Green soup in my barrel pond

Posted: 04/07/2013 at 19:04

Green water ? probably in full sun all day without shade. If, it's a small pond the problem is easy. Introduce a physical barrier between the pond and the sun - simple.


What is this?

Thankyou all for your responses....

John - I don't suppose you could direct me to your thread about ponds please? And am also glad someone has bought the same product as me, was it satisfactory? Have you had any time to take a new photo of what the pond looks like now, as I would love something to aspire to

Fairy - Thankyou for all the info, will defintiely look into oxygenators and will have a look about wildlife ponds online too.

Marshmello - Thankyou too for all the info, I shall be planting a Hawthorn hedge near to the pond and a few Delphiniums then, as the hole I have made for it to go in is in full sun. And I know it's a bit small, but the downside is I will have to wait until christmas to get a larger one, so I think I'll stick with this one for now and see how I go, possibly buy a considerably larger one in the near future.

Yes, you can buy bigger at a later date. Good luck with your pond.
