Did you know some types of netting work more effectively than others depending on the time of year? Learn which types of pond netting are best suited for each of the different seasons.
Benefits of Pond Netting
Pond netting offers a simple and convenient way to help maintain pond aesthetics and water quality. As a physical barrier, it traps and keeps unsightly organic debris from settling into your pond. Active removal of trapped organic debris prevents buildup of nutrients that compromise pond water quality and fuel aggressive nuisance algae growth. Put pond netting to most effective use by matching the netting mesh spacing with the type of debris you are trying to keep out of your pond.
Use Fine Mesh Pond Netting in Spring
Fine weave netting such as the KW Solutions Premium Pond Netting and the Nycon Products Big Top Pond Covers, are great choices for trapping smaller organic debris such as catkins and tree pollen more common during the spring months.
Use Medium to Coarse Mesh Pond Netting in Summer
Although the quantity of organic debris blowing into your pond significantly decreases during summer, pond netting serves a great alternative function particularly useful for koi keepers during the summer. Pond netting such as KW Solutions Blue Heron Protection Nets, provides great defense against hungry wildlife that see your prized koi as an easy meal.
Use Medium to Coarse Mesh Pond Netting in Fall
Medium to coarse mesh pond netting such as the Laguna Pond Netting and Atlantic Water Gardens Pond & Garden Protector Kit, effectively keeps falling leaves and debris out of your pond. Medium mesh weave netting such as the Dalen Black Nylon Pond Netting, is a great choice if falling pine needles are a concern.
