If you have integrated water into your landscape design, whether in the form of a stream or a pond, you’ll need to maintain that water feature to keep it looking great. If left unattended, you might wind up with unsightly algae growth and other issues. Don’t let this fate befall your prized water feature – contact TLC right away to lean on our pond and stream programs for important maintenance work.
It is algae growth that is the main enemy when caring for ponds and streams. If you get algae growth that spreads throughout your water feature, it will become a dark green mess that doesn’t look anything like it did when it was new. While water movement, such as what will occur in a stream, can keep algae growth down, it won’t necessarily stop it from happening.
The abundant sunshine that we enjoy in the Jackson, WY area is a blessing and a big part of what makes this such a great place to live. But as the water gets warm sitting in your pond, and the sun beats down day after day, unwanted growth is likely to occur. Let the team at TLC stay on top of it with our pond and stream program so you don’t end up with a mess on your hands by the end of the summer.
Beyond standard algae growth, it’s also possible for invasive plant species to take hold in your water elements. That can have a negative impact on the health of your landscape as a whole, which is why it’s important to keep tabs on the health of your water and respond accordingly. You may not have the knowledge necessary to watch for these invasive plants or know how to remove them properly. Not to worry – TLC is fully qualified to do the work.
