Getting a Jump Start on Algae this Spring

Algae can be one of the most frustrating parts of maintaining a pond. However, by taking proactive steps in the spring to head off algae growth you can begin to spend more time enjoying the natural beauty of your pond and less time maintaining it.

For those of you new to ponding, there are two common types of algae you're most likely to encounter:

String Algae are fibrous green strands of algae that can grow out of control if not kept in check. Excessive growth of the string algae removes the oxygen that fish need from the pond water.

Green Water Algae Bloom are tiny algae spores that will cause your pond water to turn green and cloudy. This is part of a natural cycle caused by an excess of certain trace minerals, nutrients and sunlight.

Pond Lighting – Enjoy The Nighttime Beauty Of Your Pond
For many of us, the majority of our daylight hours are consumed by our work, travels, family time and other commitments that make our lives hectic.

Underwater lights add a whole new dimension to ponds and waterfalls once the sun goes down. The shadows created by aquatic plants, the dancing light rays created by ripples on the pond surface and even the fish are not visible in the daylight.

Eliminating Undesirable Aquatic Plants

Summertime is here with plant life in full bloom! Plant enthusiasts scurry to tend and coax their flower beds, gardens and green landscaping into dense, lush growths to be admired by all.

Dense, “lush” plant growth in backyard ponds and water gardens!?!?! Well, that’s another story. Tending and coaxing normally becomes pulling, ripping, raking and treating. Granted that many water garden fans passionately grow beautiful, often potted, aquatic plants alongside and within their water features, but most pond owners battle for control of their water against nuisance aquatic plants throughout the growing season. In this article, we’ll talk about two aquatic plants that are very different from one another, yet are nearly equal in stubbornness towards their eradication: Cattails & Duckweed.

The RoundtableIt is in the first five minutes of a conversation that we have to establish rapport and trust. Understanding what influences good communication and being able to quickly adjust naturally to each personality type will greatly contribute to a mutually positive outcome — and, in the case of a sales call, greatly increase our rate of success.

If asked, most of us would say that effective communications would depend largely on the words we speak. But studies show that is simply not true. Whether consciously or unconsciously, we have become trained to respond more to tonality and to pick up on every subtle movement of body language. In fact, tonality and body language together contribute a whopping 93 percent of how we communicate with each other....read more

Algae Boosting Phosphorus

Recently, much has been made about limiting the use of phosphorus. Some fertilizer brands have stopped adding phosphorus to their product and several states have banned the use of phosphorus in lawn fertilizer outright. If you haven’t heard by now phosphorus is like steroids for algae. It can cause large, harmful algae blooms in river systems and lakes.

But what does this mean in the scope of a small backyard pond or private lake? Before we understand what we can do, we first need to be conscious of the nutrient balance any body of water naturally contains.

Where's My Water?
One of the most frustrating experiences for a pond owner is an unexplained water loss. When a pond owner notices that the pond’s water level is dropping at a significantly faster rate than normal, most will assume that the loss is caused by a leak in the pond. There is no simple answer to the mystery of missing water and while a leak very well may be the cause, more often than not Mother Nature may be playing a role. So before we dive into a conclusion let’s consider the following causes for water loss...

    Landscape Design

    Natural, Natural, Natural! These are the three most important words you need to remember when designing outdoors. Think about streams that you have seen when you walked through the woods, or awesome pictures of natural waterfalls and rivers you have seen in photos, on the television or on the internet. They all have the same common thread – they look as though they have been there a very long time. The same concept holds true in stream design and construction today.
    I like to have my streams wind naturally through the landscape utilizing existing features on the property. Keep in mind that nature typically produces gentle easy turns and each stream is an original creation. Turns can also engage the senses both acoustically and visually with the addition of a waterfall drop. I like to place an eye catcher at every turn; this could be a single specimen plant, like a Laceleaf Japanese Maple or a colorful grouping of perennials layered with some wispy ornamental grasses behind. Use the curves of the feature to your advantage, creating interest from beginning to end. Remember, there are no straight lines in nature!

    The RoundtableEarly in my sales and marketing career I was fortunate to be surrounded by great mentors. Each in their own right, were successful businessmen, but the reason they excelled beyond others, was because they understood and demonstrated the laws of great leadership.

    One of those early mentors told me to always be a student of the business. His meaning was to truly understand your customer’s business, their needs, and to become highly skilled with the best business practices and leadership abilities. This lead to a career long commitment of learning and putting into practice the best and most successful business principles I could find by reading at least one business and one psychology related book a year, while learning from successful business owners and...

    Improving Pond Water Quality
    Water gardening is a very enjoyable hobby, and for many a true passion. The pleasure of experiencing the many life forms and natural elements existing together in harmony is never ending. Water gardens are rich with colors, are powerful with motion and are pleasing with sound. Unfortunately, features that are designed or built improperly may be rich with green algae, or powerful, obnoxious odors.

    Success with controlling water quality in a pond or other water feature can be easily attained. The key is to understand the basic activities that happen day in and day out in your pond. The enjoyment of water gardening can be greatly enhanced by recognizing why natural processes occur in your pond and having the ability to correct a problem if it should arise.

    What Causes Fish Kills?The harsh winter this year coupled with little preventative care could be a recipe for disaster as ponds thaw out this spring. Weather is an important factor in any season for causing fish kill. If lethargic fish near the surface are seen “gulping for air” an emergency situation exists and requires immediate attention. The larger adult fish are the first to die when oxygen levels are low as their oxygen needs are higher. To protect their investments, pond owners need take preventative measures to guard against shifts in weather, over-vegetation and other factors that contribute to devastating fish kill.
