Do I need to remove the green bits frm my pond, as shown in the image below?

Not sure if it should be there or not and if it's good or bad for the water. I have no wildlife in there at present.

Thanks all




Duckweed doesn't cause any harm as such though a complete covering of it is not what most people want to see. Just scoop off a good ammount of it with a fine net.

If you leave just a little bit in it will multiply like mad especially in the sun .I personally don't like it, but its difficult to get rid of.Good luck:-)

Okay, thanks for that both. Will be out there later to remove some of it.
