Fall Pond Maintenance
It's the time of year to get ready for the colder months. Along with that are some needed chores such as - cutting back aquatic plants, winterizing scarecrows, irrigation systems, and fountains, installing Leaf Netting, etc... If you would like us to do these tasks for you; please give us a call and we will take care of your seasonal chores for you. 
It's that time of year again. If you need us to service your Sprinkler System for the Winter months please give us a call and we will put you on the list. Don't forget this important task or you could have a HUGE repair problem facing you next Spring
I cannot endure to waste anything as precious as autumn sunshine
by staying in the house.
So I spend almost all the daylight hours in the open air.

"The winds will blow their own freshness into you,
and the storms their energy,
while cares will drop away from you
like the leaves of Autumn."
- John Muir



We are proud to have Jack and Basil Baudo's pond as our Pond of the Month. Jack and his father enjoy this pond every evening. It compliments the garden trail in the back yard perfectly.
As their guest, when you come thru the breezeway, a rushing stream greets you. When you  cross the stream over a stone bridge you have the choice;  to walk the garden trail or you can enter the sitting area in the back yard under the pergola. Either place is an ideal way to enjoy the backyard.

Greetings to all!  Fall is upon us! I don't know about you, but I LOVE the Fall season! It's been a GREAT Summer, but I always look forward to a nice cool "FALL" season.
It means dinner's out by the pond, fall gardening, family get together's etc. . . . And this one's no different. We just had our 9th Annual "Moonlight" POND TOUR and it was a perfect night!
Now it's time for our Annual Fall Festival!  Good food, Pumpkin Carving & fun stuff for the kids like our Petting Zoo & Face Painting + some GREAT seasonal workshops. Whether you're a "Pond Veteran" or a newcomer to the hobby, you will really enjoy these workshops and learn from them.
We will cover seasonal chores like how to cut your plants back, divide plants, netting your pond, WHEN to stop feeding your fish & more. Your gonna love it & it's FREE. So bring the kids and come out and see us. 
 Here's to a GREAT Fall season!

The Water Gardeners Fall Checklist


Plants and Debris: Remove leaves, plant debris and other organic matter. Large amounts of leaves and debris settled in the bottom of your pond can cause poor water clarity over the winter which is harmful to your fish. It can be a breading ground for fungi and or harmful bacteria and parasites. If you don't have a dipping net, get one! This will make your life so much easier.

NETTING: Netting your Water Garden during the fall will help control leaves and debris and checking your skimmer regularly during heavy leaf falls will keep your pond in proper working condition. This will also make your SPRING cleanout easier.

FISH HEALTH: When water temps reach 55 to 60 degrees switch to low temp fish food available at Carter's Nursery. Their metabolism slows down during lowering temps and LOW TEMP FISH FOOD will be easier for them to digest. When you end feeding you should always follow up with a Medicated fish food.


BACTERIA: When temps drop down to around 55 to 60 degrees you can switch to Low Temp Bacteria for a healthier pond and an easier start up in Spring.
