With fall approaching I did something this year I should've done last year.
I ordered a pond net for my pond.
If you have trees with leaves that can blow in your pond do yourself a huge favor and buy one!
Leaves don't decompse very well in a pond and when we drained out the old one there were tons of leaves still in it from the previous fall!
I can't wait to get that net. It will save me tons of hassle this year. Last year I used a pond net and scooped the leaves out when I saw them but so many sunk before I even got them.
I also ordered a pond thermometer and special fish food for fall and spring
feeding. Plus I got 2 pond baskets for plants for next spring
