Clear out pond de­bris

Garden News (UK) - - What To Do -

At this time of year, ponds can be­come clogged with all man­ner of de­bris such as fallen leaves, fruits and seed heads as well as rub­bish that has blown in. Us­ing a net or rake, skim any de­bris off the sur­face of the wa­ter be­fore it starts to rot down and emit gases that will up­set the bal­ance of your pond’s ecosys­tem. Be­fore adding the wet ma­te­rial to your com­post, place it on the side of the pond to al­low any ex­tracted pond life to escape back into the wa­ter.
