Well it's that time of year again for the back breaking task of spring cleaning on the pond. The plan is to try to get it done sometime next weekend(weather permitting). I will be removing more of the sweetflag and bullrush as that stuff would take over the entire pond if I didn't remove a majority of it every year. Last summer I had to take a saw to some of it as the roots went down about 3 feet to the bottom of the pond and were jammed in amongst some huge stones.
I have been looking for some Ludwigia sediodes to put in here this summer and hopefully can find some from a member here or else I have found an online source but would rather spend my money with people here.
I may try to put some plants from my tank in there if I can figure out a way to keep the koi away from them otherwise they will become food rather quickly. I put a 2 gallon bucket of duckweed in there last year and the next morning you could barely see any, except some that got right up next to the edge of the pond that they couldn't reach. I will try to post some pictures as soon as the clean up is done.
