Pond Water Quality
One major concern for water garden and garden pond enthusiasts is achieving and maintaining clear water. When water gardens and garden ponds are first constructed there is usually a rush to fill them up with fish and aquatic plants, but it is important to consider the natural process of these ecosystems. In nature a pond has a period of time for all the components to adjust and interact as the pond evolves. Although suspended algae in water gardens and garden ponds is to be expected most people want to keep it to a minimum. Constructed water gardens and garden ponds require help in order to avoid problems with excess algae.
