Let Us Do The Dirty Work
Most water gardeners in Upstate (NY) look to their ponds as a source of a new lifestyle of relaxation and escape, not a source of work, maintenance or repairs. Fortunately, a properly designed water feature should require very little maintenance and with regular doses of natural bacteria to help keep the water clear, there are a few regular maintenance services that Acorn Ponds & Waterfalls provides for all of Rochester (NY) and the surrounding towns in Western (NY)
It's reasonable to expect that most of your regular pond maintenance will relate to the filtration system. The amount of maintenance your pond requires generally depends on the type of system that filters your pond. For example, if the pump and filter sit at the bottom of the pond, then you may find yourself cleaning them at least once a week. Not only that, but you'll need to get into the pond to perform the cleaning.

Reduce Pond Maintenance With Filtration
A pond that is filtered with skimmers and biological filters will require much less maintenance. Regular maintenance with this type of system consists of emptying the debris nets and cleaning the filter pads in the skimmer. This only takes a few minutes of your time, and this type of filter is easily accessible too! How often this is required depends on the amount of debris and leaves that find their way into your pond.
When the aquatic plants in your pond are actively growing, you'll also need to keep an eye out for and remove any yellowing leaves and spent flowers, especially on water lilies.
