Taking Care Of Your Beautiful Garden Pond

July 5th, 2012 · No Comments

A garden pond in your Hong Kong property home can make your garden look more attractive. However, just like  gardens, maintaining a garden pond carries with it a sort of responsibility on behalf of the owner to make sure that the pond is in good condition throughout the year. So in order to keep a pond in your garden looks great the following guidelines should be followed.

When colder air takes over, pond care will still be needed if you want to maintain the good condition of your pond. Autumn can bring challenges for pond care.

The first to consider concerning the care of the garden pond is the falling leaves brought by the wind, the rain, etc. It is important to remove them as leaves will decay if left for several days. All you have to do is skim the surface of your pond in order to remove fallen leaves. However, this method of pond care–once fall is really kicking in–may have to be done several times throughout the day.

In my opinion, one good idea, for keeping falling leaves out of your pond is to buy a net to cover the same. Perhaps just a small canvas big enough to cover the water, nothing fancy, and you can set it up with the help of stakes or stones.

Try to keep as much mud out of the pond during the colder months. There will be slime, decay of water plants and other plant debris, and you will surely have to to perform the proper pond care just to keep your pond from becoming an enormous task once the warm seasons begin.

In the event that your pond has fishes on it, be sure to feed them less. This is due to the fact that during cold season, fishes eat less owing to slow metabolism. Extra fish food in your pond can contribute to the bacterial problems that often develop during cold or rainy season. Someone who wants to provide great pond care for his or her pond will want to make sure that, by using good pond care, he or she will keep the bacterial away from the water.

For the fishes, pond care is very important. You can provide foods for your fish, which contain a protein content of twenty-five to thirty-two percent. A wheat germ based food is good fish pond care. During this time of year the food easily digested.

In caring for your garden pond, spring and autumn food is considered good choice in maintaining your pond in good condition at this time of year. When you practice the proper pond care, you will definitely be glad you did.

These are only some of the guidelines for pond care. Depending on your individual pond care needs, the advice I have just given may vary. For example: even if you have no fish in your pond, certain pond care is still especially important.
