Pond weeds present problems
I have been receiving lots of phone calls recently about controlling weeds in ponds. The easiest way to control weeds in a pond should have started during pond construction.
But since it’s too late to discuss pond construction when I get these calls, it usually puts us on the defensive to get control of the weed problem. Also, people tend to wait and call when the pond is completely covered with weeds instead of calling when they first emerge. So for those of you thinking of building a new pond, come in and see me before you start and get some of the information that you need to construct a pond as best as possible. For those of you that already have ponds, let’s talk about aquatic weeds.
