June Pond Tips & Annual Pond Contest

Need some pond tips for June? We’ve got them. Summer has arrived and it is time to start changing some of the maintenance activities.

Tim Deal

Having a Koi pond at your home is undoubtedly the quickest way to reduce stress and noise that you have to deal with on a regular basis. This peaceful and quiet place is essentially a man-made paradise. Apart from eliminating stress and tension from your mind, a Koi pond is a perfect way of adding beauty to your backyard or any outdoor space.  However, it requires some effort to keep it in its healthiest and most attractive condition.

Need a few more pond tips. Look no further…

  • Do not start feeding your pond fish until the pond water is at least 50°F.
  • Add beneficial bacteria. Remember beneficial bacteria removes ammonia, nitrite, nitrate, and organic debris such as dead leaves, uneaten fish food, fish waste etc., that cause water clarity problems.
  • Maintain salt level between 2.5 – 3.0 ppt.
  • Switch to higher protein food 2-4 times daily.
  • Back flush filter media weekly.
  • Minimum 10% weekly water change.
  • Check chemical levels.

Whether you have a water garden, pondless water features, large koi pond, or two acre lake, Creative Visions Landscapes can help get what you want out of that body of water and enjoy your pond. We carry many different pond supplies including; pumps, filters, skimmers, liner/underlayment, UV supplies, water treatments, aquatic plants, koi and other fish and fish food. So, if you have a question about your pond, please don’t hesitate to contact us.

Don’t forget our Annual Pond Contest!!

Have A Pond Or Water Garden?
We’re eager to see your beautiful and inspired creation!

Landscape Tips for January

Landscape Tips for JanuaryHappy 2015!

It’s January, start of a New Year! We don’t know about you, but we’re happy to leave 2014 behind. We’ve got a lot of great plans for 2015. So, keep your eyes out for notifications from us! We look forward to sharing this great year with you!

This weather is definitely throwing everything for a loop. With the warmer temperatures we’ve got Spring Fever! If the weather stays warmer everything will start blooming early, which works for us!

We have had a few days that we’re pretty sure the ocean turned upside down and emptied itself on us. So, with that, keep an eye on washouts and what they have uncovered including bulbs!

Landscape Tips for January

  • Watch for field mice damage on lower trunks of trees and shrubs. Eliminate hiding places by removing weeds. Use traps and approved baits as necessary.
  • Check the soil moisture around boxwood and holly, water if needed.
  • Snow can be used as mulch on perennials and areas where bulbs were planted last fall. (not that we have any snow)
  • Don’t walk on lawns until frost has melted.
  • Make sure our recent deluges have not left bulbs and tree roots bare.

What things do you work on outside at this time of the year? Do you have an Landscape Tips for January that you’d like to share with us?
