How can I keep my pond clear?
Yorkshire, United Kingdom
Does anyone have any suggestions for keeping a pond clear? Mine is not very large approx 2 metre mtre square, I put it in in Feb this year. Its main purpose is just to attract wildlife, I have some aquatic plants, one small water lilly and some marginal plants. It attracted frogs in Spring so I have had tadpoles. The water is becoming cloudy and there is blanket weed developing , I keep scooping this out.
Anyone have any tips? Do you think I should have a pump or filter in the pond, would some fish help to keep the weed down? I really want it to look good but I am a bit despondant so far.
