Why Should I Net My Pond?|Pond Tenting Services|Rochester|NY|New York|Near Me
At Acorn Ponds & Waterfalls, we feel tenting or netting your pond is one of the top 3 most important maintenance tasks that should be done to your pond every year.
Often we are asked, "Why even bother if I am going to clean it out in the spring?"
Netting your pond will make the clean-out easier in the spring, but that's not the reason we highly suggest this maintenance task. Keeping the leaves out will provide a much better environment for your fish to hibernate over the winter in your pond.
When leaves fall into the water they immediately begin decaying and producing "not so nice stuff" in the water, which can be harmful to your fish. An over abundance of this "not so nice stuff", caused by buckets full of leaves, could cause your fish to not make it through the winter.
Net your pond, keep a majority of those leaves out, and your fish will thank you!
