From Seth Gade, Senior Aquatic Manager

On this day of “GREEN” skip the blarney and go with the tried and true natural products to get your pond off to a good start. Start the season off with a “shot” of enzymes to wake up the pond and kick start the biological activity. Apply granular algaecides once the water temperatures rise above 55 degrees to eliminate any unsightly algae, and get the aeration system up and running.
Start to use bacteria and nutrient reduction agents throughout the season to compete or “fight” with the algae and nusiance aquatic vegetation.
