Why Do You Need Ongoing Pond Maintenance?
Not maintaining your outdoor garden pond can cause it to become an ugly and unhealthy structure that is even dangerous for nurturing the aquatic life living there. Regular pond maintenance will help the fish in your pond thrive and be as healthy as possible. It also prevents dirt from clogging up filters, pond liner tears, and just generally becoming an unsightly eyesore if not kept up with.
Here are some of the best things to pay attention to in order to keep a well maintained outdoor pond:
- Clean your pond regularly by skimming and removing leaves or dirt.
- Prevent nearby plants from becoming overgrown or growing into your pond.
- Grow strategic water plants.
- Learn to maintain the pond in the winter months.
- Keep control over any algae growing.
- Maintain your water pump, filters, and fountains.
- Patch up and control any leaks.
- Keep and maintain an appropriate water level.
- Keep a steady and regular water temperature.
What Determines Your Ponds Maintenance Schedule?
The Size Of Your Pond
The size of the pond is a major factor when it comes to pond maintenance. Obviously larger ponds take more time to maintain and sometimes require different methods to properly maintain. For example, smaller ponds we can generally access fairly easily which can keep the labor cost down. Larger ponds, with intricate fountains or waterfalls, aren't so easy to access. We may need waders or even a small boat to properly access what we need.
Do You Have Fish In Your Pond?
If you have Koi or other fish in your pond the water quality must be maintained to a very specific standard. The water PH and total dissolved solids (minerals) need to be monitored and corrected when necessary. Usually some type of aerator is required and that must be maintained as well.
When Was The Last Time The Pond Was Maintained?
If your pond is regularly maintained it makes our job a lot easier. Sometimes we'll be called out to get a neglected pond back into a manageable state and that can cost more just due to the amount of additional work involved. To keep your pond in excellent shape and keep overall maintenance costs down, it's often best to just stay on top of the maintenance.
If you've just purchased a home with a pond that has been neglected we recommend scheduling a thorough pond cleaning before we begin with maintenance.
How Many Plants Are In The Pond?
Your plants contribute to the natural beauty and health of your ponds ecosystem. However, plants require upkeep like trimming, feeding, and sometimes even relocation or removal. Invasive plants can take over your pond as well and should be removed when necessary. An overgrown pond can look like an overgrown swamp and that's probably not the look you're going for.
Lighting And Electrical
Lighting and electrical can add to the maintenance requirements for your pond. Lights need to be maintained, they might need to be changed out as bulbs burn-out or if they are damaged. The electrical and wiring also needs to be maintained. Whenever you add electrical to the outdoors in a wet environment you are inviting problems to occur. This is just par for the course. When your lighting and electrical is working fine, great! When it's not.... Then it needs troubleshooting and repairs.
Your Pond Filtration System
Your pond filter keeps your water clean and clear. The filters or filter media must be inspected and changed or cleaned fairly regularly. Depending on the filtration system the cartridges or the specific media used can contribute the overall cost of your maintenance.
Choosing The Right Pond Contractor To Maintain Your Pond
Keeping your pond happy, healthy, and clear requires knowledge and time (either yours or a professional team). It's important to choose the right contractor for the job. Look for a company with experience in pond maintenance and one that can offer you a variety of services to keep your pond healthy and looking great.
Make sure that they are properly licensed and insured and that they have a good reputation in the community. Your pond is an asset to your property only when it's healthy and looking great. You want to make sure that you're getting the best possible service for your pond.

Absolutely an A-1, excellent shop and personnel to deal with in all regards. Jay at the front desk has experience and knowledge to answer pond and fish questions and help you in building your own water feature and stocking it with koi and gold fish. Along , with Sandy at the front desk, they've made all my dealings with them a pleasure. As to service calls and personnel Colby has been my primary service contact and is competent and has a background and experience working in all aspects of the pond business from installation and maintenance to necessary chemical knowledge and fish - a pleasure to work with and gain knowledge from him. All the personnel have been a pleasure to work with and if you're looking to build a pond, this is the place to go and these are the people to talk to about any project you might have. I talk from my experience with a 10'X14' koi pond with 6 large (16"+) koi and numerous smaller koi, mosquito and growing babies. One of the pleasures in life is to simply go out and enjoy the pond/ waterfall/ and fish in the peace and quiet of the early morning and meditate - total relaxation that starts the day off right. Thanks to Jay and his staff.
The pond cleaning team did a beautiful job cleaning my pond. The entire team were professional, knowledgeable, friendly, and extremely efficient. I couldn’t be more pleased and will definitely be a returning customer!
We thoroughly enjoyed working with Oklahoma Ponds. Colby was excellent. He was clearly knowledgeable and went beyond doing a pond cleaning. He made suggestions to enhance the pond's operation and to enhance the visual appeal. The service was great, friendly, and trustworthy.
We have an unusual pump fitting on our pond, and Oklahoma Ponds has been very helpful with issues that have come up. They are very knowledgeable, helpful and eager to search for practical (and inexpensive) solutions to pond maintenance issues.
Stop in and stroll around their outdoor garden. Their pond/fountain displays are spectacular, with a variety of plants to choose from. I’ve bought fish, plants, and pond maintenance supplies. We have never been disappointed. Sandy is the sweetest, and has always been there to help me anytime. I highly Recommend this growing Edmond business.
The folks who work at Edmond Ponds are courteous and very knowledgeable. I would hire them again for any pond maintenance and everyone should visit their store. Such beautiful plants and koi!
They were very professional and did a thorough job. Answered a lot of questions we had about maintenance and was really helpful. Will definitely use again in the future.
I have tried other Pond Maintenance companies in the area and Oklahoma Ponds is clearly the best. It's a well managed company and their service techs are well trained, experienced, and take pride in their work. I highly recommend Oklahoma Ponds.
