Why professional pond maintenance matters

A water feature is an investment. With proper maintenance, it is a very valuable one. Regular maintenance is the difference between a stagnant, smelly pond and a soothing water feature that’s brimming with life. Here’s what our professional pond care offers, and why pond maintenance is not a DIY job:

Protection against debris and organic waste

Maintaining ecological balance in your pond is critical. Annual cleaning preserves water clarity by keeping the plant and animal life in and around your pond healthy. Over time, debris from surrounding plants & trees collect and form sludge in your pond. If left unaddressed, this could result in harm to fish or other life in your pond, and produce unwelcome odors.

Proper materials, filters, and pumps

Without the proper equipment, materials, & expertise, ponds can be challenging to maintain. We specialize in maintaining ornamental landscapes, and have the tools and expertise to deliver cost-effective, efficient service no matter the size of your pond or its needs. We aim to ensure quality cleaning and maintenance that will last, in order to reduce costly fixes down the line. We achieve this by using the right equipment for the job.

Quality structural fixes, lighting, and mechanics

We recommend draining ponds once a year, to clean pond surfaces and look for any necessary repairs to the floor, walls, filters or pumps. It’s important to identify structural damages early on to avoid more costly fixes later on. This goes for damages to the pond itself, or to the pumps and filters that keep it in balance. Ponds benefit from a fresh start every once in a while, and a professional crew can get this done quickly.

Is it time to schedule some TLC?

Ponds require upkeep and proactive monitoring. Professional maintenance ensures balance, and protects the longevity of your investment. Our pond maintenance services include biological, mechanical, or chemical fixes and are tailored to each client. From algae control and water treatment, to winterization, our pond maintenance professionals bring the best in service and experience to your landscape. Show visitors you care with quality professional pond maintenance.
