When to Clean Your Rock or Gravel Pond
All rock and gravel ponds should be cleaned out at least once a year. Over the course of a year, ponds naturally collect silts, sediments, and heavy organic matter that need to be removed.
It is important to filter out these materials in order to reduce the diseases and parasites that often occur when the environment begins to warm. Doing so also reduces nutrients that stimulate more algae growth in your pond.
Overall, cleaning your pond will make it a healthier and safer environment for your fish while simultaneously making it more attractive. The best time to clean your pond is in the spring when fallen leaves and debris from past seasons have accumulated.
Pond cleaning is included in our maintenance. Here’s how we do it.
