An informative article by Veronica Lorson Fowler in Living the Country Life discusses some of the nightmares that owners can experience when managing their ponds. The author provides practical and easy to understand solutions for maintaining a healthy pond ecosystem.
The article begins by quoting Eric Norland, an Extension specialist in pond management at Ohio State University … “A pond is a living ecosystem. There is no single right way to manage a pond and no one wrong way. The key is to decide what you want out of a pond and how to get it.”
“Algae, especially the ropy filamentous algae, is probably the biggest problem for pond owners”, says Stratford Kay, North Carolina State University aquatic specialist. This problem is followed closely by duckweed and duckweed-like floating weeds.”
The PondHawk® from LINNE Industries, LLC is a solar-powered subsurface bubble aeration system that can help control algae and duckweed economically. Please give us a call for for more information.
