There is no doubt that ponds provide much beauty and pleasure. However, there are times when even the most successful hobbyist needs to take a break from the chores involved in maintaining a pond. Sometimes people need help because their work schedules no longer permit them to regularly attend to pond duties, while some people find themselves away from home for long periods because they do a lot of travelling. Quite a few pond owners manage to keep their ponds in excellent condition for years, and then they come to realize that it’s time to slow down and take things easy.
All these situations doesn’t mean that a pond should fall into neglect. At Aquadon, we provide year-round maintenance so pond owners can continue to enjoy their favorite water feature, even when it is not possible for them to do the various chores they may have successfully carried out in the past.

Pond Cleaning and Maintenance
Here are some of our usual recommendations when performing various pond maintenance tasks for our Maryland clients:
- Spring. In spring, the pond bottom has to be cleaned, sometimes by draining it and hosing down the muck that is sure to gather there over time. Water lilies have to be divided or repotted, while frost-sensitive plants have to be removed from storage and returned to the pond. If the pump and filters have been removed during winter, they need to be reinstalled.
- Summer. In summer, when the temperature goes up, the pond’s water chemistry has to be tested weekly. Plants need to be trimmed, debris and dead leaves have to be removed, and filters and pumps have to be regularly checked for clogs. Any fish in residence has to be checked for sores or unusual behavior, and plant pests have to be controlled. If necessary, fertilizer should be applied to the potted plants, but care should be given that this does not result in overgrowth of algae.
- Fall. It is the time to conscientiously skim off falling leaves; cold-sensitive plants and fish need to be taken indoors; and pumps and filters need to be disconnected and placed in storage.
- Winter. Finally, in winter, a pond needs a constant air hole with a bubbler or an air stone to provide oxygen for the fish and keep the water from freezing over.
