As fall and winter approaches, pond owners have many questions about what they should do to care for their pond during the colder months. There are a number easy steps you can take to care for your pond in the winter and fall. One of the most common concerns of pond owners is leaves falling into their pond. This is not only a cosmetic issue. As leaves start to decay in your pond, they produce toxic gases that can harm your fish. It is advisable to remove as many leaves as you can as they fall into the pond. Protective netting can also be installed over your pond in order to keep them from falling in altogether.
Water treatments are also important to care for your pond during the fall and winter.
