime algae or general algae problems, we will advise you on the best algae treatment or filter system and UVC to create crystal clear water 360 days of the year. We install and maintain all major brands of pumps.

Seasonal care is another important aspect of outdoor pond care. Generally, it is recommended that a professional clean be undertaken during winter, when there is a higher likelihood of debris falling into the water. This can impact on the water health of your pond.
