Pond Weeds - General Information

Many kinds of aquatic pond weeds and pond problems may present themselves and affect the intended use of a pond. Duckweed is one of the most common pond weeds and floats on the surface of the pond. Submerged pond weeds may grow to the surface and affect the use of the pond. These weeds may include hydrilla, watermilfoil, elodea, and many other types of pond weeds. Algae, both filamentous and planktonic, may grow in abundance to create scums or mats.

Pond management is essential for keeping a pond useful and healthy. Pond weeds require sunlight, nutrients, and a carbon source to grow so pond weed treatment must consider all three. Our PondRestore® Ultra and PondRestore® packages bring together the best products to do just that. PondRestore® Ultra's PhosControl® and SparKlear® reduce the nutrients available, limiting the quantity of aquatic plants that can grow. The blue dye in PondRestore® Ultra blocks out specific light rays critical to photosynthesis and adds a natural blue beauty. Select PondRestore® Ultra or PondRestore® for effective results at a reasonable cost, without environmental damage or risks to swimming or wildlife.
