Maintaining Your Sanctuary

If you have been dreaming about creating an outdoor sanctuary complete with a gorgeous and soul comforting water feature but have been worried about the work it will take to maintain it, keep reading.

There is no doubt that water features offer the perfect spot to relax at the end of a long day, to entertain loved ones, and to enjoy wildlife! For some, busy schedules leave little time for maintenance and while the desire is there to enjoy a water feature, you may not have the equal desire to devote time to maintaining one.

Regular Maintenance

The skimmer box is where most of the regular maintenance of your pond will need to take place. On a weekly basis, you’ll need to pull the rocks back, remove the skimmer lid and then shake out the filters to clean them. Additionally, if your pond has trees in the area, you’ll want to be sure to skim the leaves that fall into the pond or bio falls areas. Decaying leaves can change the composition of the ecosystem and could lead to water quality issues.

Seasonal Maintenance

To keep your waterscape in top shape, seasonal maintenance is important. Removing excess debris, keeping tabs on the water quality, and making sure everything is running smoothly should be addressed seasonally.
