Fall Pond Netting

Did you know we offer complete Fall netting services? Let us do the work for you! It is important to take certain precautions when it comes to closing your pond until Spring arrives. Our netting services aid in this process. We will trim back your aquatic plants, clean out your filters, remove your pump(s), and net your pond or pondless waterfall to help keep out falling leaf debris. Netting your pond can also help keep unwanted critters and the dreaded heron from feasting on your fish. In addition to netting, we also have aerators and de-icers...
