July is hot, humid, full of sunshine, and fireworks here in New Jersey. It's also the month we mark on our calendars to perform our Mid-Summer Pond/Water Feature Visits. July marks the middle of our ponding season and the time has come to perform some important maintenance tasks to keep our fish ponds and water features running strong for the remainder of the season.
What should I be doing?
You may be thinking to yourself, I've been performing my typical weekly maintenance, what in the world should I be doing now? While the tasks may differ slightly for a pond vs a fountain or waterfall, a thorough check of the feature will help in keeping it running strong for the remainder of the season. By now your feature has endured all the spring rain, pollen, and the spring flower and other organic material form the trees in the spring. It's time to clean it up a bit and do a once over of the system.
Here's what we do during our Mid-Summer Check Visits:
Why should I be doing Mid-Summer Maintenance?
Performing the above maintenance tasks to your pond or water feature is equivalent to having a tune-up for your car. Any maintenance is a performed to reduce any unexpected frustrations down the road, performing Mid-Summer Pond Maintenance is no different. Preventative maintenance will help you enjoy the beautiful water feature you have in your backyard.
Our Mid Summer Check Visits are part of our Maintenance Memberships, and an essential maintenance task during the year.
So mark you calendars every July to remind yourself to perform the above preventative maintenance tasks on your pond or water feature, you'll be happy you did!
