Pond Algae Control

Pond algae control is absolutely necessary if you want to maintain the overall health and appearance of your pond. There are a couple of types of pond algae and a few ways that you can help prevent and treat your pond from the takeover of the notorious algae. Keep in mind, algae is not particularly harmful but it is by no means a lovely addition to your pond either. It is important to incorporate pond algae control into your pond maintenance routine if you want to be able to see the fish and plants that you have decorated your pond with.

The first type of algae that needs to be discussed is string algae. String algae will often cause your pond to have a greenish appearance. One method of pond algae control is through the use of barley straw. Place some barley straw in a net bag and suspend it in your pond water. Unfortunately, this may take up to a couple of weeks to start working.
