Backyard water gardens are always a bounty of green and colorful flowers and plants. This can be an extremely beautiful addition to any property. But as beautiful as water gardens can be, they can also be deceiving. Underneath there can lurk a horror of a mess.
The addition of a good filtration system is essential in keeping up the appearance and water quality of the water garden. Throughout time, a water garden can give an illusion of “clean” clear water, but eventually all ponds and water gardens inevitably will need a MuckOut. Airborne debris, such as leaves, branches, grass clippings, etc. all create a layer of rotting material on the bottom of your pond. This not only can cause discoloration of the water, but also can interfere with the chemistry of the water, possibly causing distress on any pond inhabitants.
MuckOuts can be very messy work. It requires you to get down and dirty. Luckily Aquaria Service Techs don’t mind the nasty. Especially if the end results can be clean, clear water and future enjoyment a backyard water garden.
