There are many ways to maintain a balanced pond, but using plants is the best solution for keeping algae away and making sure the pond is an excellent habitat for your pond.
Whatever the size of your pond, whether it’s 10,000 litres or 100,000 litres, pond plants will help decrease the amount of maintenance to keep your pond clean.
Plants also stop extra maintenance and create a long-term solution that saves time cleaning and the costs of chemicals and cleaning products.
Water plants consume the acidic nitrates from pond water, which would be harmful to life.
As algae require sunlight, water and nutrients to live, adding plants to the pond will help combat the algae and stop it from growing.
Aquatic plants with high nutrient uptake will be beneficial to clear up your pond, and they also look stunning!
Water lilies are a common addition to both ponds and swimponds. They cover the water, stopping sunlight from entering the pond and inevitably stopping algae from growing!
