Proper maintenance of your water
garden is essential, and retaining a specialist with an expertise in
reliable and maintenance and pond care can provide years of
enjoyment of your own water garden.
Our ponds are different than the
ponds of yesteryear. The stagnant pools of years ago were a disaster
for homeowners who had little time for maintenance.
But the living water systems of today work with nature, containing
constantly circulating, filtered water, living natural bacteria,
plants, and if desired, fish,- all natural parts of a balanced,
healthy miniature eco-system in your own yard!
There is no use of toxic chemicals. Our system lowers the
maintenance time required and makes owning a pond more affordable
and owner-friendly than ever before.
For the little maintenance that is required, it is important to
retain a specialist who is an expert in reliable maintenance and
pond care. Our maintenance contracts are flexible based on your
needs, and they are perfect for doing the things necessary to
keeping your system healthy and alive.
For many of our valued customers, we recommend a bi-monthly care
plan. During our visits to your water garden, we add bacteria,
fertilize your plants, and do algae, leaf, and predator control. Two

Spring Cleaning - Spring cleaning is an annual ritual in many
households, but in a water garden this means you need to prevent the
murky water caused by buildup algae and plant debris.
Spring cleaning of your water
garden is an essential part of maintaining the health of any "living
water system." Southern Water Gardens Inc offers spring cleaning as
a part of our maintenance plan.
In the spring Mother Nature has
her own way of washing out our lakes, streams, and rivers, with
melting snow and lots of rain. But your water garden is a
self-contained eco-system, and it may need a little help cleaning
itself out each spring. That's where we come in. We simulate what
Mother Nature normally does herself.
At the beginning of each new season we remove muck and decomposing
organic matter that has built up in your pond and system components,
keeping your system fresh, healthy, and free of debris. Your only
job is to enjoy your garden and show it off to your friends all

In the fall it is important to
remove dead leaves. When dead leaves build up in the bottom of your
pond they can decompose over the winter, release harmful gases, and
even harm your fish and eco-system.
The build-up of gases can be
especially harmful to your fish if your pond ices over, and the
gases from the decomposing organic matter get trapped inside. The
professionals from Southern Water Gardens Inc will net leaves from
your pond every fall as part of our regular maintenance program.
The fall cleaning is not as
thorough as the spring cleaning, but it is an important part of the
annual maintenance necessary to keep your pond, stream, and
filtering components clear of debris, keeping your living pond
system healthy and fresh year round.
