Product Feature: Pond Netting

This product is ideal for keeping fish in and predators out. Using a netting during the fall keeps debris from entering the pond and is reusable for multiple seasons.

Aquascape multi-purpose pond netting comes conveniently rolled, making it easier to install. Don't be fooled by the small package - this is quality, full-sized pond netting! Aquascape multi-purpose pond netting comes complete with stakes; keeping the net secure and in place.

Many new pond owners don't know about pond and leaf netting, many seasoned pond owners use it but aren't real sure why, and even many of those who know why don't necessarily know how. It's time to add some clarity to the issue of pond netting.

It's actually pretty simple. The primary reason for using netting over the pond is to keep leaves out of the water. (Netting can also be used to protect fish from predators. While that is another issue altogether.) But, the question may still linger, "Why do we need to keep the leaves out of our ponds?"

Obviously leaves covering the bottom of the pond look bad, but that is far from the main issue. As these leaves begin to decompose they release many compounds that put the lives of your fish at risk and promote algae growth. Pond keepers that have fish die in the winter often attribute it to the cold, but in actuality this fish loss is usually due to the leaf buildup in the pond. It may be possible to remove some of the leaves after they are in the pond and before they decay, but you can't get all of them and keeping them out is far easier.

Having a protective pond net over your water feature is essential for proper fall maintenance and keeps your pond clean and debris free. Installing a net in the fall will help make the leaf removal process a non-problem, and at the same time, makes life easier come spring when you open your beloved pond. Once installed by Action Water Gardens, you leave it on until winter comes and then which you remove so it does not get damaged by ice or snow buildup. 

So do not hesitate, get the net, have us install it and make your life easier and happier.
