Fall To-Do List


It’s hard to believe that summer is over and fall is now upon us! This is a beautiful time of the year, as nature begins to prepare itself for the long cold winter months ahead. Sometimes it can be confusing trying to figure out what needs to be done to your pond to get it ready for winter, so we’ve simplified the Fall Maintenance Process to help you out.
  • As leaves fall from nearby trees, you’ll probably have to empty the debris net every day to keep up with the influx of leaves. Another option to prevent a buildup of leaves is to install some Pond Netting, which comes in several different sizes to fit your pond.
  • Have an Aerator on hand for the cold snaps that are sure to come. Aeration is very important during winter months, as aeration helps to keep a small hole open in the surface of the pond to aid in degassing.
  • Switch over to feeding your fish a cold water fish food, such as our Cold Water Fish Food. Their digestive systems are in the process of shutting down, so a food formulated for the colder temperatures will help them to make the transition.
  • Lastly, take some extra measures to ensure your aquatic plants make it through the winter months with a ThermoPlanter, available at The Pond Store.
