The majority of ponds will have an algae problem at some point so we thought we would help with a little information below.
Algae/Blanket weed are due to a variety of factors because it thrives in ponds that have been set in a sunny position with little shade across the surface area of the pond. It is worth adding plants which give surface coverage such as lily’s as the leaves provide shade and add oxygenating plants.
Also it can come from natural pond debris like invasive pond weeds, fallen leaves and fish faeces which lead to a build up of organic matter. It is worth cleaning your pond at the same time as treatment.
