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.

Excellent service and quick response to repair our waterfall feature. Much appreciated and would recommend Oklahoma Ponds if you’re in need of any maintenance.

Talk about above and beyond service. Jay and his crew are fantastic. Working in the cold, and making my pond crystal clear. Jay helped me find an affordable option when my old system finally kicked the bucket (literally! it was leaking like mad). I've used them for a couple years for pond maintenance and I would absolutely recommend them to anyone and everyone!

You can measure of business not just by they work they initially do, but the follow up and responsiveness afterward. Jay has been exceptionally responsive, both for routine maintenance as well as when I had emergencies. I highly recommend this business.

Jay from Oklahoma Ponds is excellent and professional. We had a unique leak in our pond which other pond companies were unable to find and fix. Jay was able to locate it and fix it and our pond has not leaked since. If you are looking for an honest pond builder or pond maintenance company you cant go wrong with Oklahoma Ponds. P.s. Jay rebuilt our waterfall and it is absolutely gorgeous. It changed the wholelook of our pond and we could not be more pleased

I found Oklahoma Ponds online and decided to give them a try. My first experience with them was two years ago when they cleaned my Pond. They did a fantastic job. They later contacted me about cleaning a winterizing my pond. I accepted their proposal and was not disappointed. My most recent experience was when they came out again to open my pond for the summer. My pond is now beautiful and crystal clear. They did the work at the appointed time. I have been more then pleased with thier work and recommend them.

October 2019, I contacted Jay at Oklahoma Ponds to make a change in my service company. He came out and took time to explain the ponds, cleaning and maintenance with valuable insight to what I could do myself. March 2020, Kyle came out to do the annual cleaning. He worked all day and let my grandkids see the fish as they were transferred between ponds. My experience with this company is phenomenal and I would highly recommend.
