Fall fish pond maintenance in Rochester (NY) involves cleaning & tenting your water feature in preparation for the leaf drop. It is a good idea to keep leaves & debris out of your pond as they will only create problems later on. The decomposition of the debris can add toxic gases to the water which is harmful to the fish.
Leaving your waterfalls or water features running or turning them off for the winter is a matter of preference. Make certain there is a hole in any ice that form over the surface of the pond for harmful gases from aquatic plantsand leaves to escape, this is especially important for your fish. The battle with most ponds during the fall is with falling leaves and decaying organic matter. Having your pond maintained annually by Acorn Ponds & Waterfalls during the fall will make sure you and your koi fish are prepared for winter.

Pond Leaf Netting Service
A net is stretched across the pond and anchored with rocks and/or pins. It is best not to have the net resting on the water surface since it will be difficult to remove with all the debris on it. Once all the leaves have fallen, the net can be removed for the winter. We install a temporary pvc frame on our clients ponds to ensure no leaves settle in for the winter. We install our nets usually during the first 2 weeks of October before the leaves turn color.
