Annual Spring Clean out It is a good idea to begin the new outdoor year with a clean pond. This service is performed as early in March or April as your pond is ice-free. We drain the pond, remove the debris that settled into it over the winter, clean, and refill it with fresh, pure water. And since your fish have become used to the existing pond water, during cleaning we place them in a bucket along with some of the pond water. Then they are reintroduced into the pond safely in their bucket, keeping them acclimated - not shocked. Your pond is then ready for your warm weather enjoyment.

On-Site Consulting If you prefer to do-it-yourself, but would like some guidance, we can assist you. You still have installed your own pond, but have received the benefits of expert knowledge so you don't make any catastrophic mistakes. Or if you just need help with the design and will then build it yourself, we will be happy to assist (see Design Process).

Custom Rehabilitation - If you have a pond but have found it's taking up too much time and is too much work, we're here to help. We can remove your existing pond and replace it with an Aquascape system that works with Mother Nature, and takes only a few minutes a week to keep running and looking beautiful. If you prefer, we can replace it with a pondless waterfall so you will still hear the soothing sounds of the water you've come to love, but will have even less work.

Fall Clean out - Some pond owners choose to have their ponds cleaned out in the fall. If your pond has accumulated a lot of leaves or pine needles, it might be beneficial to get them cleaned out before winter. As leaves or needles break down during the winter, they create unwanted nutrients in the pond. The next spring these nutrients feed the algae and are detrimental to your pond's health. We can also place netting over your pond to cut down on the number of leaves clogging it up.

Winter Preparation and/or Shut Down - We eliminate the work of getting your pond ready for winter. We trim back plants that have grown too big for your pond and clean out larger debris. These preparations prepare your pond so your fish will have a healthy place to hibernate for the winter. For those who elect to shut down their waterfalls and streams, we empty the plumbing so the pipes don't freeze and crack.

Periodic or Routine Maintenance - Even though our ponds don't require much maintenance, some of our customers prefer to have us monitor their pond on a regular basis. These services include cleaning debris out of the pond or skimmer, cleaning and adding water to the pond, adding natural bacteria to the system, or doing an SAB treatment for your stream.

We look forward to serving you soon.
